My name is Kakek Pucang. I'm 80 years old. My life has been filled with music. I play an instrument called Rindik. I make dance music. My parents always wanted me to be a musician. I always liked that. I wake up at 5 in the morning. First, I go to my rice field, then I feed my cows, and then I come to the restaurant that I play music. I went only to primary school because there were no other schools in our town. I got married in 1965, and I have a son and a daughter. When I was a child, I played music for the Indonesian president. I will never forget that memory. We have a musical group that consists of 5 people. Sometimes, we get invited to play at the hotels. It makes me so happy because I can still work and I'm still living my life. My father couldn't see and hear that much when he was at my age. I believe that I owe my healthiness to music.
