A well balanced sound is very important for any band. Marc is taking care of the sound for Boi Akih on this Indonesian tour. “At the Erasmus Huis I had all the equipment I had asked for, which is great”.

After the concert all the musicians were stormed for signing CDs and Boi Akih t-shirts. The Indonesian agent sold out all the CDs he brought from Yogjakarta. We took another 100 on the plane this morning, and I am going to try and sell them in the break of tomorrow’s concert!

    Meltwater picked up the Jakarta Post story “Moluccan princess and her merry men enchant” – http://bit.ly/WwlVs – because it mentioned “Dirk de Jong, communications officer for the Netherland-based IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre based in the Netherlands, and Akihary and Brouwer’s neighbor for 14 years”. The journalist got everything right except the URL of your blog.
