Musicians all over the world have always created style statements. Be it long hair, weird tattoos, piercings and/or use of metal accessories. Well, today’s street musicians are no different. While I was exploring Jakarta, I dropped by Taman Suropati one morning to see these street musicians teach music to young kids.
This was also the time when I got to see and meet these street musicians. Not only did they play good music, but they also looked the part. One of them had such beautiful long straight hair that even girls would feel proud of it. And I met one more guy who not only had long hair, but had also painstakingly braided it to such extents that he can never remove the braids but cut it in case he wanted his natural hair back.
Both these street musicians were friends. While one played the guitar, the other was a vocalist and between the two they compiled some great songs. It was a pleasure to know both of them and I hope to see and meet such special street musicians in Jakarta and all over the world.
