Musicians on Java - Antique Photograph

Four Javanese Musicians holding their instruments, posing in a photo studio round the year 1870-80, most likely on Java, Indonesia. The man on the left is playing a traditional Javanese suling (flute) while the man in the center is holding a rebab (bowed string instrument similar to Chinese erhu or Arab jawza.). The photograph is of utmost rarity, and a real collectors item for those interested in early photography in Indonesia.
