Indonesian Independence Day

Filed under: Gigs,Pictures — webmaster @ 3:00 pm

Every August 17th, Indonesia celebrates its national independence day. There are often celebrations at the Embassy as well as at the Ambassador’s residence in Rockliffe Park.

This year, we were doubly lucky: we got to play at the cultural celebrations at the Ambassador’s residence, and we got to debut our new outfits, graciously gifted to us by the Indonesian Embassy. We were a hit!

After playing, we spent many minutes posing for photographs and talking to Indonesians living in Ottawa and the surrounding area. It was especially gratifying to talk to people from Bali and to find out that we sound pretty good to their ears.

Thanks to Robert. S Vibert for taking such great photos of the group!

What do you think of the new outfits?
