Chris Priyonugroho, Alvin Yunata, David Tarigan, Toma Avianda, Dian Wulandari, Mayumi Haryoto and Norman Illyas Rumahorbo launched the website of the Irama Nusantara community on Independence Day, August 17, last year.

I read about it from Twitter. One day I watched Mayumi’s presentation in Pecha Kucha and got excited. Indonesia’s has a big problem in music history’s archive. Remember Lokananta Studio’s sad story?

David showed dozens of Indonesia’s rare vinyls for the photo shoot props.

The Irama Nusantara team is hilarious 😀 *insert old school jokes
