Filastine & Nova Urban Indonesia
08 12 '17 - 20:30
The American drummer, composer, producer and videographer Grey Filastine founded Filastine in 2004 with the Javanese singer and designer, Nova Ruth. Grey’s career began with Infernal Noise Design, a guerrilla street orchestra that often played during mass demonstrations against the rich and powerful. Grey leads a nomadic existence, traveling the world in search of new sounds and rhythms.
During one of his trips, he met Nova Ruth, one half of the Indonesian rap group Twin Sista, and they have been playing together ever since. Ruth has had a wide and varied musical career: at a young age she sang gospel, recited verses from the Quran in mosques and played traditional gamelan. As a duo, Filastine remains loyal to Grey’s militant past with albums entitled Loot, Dirty Bomb and Burn It.
