I have been a member of DS since 2009. I joined on a fluke. I went to a rehearsal of Sekar Jaya in a house in the hills near Berkeley. It was a great experience, so I came back to NY and looked around for a group. Coincidentally, DS had an open rehearsal the following morning!
I went to the demo and stuck around for the rehearsal. I ended up joining the group and performing in one of the highlights of my musical life – a performance on the main stage at the 2010 PKB performances in Bali! It is a memory I will always cherish. The people that join DS are special – very kind, very serious and very fun! It is always a pleasure to play in DS. I am happy to have had the opportunity to have them at Queens College for the past 5 years.
