Yogyakarta’s Senyawa rough up traditional Javanese music with a punk attitude and avant-garde aesthetic. The band’s neo-tribalist sounds veer from twisted folk to experimental metal. Rully Shubara’s extended vocal techniques alternate between bloodcurdling screams, manic throat singing and choirboy incantations, while Wukir Suryadi is mesmerising on his handcrafted “Bamboo Spear”. This stringed invention allows for both rhythmic percussion and melodic bowing and plucking, creating a fusion of sound that is both traditionally Indonesian and incredibly progressive.

“A rock-star-like frenzy that was virtuosic and compelling.” Sydney Outsider
