Boi Akih, the music group around singer Monica Akihary, is making fame in Europe. "In their combination of European, Indian and Indonesian culture on the one hand, and jazz on the other, Boi Akih has a unique sound, a color not to be copied within the actual musical landscape", wrote the French press. "With her voice Monica Akihary sublimizes and charmes the ethnic-jazz.". Singer Monica Akihary is accompanied by Ernst Reijseger op violoncel, Sandip Batthacharya on tabla en Niels Brouwer on guitar.
