The concept behind Uwalmassa is the fusion of the international arts - both traditional and modern - that are translated through an Indonesian lens. In this case, the consciousness towards the perpetual exchange between the world’s heritage serves as a motivation to place Indonesian arts in a global context. UWalmassa acknowledges that the Indonesian identity is not something that is diminishing, but rather in need to be reconstructed - as it is still subject to reinterpretation. However, such perception does not justify the means to erase existing cultural grounds. Instead, it is an incentive to continue to build upon those pre-existing foundations.
Elaborate production techniques and non-conventional composition methods are of the highest value behind the music of Uwalmassa. By incorporating elements from a broad musical spectrum, Uwalmassa aims to convey a relevant narrative within the contemporary climate. Other than preserving, Uwalmassa takes on the initiative in bringing Indonesian arts and culture into a more explorative and imaginative field of work. Simultaneously, this notion opens up the path into reviving a more thorough research on the otherwise lost knowledge and history. Uwalmassa takes a firm stand in challenging the shallow and narrow thought process towards understanding the vastness that is Indonesia.
