7th April 2011: The EBPP Music Team has just returned to our village after participating in the exciting One Dollar for Music foundation’s [ODFM – www.onedollarformusic.com] extensive four week music workshop in Denpasar, as part of ODFM’s “Young Sounds of Indonesia” project. The music team has acquired very important teaching and training skills, attended workshops in youth leadership and class management, as well as widened their knowledge in different aspects of music world, from improving their playing ability, to working in different genres and styles of music. We now feel that EBPP’s Edi, Wayan and Made Kari are much better equipped to deal with the challenging task of teaching music in our village, in Desa Ban, Karangasem. Yeny Manche, as overall EBPP music development and curriculum coordinator, joined the workshop for a few days, to learn and give valuable support to our young Music Team members.

As we mentioned in our previous blog post, a group of music trainees were brought to Bali from Lombok to train with our music group in ODFM’s Young Sounds of Indonesia project. This workshop aims to improve and “invest in sustainable creativity” of Indonesia’s youth, yang juga dilatih untuk menjadi pemimpin muda dalam komunitas mereka. Salah satu yang menarik dari workshop ini adalah partisipasi enam lokakarya- trainee dari Lombok dalam program EBPP dalam tiga desa pegunungan kami.

Ketika enam peserta tiba di markas up-gunung kami di desa Daya dan menerima informasi umum tentang program EBBP yang berbeda di daerah Desa Ban, mereka mengungkapkan perasaan mereka bahwa mereka tidak hanya akan melatih dan mengajar musik di sekolah kami, tetapi juga akan belajar lebih banyak tentang bekerja di daerah terpencil dan bagaimana mungkin untuk memperbaiki kondisi suatu wilayah miskin dengan niat baik dan kerja keras.

Keenam peserta bergabung dengan tim musik kami untuk bekerja dan menempatkan keterampilan yang baru diperoleh dalam tiga sekolah EBPP kami, di dusun Cegi, Gregg dan Pendem, mengunjungi agar. Kami merancang adalah jadwal khusus dengan cara ini sehingga peserta bisa mendapatkan gambaran yang utuh tentang kondisi dan lingkungan di dusun yang berbeda desa kami. Cegi memiliki mudah dan lebih cepat akses saat ini dan anak-anaknya lebih terbuka dan terbiasa bertemu orang luar. Akses ke Darmaji sulit, tetapi anak-anak sekolah kami ada sangat hidup dan sangat reseptif dan berbakat dengan kelas musik dan kegiatan. Last but not least adalah Dusun Manikaji, yang sangat sulit dijangkau dan yang anak-anak umumnya lebih cukup dan pendiam di alam mereka. Rencananya terbukti brilian dan pelatihan semua pergi bersama indah, with all of the participants taking turns in teaching students of different ages, in different sizes of groups and various settings. All along the workshop our EBPP Music Team of Edi, Wayan and Made Kari did a wonderful job of leading and coordinating the classes and activities in the

During the workshop another interesting connection was made, when we learned that some of our Lombok trainees have a Balinese background in their families. They knew from their parents about their ancestors arriving in Lombok from Bali in the distant past, and even though all of them are Muslim some of them have family members that can speak the Balinese language, and some even practice certain customs originating from the Balinese – Hindu culture.

And so we concluded this amazing workshop with a very strong feeling that we are all essentially the same, that we are one big family and that we heed the cause! This wonderful group of trainees together with the EBPP Music Team will surely utilize these most essential musical and leadership-enhancing capabilities in this most important work that they will continue to do in their respective communities.
