BALINAISESCHAHTATIONS: Kabar Campuran!
Based in France, this is a sometime project that mixes Gamelan and Western instruments, both electric and acoustic, building on the vocabularies of jazz, rock, traditional Gamelan and noise improvisation. Don Cherry and various groups of young Indonesians largely unknown here aside, it’s a combination seldom attempted. This lot – 16 of them - make a pretty good stab at it. Good compositions, interesting rhythms, mobile arrangements and a variety of approaches. Worth your time.
