Time flies at farmers market-style shopping complex Pasar Modern (Pasmod) BSD in South Tangerang.
Motorbike drivers rush to deliver their customers’ orders. Housewives carry foldable shopping carts and dads hold their little ones on grocery runs. White-collar employees stop by for a quick and energizing breakfast.
The chaotic, yet exuberant daily routine that feeds life into the fully functional pasar (market) was brought to a halt one Wednesday morning. What used to be the market’s regular audio — white noise — was taken over by the sound of a dynamic bassline met with playful melodious trombone and swingy drums, while the guitar’s rhythmic chords brought the instruments into harmony.
