I wrote a long article about my trip to Bandung in West Java, but it was a bit academic, so instead I made this film. I sing the Sundanese song "Es Lilin" here, not terribly well, I was put on the spot during a "latihan" or music session, they gave me a microphone and a book with the words in Sundanese and made me sing. But everyone encouraged me and they added backing vocals which you will hear. I met some wonderful people and some wonderful musicians. Over the song, I put up some stills extracted from video footage while I was there. I think a picture can tell a thousand words so I'll go now and leave you to watch this short film.Some of the people in the photos are famous in Indonesia and elsewhere.
Love and Peace
