(Photograph) - Music behind bars: Inmates at HMP Brixton play Indonesian gamelan percussion music as part of the "Good Vibrations " prison project. It was the second time project staff had come to the prison, where they ran a week-long course teaching inmates to play traditional Indonesian instruments including exotic gongs and xylophones. At the end of the week, participants gave a concert for fellow inmates and prison staff. Photograph by ROBIN HAMMOND
