Aural Archipelago is the multimedia ethnographic project of Palmer Keen, an American ethnomusicologist based in Bandung, Java. It is considered to be the most extensive study of traditional Indonesian music ever undertaken, exploring the place of music, rituals and traditions in 21st century Indonesia. Palmer Keen invites you to discover three of these unique traditions rarely heard outside their region.
Armed with a jungga, a four-stringed lute that she built with her own hands, Ata Ratu improvises poetic refrains in a voice that has made her famous on the Island of Sumba.
Thambunesia is a virtuoso of the sape, the enormous traditional lute of Kalimantan. The gentle hum that is typical of Dayak music serves as the foundation on which he builds an expressive universe.
For the first time in Europe, Turikale presents the batti-batti of Selayar. A must during weddings, this music mixes improvised dialogue with the sound of rebana drums and gambus lutes.More info on www.auralarchipelago.com
