@12bar I'm not actually good at introducing myself, lol. I'll try tho, I currently live in Jakarta, Indonesia. There *might be* a *slight* chance of me continuing my computer science study abroad, might be australia, england, germany or philliphines. Right now, I'm listening to Albert Collins (again haha), really love that "Mr. Collins, Mr. Collins" tune.
Some bluesman/woman I listened to (sorted by alphabet):
-Ginda and The White Flowers - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9Cx4pu4pdQ

That's a pretty fine list of bluesman/women though as you thought the Indonesian ones were not familiar. Interesting links you've made - and some really good music. There's so many good blues players around the world!
Followed you back on Soundcloud.
Look forward to hearing more from you on 12bar.
@12bar there's more than those guys and sadly the label companies, music media and atmosphere in my country *seems* to be controlled by some people. :( Lots of good talents here just gone indie or in some cases the band just stop playing . But that's just my opinion though
Artists are forced into staying commercial and not moving into more interesting musical areas that they want to explore.
Many great talents with no official media coverage. At least they have YouTube.
