Koeslin Bamboo Flores​

Koeslin Bamboo Flores

Koeslin Bamboo Flores was established on October 10, 2014, consisting of 4 women and 6 men. The initial activity was to preserve traditional bamboo music and flute. On April 17, 2015, the bamboo instrument Bombardom, which had been missing for about 35 years, began to sound again to welcome guests of the Indonesian Ecotourism Foundation (Indecon) in Tololela Village. It started with the idea of promoting Tololela Traditional Village as a new tourist attraction through a Traditional Inflatable Music Performance to get a MURI record. This event was supported by people from 31 traditional houses in Tololela village; and worked together to produce 1,085 pieces of Bombardom in a day.

Finally, various innovations continued to be carried out by this community until it succeeded in breaking the MURI Record for the category of the Most Blowers of Traditional Wind Instruments with 1,000 participants on September 18, 2015, at the Tololela Traditional Village, Manubhara Village, Inerie District. Since then my mind has been 90% focused on bamboo. I started trying to make various crafts made from bamboo, which is one of the village’s abundant potentials.
