The children played Angklung, one of traditional musical instrument from Indonesia. It is originally played by Sundanese People from West Java, but now has already more popular and played by many Indonesian. There were 2 (two) songs that played, “Jali-jali” and “Bengawan Solo. “Jali-jali” is a rhyme with a joyous music about being a happy and easygoing person. “Bengawan Solo” tells about the Solo River, which flows through central and eastern Java, Indonesia and is the island’s longest river. The song describes the legendary river in a poetic and nostalgic way that it is surrounded by mountains; its sources are near the city of Surakarta, that it ends in the sea, and that the merchants use it for many years.
