Menjadi by Senyawa.
Unfortunately, I missed seeing this duo from Java the last time they were through San Francisco.
Vocals, Stringed Instruments, and percussion. The vocal strategies are not dissimilar to those Atilla Cshihar uses in SUNN O))), very low frequency. The various long stringed instruments deployed in an eclectic manner, bowed and plucked, droning and dancing. The percussion deep and polyrhythmic.
They’ve gotten a reputation for synthesizing the traditions of Indonesian music with modern experimental music, which is exactly what you find on this release.
Enjoyable and interesting. I hope that I can manage leaving the house the next time they are in town.
