Indonesia and Papua New Guinea

The next free Cultural Thursday program at Central Lakes College, Brainerd will be a musical journey through the islands of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea at noon on Nov. 4 in the Lecture Hall (E 354) of the Brainerd campus. Scheduled presenters for the 50-minute public program are Indonesians Jaka Mahendra, Muraty Harsono (left), Djamaluddin Paratmadi, and Ana Marliana Saber, along with Bud, Marlys, and Lori-Beth Larsen, who have worked in both Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Lori-Beth Larsen, an English instructor at CLC, was raised in Papua New Guinea. Bud Larsen will offer sound samples from a collection of many musical instruments that includes those from Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. “We’ll discuss the social, cultural, religious, political influences on music from this incredibly diverse area of the world,” said Lori-Beth Larsen. The program is sponsored by the Resource Center for Cultures and Languages of the Americas (RCCLA) at Central Lakes College.
