Braga Fest Images 01: The Tatalu

Braga Fest 2008 is scheduled to start this Sunday, December 28, and will be on until Tuesday, December 30. As I said a few times before, Braga Festival is an annual cultural and tourism event held on Jalan Braga, Bandung. Different street performances, food bazaar, and different kinds of attractions and exhibitions are held in this fest.

To welcome the 2008 Braga Fest, starting today, I'm going to post photos from previous years' Braga Fest so that you will have some ideas what the fest is like.

Today's photos show the Tatalu Percussion Group street performance. Tatalu is a group of young people who are experimenting with different kinds of daily objects, such as the garbage barrels, iron/tin barrels, and bamboo to be used as musical instuements. Their performance in the 2006 Braga Fest was very dynamic and attracted a lot of audience.

Nice to see common objects being used to make music and nice to see younger people making music...
