Karinding is a traditional Sundanese (West Java – Indonesia) music instrument made of bamboo. It is placed between two lips, then one end beaten with a finger, so that the vibrations occur in the middle. And then the rhythm of the music Karinding determined by the movement of the tongue and lips, which became the media echo reflector Karinding vibration. It’s voice sound like a big frog in the middle of rice fields.

This child was sleeping deeply when his parents were waiting for his cleft lip surgery. I took this picture when I took part in the social acitivity organized by Lions Club Bandung Lestary Indonesia at Sukabumi. We managed to help 34 children to have cleft lip surgery that day. It was an amazing moment for me.
