Rooftop Trombone in the Age of Covid-19

When Malaysia began its Movement Control Order (lockdown) on 18 March 2020, Don Bowyer committed to streaming live music and bad jokes at 5pm everyday until the lockdown is lifted. Initially streamed through his Facebook page, these videos are now available as a Playlist on YouTube and collected together below on this page.

Dean of the School of Arts at Sunway University in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bowyer is an American who has been in Malaysia for more than three years.
