“Sounds of origin” is a mosaic of stories about the power of survival in difficult circumstances, the roots of the portrayed people and the search for their identity, interspersed with (swinging) music and never-before-seen archival material of both musical performances and the colonial era of Netherlands East Indies. Hetty Naaijkens - Retel Helmrich shows the audience how Dutch –Indo musicians managed to assimilate (with a hint of nostalgia) and how they changed the Dutch musical landscape and far beyond, without even knowing it.
