Tarawangsa is a refined, minimalist musical tradition from Sunda. It is performed on two stringed instruments that are unique to the region and never played separately: the tarawangsa, a kind of two-stringed violin played vertically, and the jentreng, a seven-stringed zither. Tarawangsa is an extremely rare musical tradition, only played in a handful of Javanese villages during ancient animistic ceremonies linked to the spirits, fertility and agriculture.

With his grainy and imaginative analogue techno beats, DJ and producer Rabih Beaini (aka Morphosis) is a world authority on avant-garde electronic music. At the invitation of EUROPALIA, he spent two weeks in residence at Bandung in order to work with the Tarawangsawelas duo. By adding a subtle electronic layer, they highlight the huge fragility and trancelike effect of tarawangsa. Discover the result in a new album and during concerts.
