Latest Issue: Kabar Indonesia 04


Issue 04 of Kabar Indonesia

The islands of Indonesia have intrigued outsiders for centuries, drawing curious souls to these shores in search of everything from the Greater Bird of Paradise to gamelan music. It’s a stream of interaction that continues to find forms of expression as diverse as monkeys with dyed blonde hair dressed to look like Evel Knievel and an opera about a Canadian expat in 1930s Bali.

In Sumba, a French balloonist has come down to earth to dig wells, while in Ternate, street art is as likely to reflect a passion for Japanese anime as for heroes of the struggle for Indonesian independence.

The creativity fostered at Bali Purnati sees collaborations between cultures take flight and find their place on an international stage, while the Blair brothers shared stories of the exotic unknown that still dazzle today.

Grittier realities are found on the streets of Jakarta, where both performing monkeys and their teenage handlers endure harsh existences.

And a world away, Amandari celebrates 20 years, while visits to Novus Gawana and Amanwana are celebrations of Indonesia’s stunning natural beauty.
