Red volcanoes, black musics

From Japan to Indonesia  (Java and Bali) -where their density is the highest in the world- to the Philippines, going on the Far East also means meeting friendly people that gather on these lands of volcanic ashes that allow three crops of rice a year.
    Whether they are Muslims, Catholics or Hindus, they all live close to these mountains called volcanoes (gunung in Indonesian) that were thought to have been turned into dragons.
