    Global Voices [#521] Street Ballad: A Jakarta Story Titi Juwariyah, 27, is a street singer in Jakarta, Indonesia. She leads a challenging, conflicted life - from her migration to Jakarta as a lost teen from the Java countryside to her heartfelt quest for identity and acceptance in her adopted city.
    Armed with just a battered guitar, a soulful voice, and a desire for a better life, Titi composes catchy folk tunes to entertain passengers on Jakarta's teeming buses. She dreams of making a career in music but is overwhelmed by the pressures of supporting her troubled family.
    When personal crisis strikes, Titi finds herself alone and on the edge of despair. An emotional journey to see her ailing parents in their remote countryside village provides Titi with important perspective and new determination to turn her life around.
    Back on the streets of Jakarta, Titi embarks on a brave new quest for independence and legitimacy. But in the process of chasing that dream, she stands to lose the very thing that is closest to her heart.

    Pride & Joy Filmmaker Joe York spotlights the tradition-bearers of Southern foodways while presenting intimate portraits of men and women who grow, prepare, and serve Southern food and drink. Along the way, he asks and those tradition-bearers answer important questions about American culinary culture. Travelling from Virginia to Texas and ten states in between, he examines themes related to foodways, sense of place, civil rights, gender, family dynamics, and diversity in the modern American South. What do foodways tell us about what it means to be a Southerner? How and why do traditional foodways endure? As America's ethnic and racial make-up shifts, how do regional foodways change? A diverse and eclectic cast of characters populates Pride & Joy. Farmer and novelist Dori Sanders makes mouths water with her luscious peaches. Dairyman Earl Cruze has unlocked the secret of a lasting marriage by way of buttermilk. The Hardy Family argues that boiled green peanuts are a world-class delicacy. These are just three of the farmers, artisans, and cooks whose stories offer insights on the South's complex history and bright future. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
