Gambus Caliente!




What an exhilarating night! I haven't been to a gambus party for such a long time. It was great listening to the wonderful toe-tapping rhythms and beats of the boys from Kumpulan Gambus Kunci Batu. They are so ROCK!

Thank you Don Diego for inviting me over to cover the event AND to the Montoyas for supporting the anakbrunei.org charity calendar project by buying nearly FIFTY calendars in total!

Terima kasih banyak2 to Bizzie Lizzie as well for featuring the calendar project in today's BB. It has been so great to receive heart-warming offers of help on this project. Suddenly my target of 1000 pieces doesn't seem so impossible after all...

I just hope my trusty Canon printer holds up :)

I didn't know that gambus can make such kmusic that people can dance to. Its middle-easternish kind of music isn't it? From the pictures, it looks very happening.
