Led by Pak Nardus & his son Nikolas to the left & Armin to the right … & supported by a chorus of family & friends.   Recorded at night during a 3 day ceremony for Kampung Beiboso near Bajawa hill town in Flores.

The ceremony, involving the sacrifice of 128 pigs & 6 buffalo (cut up & cooked on the spot!), is unlikely to be repeated for 50 to 100 years as they are so expensive.   Apart from the locals …several thousand people from surrounding villages attended the ceremony.

The traditional acappela singing was performed privately in some kampung houses.
