MEMORIES OF LAKE TOBA, THE LAND OF MY PEOPLE, FROM 10 YEARS AGO NOW

MEMORIES OF LAKE TOBA, THE LAND OF MY PEOPLE, FROM 10 YEARS AGO NOW

YOU CAN TAKE ME AWAY FROM THE BATAK LAND, BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE BATAK LAND AWAY FROM ME.

Welcome to the land of the Kings, where music and dances are apart of our lives. Welcome to Lake Toba, North Sumatra, Indonesia. HORAS….HORAS…HORAS.

This video was captured 10 years ago now, in Simanindo, Samosir Island, where I did part of my early research on the decline of Ulos, the Batak Traditional textiles.

A lovely memory to treasure, that I have gone through some amazing journey in my life, a journey where I met people, and make their needs more important than mine. I hope to do this for the rest of my life.
