Two UK musicians and artists, Laura Kidd a.k.a She Makes War and Danielle Carragher a.k.a Dani are currently in Indonesia for a one-month residency with Indonesia’s ethnic-experimental band, Kunokini.
Laura and Dani both captured their journey in exciting blog pieces, offering their fresh perspective about Indonesia and the thrilling aspects of their journey.
Dani, in her blog, shared stories about how she learned the hundreds of languages in Indonesia and the thousands of different cultures and traditions within it. Two specific Indonesian tribes, the Bajo and Toraja, particularly caught Dani’s interest. She mentioned that their culture resonates with her interest in Celtic and Hindu mythology.
On the other hand, Laura, has been sharing a lot of exciting content on social media and on her blog. The first part of her blog talks about her endeavor to try and acclimatise to Indonesia’s culture. Like Dani, she also highlighted her interest in Indonesia’s rich history and culture.
"It is amazing to be living in such a beautiful space with open-hearted people who are rich in culture, tradition and stories and it is such a joy to listen and share. The house is surrounded by bamboo with plenty of land, fresh fruit and new sounds." - Dani Carragher.
