Rockin Ramona

By Hans Heijnen

A feature length documentary about the history of Indo Rock. Nominated in 1991 for the Golden Calf. Broadcast by NOS television.
The first sounds of Rock&Roll produced in Holland was by "Indos", the Dutch-Indonesians who, after they fled their homeland Indonesia when it became independent of Holland, built a new life for themselves in Holland.

Through culture clashes, affinity with black-American guitar-orientated music and their 'Asian touch', a unique sound developed, that grow into the best Europe had to offer. The Indo-rockbands played loud, rough and with speed, but also with a lot of sensitivity.

With: The Tielman Brothers, Javelins, Crazy Rockers, Black Dynamites and Black Magic.
