This movie gives you a glimpse of what Jakarta is like from the viewpoint of the “Buskers” who are musicians performing on street corners and buses. This is one of those rare gems in film making that transport you into the lives of these people and leaves you with admiration for all of them and how they struggle to make a living, while finding meaning. Highest recommendation ♥♥♥♥

Boni, Ho & Titi are three gifted, charismatic street musicians in Jakarta. JALANAN follows these young marginalized musicians and their never before seen sub-culture, while also painting a striking, moody and intimate portrait of Indonesia’s frenzied capital city.
