The Sounds of Sunda

Friday, October 04, 2013

Sunda is the western portion of the island of Java, in Indonesia. For this New Sounds, listen to the music from both that region and from western bands like Tribecastan, the Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan of Canada, from Sabah Habas Mustapha, a member of London group 3 Mustaphas 3, and much more.  Hear music by Sasha Bogdanowitsch written for the group Pusaka Sunda.  The work, “If There Be Rivers, All Will Blossom,” is for Gamelan Degung, the chamber-sized gamelan ensemble which usually features the suling (flute), and is about the importance of keeping faith in life, and maintaining creativity in hardship.
