2012 Java Jazz Festival - Dave Koz #8
A very nice ending to a wonderful night. A street band called "Lima Tujuh Koustik" (57 Coustic) made up of five young street boys from Bandung who were taken in by a welfare group to teach them music in exchange for learning reading, writing and math, were spotted playing one of Dave's song on the Bandung streets by a friend of Dave. She video'ed their street performance and sent it on to Dave, who in turn invited them to perform with him live, on the Java Jazz Festival stage! The boys did great! And it was magnanimous of Dave to share the stage and give these street boys a one in a lifetime starting opportunity to succeed towards a better life.
