EBPP Students’ performance 2011 CHRISTMAS EVE @ Amankila Resort, Manggis, Bali

These 22 talented 10-15 year old performers are all children from EBPP’s Darmaji and Jatituhu Schools, situated in 2 of the most isolated hamlets high up Mount Abang slopes, 4.5 kilometres from the nearest highway. As the first generation in their region to be educated, they all thirst for knowledge and new skills and they are all, without a doubt, the pride of their respective communities.

Their one music class/week for the last year has opened more avenues for them to express themselves and choose their future; all of the 3 girls who sang have ambitions to be professional singers.
Taught by Bambang Sri Handoko, EBPP’s Volunteer Music Teacher, and with all the instruments donated, they learnt to perform this simple opera after only 2 weeks training.
