Album Notes
My father was born in Ambon, Maluku. He was raised in a poor family. His father died when he was 9th. His mother worked as a lady who washed people’s clothes. My father helped his family by working as newspaper man or fisher man, or helping his older brother to take some heavy stuffs from the port when ship coming in.

He went to Jakarta to study. He got scholarship for that. He was then working in a low level job until he finished his university and got a better position because of that. He retired as a great man. Not only in a position wise but his impact to people around him. Helping people everywhere all over the world, with his love. I admire him. Many admire him. Many came to his funeral, and shared of how my father impacted their lives.

I dedicate these songs for him. May you support my work as my dad always to do, which is to help people around him.

Three songs directly for him: Merindumu ( To miss you), Terima kasih Daddy ( Thank You Daddy), and Kusendiri ( from an Ambonese (Maluku capital city, folk song, Ole Sio).

The song, Pengampunan (Forgiveness), was specially written by my brother Joe Jacobs and we both work together to make it best according to our standard. Thanks Joe. It was a great song.

I love my father so much, but I love my mom too. They both love me in a special way. They taught me two important things: Giving and Praying. For this, I will always remember him.

Thanks to Jesus for letting me do this. And to my wife too. For my son: Remember, we always love you.

Maluku may not be familiar for you. It s a land with a thousand islands. Thousands of Maluku people were moved to Holland in 1950s. They lived there until now, and they are the sons of Maluku. Banda was also one of the island of Maluku, that was traded by the English to get Dutchmen to get the New Amsterdam which is New York now. Our people famous for their music. It has a special beats which I heard maybe similar to South Africa, however ours have slower beats. Pierre Jacobs Music was not a pure Maluku Music. The music has been mixed together with places where I have been in my life and the music that influenced me heavily.

I want to admit that it is not a perfect music that you can compare with many great musicians, but I assure you one thing, that they are not made just for the sake of making it. They are there not by coincidence. May God bless your soul, and may the music inspires you.
