Pak Mohari - The Beggar who was a Virtuoso

Did you ever heard about Pak Mohari?

I guess not. Yet he is famous ... among the cars that stop here on the road to Solo.
Because he is a virtuoso.

Blind, he is also a beggar, playing his virtuosity in the corner of a small restaurant for little money.
I was impressed by his play. Javanese music is such that each part seems so different, but all together, it creates that particular tune ….
So Pak Mohali is probably one of the last Javanese culture holders. He should be protected, treated with care and respect.

But he’s not. He’s just a beggar…

By The Way, I had the honor to shake his hand and talk a little with him.
You who probabely took this road to Solo one day, did you ?
