These are some clips from the Roda Roda Soundsystem project in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 2009.
Roda Roda Soundsystem as a collective began in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 2009. Their method of work is unified by their interest in an ethnomusicological approach to sound, pragmatic visual aesthetics, and an appreciation of modes of interaction and interchange that challenge western ideas of participation within a culture.
While in Yogyakarta for the South Project we were taken by the bicycle culture and the locals ability to push the limits of what is in fact a frame on two wheels. We quickly looked past this resourcefulness as a spectacle and saw the potential for these vehicles as inclusive platforms through which to engage in active cultural exchange with the local community and local artists.
