Description:Bradley McDonnell and Anton Supriyadi recorded Armawati, Indanpitriyani, and Nizarnayati at Armawati's house. This was a conversation between the three. It appears that Armawati's husband (Iswahadi) sat outside of the purview of the camera. He doesn't appear to speak because he has suffered a stroke. There were also some guests (Hairul and his wife from Tanung Betuah, but who now live in Bengkulu) who came into the recording about halfway through recording session. Video recorded on Canon XA-30, audio recorded in two ways: (i) Tascam DR-60 with an Audio Technica Stereo Microphone and (ii) Marantz PMD-561 with two SM-35 headset microphones.
