Launch of 'Songs from the Heart of Kupang'

Join us at the launch of 'Songs from the Heart of Kupang'


Dear friends,

Join us to celebrate friendships and artistic collaborations for good at the launch of the music album, ‘Songs from the Heart of Kupang’, on Saturday, 14 October 2017. 

In 2016, Indonesian and Singaporean artists worked together to introduce arts-based activities into the educational programme of the Roslin Orphanage in Kupang, Indonesia. They also held a series of train-the-trainer workshops to enable caregivers at the Roslin Orphanage to continue the programme for future residents.

Two artists - Indonesian jazz singer Nita Aartsen and Singaporean composer Clement Chow – are taking the project a step further with ‘Songs from the Heart of Kupang’. The duo wrote and composed music inspired by their interactions with the residents of the Roslin Orphanage, and produced a music album featuring the voices of residents of the Roslin Orphanage with contributions from international musicians.

The launch of this music album will be held at Paviliun 28 in Jakarta, Indonesia and all proceeds from the sale of the music album will go to the Roslin Orphanage.
