This Thursday in Berlin, Morphine present the first in a series of five events at Berghain exploring the more leftfield, raw and unconventional sounds from Indonesia.
‘Raung Raya’ is produced in collaboration with Europalia International Arts Festival and Rabih Beaini, head honcho of Morphine Records and more commonly know for his production alias Morphosis. The focus of ‘Raung Raya’ is to showcase an encompassing selection of diversity in Indonesian music.
The series of events feature Java based experimental band Senyawa, electronic music pioneer Otto Sidharta, Sundanese hardcore sound of Karinding Attack, the collaborative work around Tarawangsa “the sacred music of Sunda” and the magical singing of Ata Ratu, plus Iwan Gunawan’s specially built Bamboo Gamelan and Al Suwardi’s incredible contemporary Ensemble.
