    Hi Ceto,

    Likewise. It is certainly my intention to return to Indonesia and to cover more jazz events for All About Jazz. There's a lot of very interesting, creative music coming from there, and the fusion of gamelan and jazz is particularly exciting. See you next time!

    Hi Ian, very nice to find your article when i was looking for anything related to Indonesia & jazz, since i have recently been introduced to Indonesian jazz and am learning since, mainly due to some old children's songs from childhood (mine and my parents who were born there, but i wasn't).

    Thru Facebook i met <b>Riandy Kurniawan</b>, editor of another jazz source, namely Jazzuality.
