Traditional Indonesian Musicians at Malioboro, Yogyakarta

I was walking at night around Malioboro, Yogyakarta, looking for something to eat, some batik to buy :)
and from afar I can hear music being played, it just felt so familiar, so right.
so I kept on walking and there they were, Malioboro musicians, they brought such traditional festivity, yes, on the side of the road.
It totally created a wonderful atmosphere in the surrounding area, people stopped walking and stood there to enjoy the music.
Locals and tourists alike, we were all mesmerized by the soothing sound :)
As they were jamming, a delman (traditional horse carriage) and a becak (rickshaw) passed by. Perfect :)
I'd say you have to try sitting in a delman or a rickshaw to truly experience Yogjakarta :)
Anyway.....Enjoy the music :)
