Rachel Maryam Smith in residence

In September 2019, Sanggar O had the pleasure of welcoming visual and performing artist Ms Rachel Maryam Smith (and her mother, Ms Maud) from California for a week of discussion, site visits and song. Rachel was researching the experience of Indonesian-Dutch people in the USA and was looking for background and potential interviews in Indonesia.

While in residence at Sanggar O, we introduced Rachel to our colleagues at Padepoken Mahagenta music studio nearby. Mas Uyung invited Rachel not only to record but also perform live on Saturday night. Rachel headlined, crooning famous jazz numbers, such as Summertime. She also did two improvised performances with Liswati and Mas Busro.
