    A1 Matrix No.: 27779 Artist: Miss Riboet Title: Krontjong Boeroeng Koentoel B1 Matrix No.: 27823 Artist: Miss Riboet Title: Sambas Pontiansk Miss Riboet was a multi-talented performer from the Dutch East Indies. Although she began her recording career in Batavia (now Jakarta), her records were very popular in Southeast Asia and she toured extensively throughout the region with her troupe of supporting artists. In a 1933 charity performance at the Victoria Theatre, Miss Riboet demonstrated her versatility by acting in a Javanese drama, singing with her troupe, and performing a Balinese ceremonial dance. The show was attended by many Europeans, Malays and Chinese, and was very well-received.
