Description

The Sambasunda Quintet create music of ethereal beauty centred on the kacapi, a traditional boat-shaped zither. Spacious and stripped down, deeply rooted in tradition, yet highly inventive - allow the sounds of Java to transport you to the Indonesian archipelago and beyond. Sambasunda apply urban energy to the multifarious traditional music of the Indonesian archipelago with extraordinary results. The haunting and evocative sounds of the kacapi perfectly accompanies the songs of displacement, longing and melancholy. They have created an album which reflects the enduring classical tradition of Sundanese music whilst creating something fresh, modern and original - full of explosive energy and seductive sweetness, this is a groundbreaking approach to the traditional music of West Java.
