Pasundan dancers Sekar Sosronegoro and Casey Lee, a UCLA alumna, performed a traditional Sundanese dance for the Fowler Museum audience Sunday. The Indonesian outfits have two parts: a top piece called a kebaya and a lower piece called a sarong.

Haryl Bhaniko gave samples of Tambling coffee at the Fowler Museum’s Indonesian culture event on Sunday. The coffee grows wild within the Sumatra forest without any fertilizer or farming. Indonesian farmers walk through the forest and hand-pick the beans.
Butet Tobing, Suzanna Soedarmo and Liesda Howell (left to right) wore their own Batik designs to the event Sunday, which they brought from their home country of Indonesia.
Batik designs are native to the islands of Indonesia. Los Angeles-based batik designer Sizzy Matindas handmakes each of her cloth designs through traditional batik practices.
Batik artist Ferril Nawir creates batik scarves with beeswax and fiber dyes. He also produces batik wood prints by ironing and steaming wax designs on wood.
