MyIndo Meets Peter Fennema

One of the things you I love when I visit Indonesia is the pop music. All around the archipelago from Manado to Medan to Makassar you hear some great tunes (and some extremely dodgy ones -- like karaoke on the ferry from Banda Aceh to Pulau Sabang for example).

Fairy [ones of my fave bloggers] of MyIndo fame interviews Peter Fennema, who takes these songs and records his own versions of them -- which are bloody fantastic btw!!

Here Peter's a tribute to Chriseye:

Hey John, whaddup. Thanks a bunch for posting the links to Peter's coverage, it's really appreciated. I also told Peter to visit your blog. :)

Btw, I'll update the broken Youtube page on my website soon. Alternatively you may visit Youtube to view my video review of The Naked Traveler book: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QahD31ettSY

PS: Could you delete that previous comment entry from me? My browser was being a tad proactive and decided to post before I was done typing my name in! :)

Hi John, thanks for your post about me. Good to know that there are more "orang bule" that appreciate Indonesian pop music.
