Folk and Pop Sounds of Sumatra, Vol. 1

The equator runs through only ten countries on earth and I bet that you cannot name them all without consulting a map. Indonesia is one of them and the only nation in Asia with the equatorial stripe impaling it. There are so many different cultures spread-out on these islands, that it would take several lifetimes to experience them all properly. Within this umbrella of diversity is one of the world's richest and most dazzling sound museums. Sumatra is the northwestern entry point to the great archipelago. It is a large island approximately the size of California. There are jungles, mountains, swamps, various forms of myths and folklore, hustlers, Padang Food, Tigers, the Durian, dozens of cultures and languages, and more music than you've ever been allowed to hear. The selections on this CD are a combination of droning beat pop, pseudo-gypsy songs, jungle folk trance, and other improbable traditional and hybrid styles heard by only a handful of outsiders. These recordings are from old cassette tapes received as gifts, in trade, or purchased from sources in Sumatra in 1989. Some of the tapes are unmarked with the artists unknown, yet all of them are decaying documents of various sound quality containing some of the most eccentric artifacts ever uncovered from this fascinating island.

Ermy Kullit - Di Hatiku (NEW: 2007)

Blackmamba says:
Finally it's here. Tante Ermy Kullit kembali lagi dgn album baru. Album kolaborasinya dgn Jopie Item ini bakal ngobatin kerinduan penggemar2 Ermy, sekaligus merangkul penggemar2 baru yang masih berusia muda. Kalau ada yg mengira album ini bakalan "old style" alias jadul spt lagu2nya tante Ermy yg dulu pasti kecele. Gw sebut ini modernized vintage. Style klasiknya tante Ermy ga ilang, dalam artian dia masih mempertahankan gaya menyanyinya yang udah jadi trademark sekian puluh tahun, tapi dgn aransemen yang segar, yg bisa masuk ke kalangan pendengar yg lebih muda. Aransemennya asik bgt, meskipun bossa tetap jadi primadona, tapi improvisasi2 didalamnya ngejazz bgt, tanpa harus ribet. This is wonderful. Mau yg demen tante Ermy, mau yg belom kenal, mau idup mati di bossa atau termasuk "so what gitu lowh" ama bossa, ini gw rekomen bener2. Really fresh, really nice, a modernized vintage yang sgt enjoyable. Semangat dan kegembiraan tante Ermy untuk kembali tampil ke permukaan juga kerasa bgt di lagu2nya. Best cut gw ? Bila Angin 'kan mendengarnya yg sweet n smooth bossa, Aku Ini Punya Siapa, Masih Ada atau Keraguan-nya Dian PP. atau Citra nya Bimbo.. Nice... nice...

ps: kalau suka albumnya, n sanggup beli, silakan beli.. ga rugi kok, biarpun harganya agak2 tinggi, sekitar 80 ribuan. :)

Kesan pertama yang menganggap sosok penyanyi ini adalah biasa aja. Namun, setelah menyimak lirik-lirik yang dilantunkannya dalam album ini, kita akan percaya bahwa Aura mempunyai kemampuan berolah vokal.
Album Smooth Jazzy yg keluar tahun 2006 ini,menjadi gambaran nyata untuk pencinta musik bahwa ‘aura’nya selalu hadir dalam setiap lagu. Musik jazz yang dipilihnya dalam menapaki kehidupan bermusiknya adalah pilihan yang tepat untuk jenis vokalnya.And it's easy listening.....
( FYI,lagu2 di album ini emang pake bhs inggris,but ini penyanyi indo lho... )

Sambasunda - Rhytmnical Of Sundanese People

About Sambasunda:
Kami adalah kelompok musik tradisi, kreasi, dan kontemporer yang garapan-garapannya mengakar pada seni tradisi Indonesia, berdomisili di kota Bandung. Aktivitas kami mencakup produksi rekaman, pelatihan, pertunjukan serta konservasi musik tradisi. Memang, ruang lingkup aktivitas kami lebih banyak menampilkan karya musikal. Namun tidak hanya itu, kami sering pula melibatkan garapan-garapan seni pertunjukan lain, seperti tari dan teater.

Nama Sambasunda mulai diperkenalkan pada tahun 1998. Semuanya berawal dari awal 1990 dengan nama berdirinya "PRAWA". Kemudian pada tahun 1997 nama "PRAWA" ini diganti menjadi CBMW. Nama ini terus dipakai hingga beberapa saat setelah diluncurkanya album perdana yang bertema "Rhytmical in Sundanese People". Sejak dalam album itu terdapat sebuah lagu yang berjudul Sambasunda, kami merasa cocok dengan kata itu sehingga sampai saat ini nama Sambasunda terus dipakai sebagai identitas.

Latar belakang para awak Sambasunda sangat mempengaruhi seluruh orientasi garapan. Kemampuan kesenimanannya tidak hanya dilatarbelakangi pendidikan tradisi, tapi juga ditunjang oleh pendidikan akademis di beberapa Perguruan Tinggi Seni di Indonesia.

Sambasunda telah beberapa kali tampil dalam berbagai event dalam dan luar negeri, diantaranya tercatat sebagai Best Performance pada Multi Cultural Of Asian Music Festival di Colombo Sri Lanka pada tahun 1999. Menjelang pergantian tahun 2000-2001 ini, di samping telah melakukan berbagai kegiatan pentas di dalam dan luar negeri, kami pun telah menghasilkan dua album baru yang berjudul "Takbir dan Shalawat" serta "Magic Skin Of Drums".

Program kami pada tahun ini, selain akan membuat album-album baru juga saat ini kami sedang dalam proses persiapan untuk tour keliling kota-kota di pulau Jawa. Masih di tahun ini, kami juga merencanakan akan bertandang ke beberapa negara seperti Malaysia, Jerman, Belanda serta Amerika Serikat.

Tentang konteks Sambasunda
Sebagian banyak orang mempersepsikan bahwa nama Sambasunda lebih identik dengan musik latin. Kata Sambasunda lebih dipopulerkan dengan sebutan 'Samba', kini kemudian timbul pertanyaan dengan gandengan kata 'Samba' dan 'Sunda'.

Sebenarnya nama Sambasunda diambil dari akronim 'Samba' dan 'Sunda'. Samba dalam ruang lingkup budaya Cirebon mempunyai pengertian remaja yang sedang menuju masa 'puber'. Sedangkan nama 'Sunda' diambil dari nama 'wilayah etnis' yang terdapat di pulau Jawa, tepatnya di wilayah Jawa Barat. Jadi hakikat Sambasunda diartikan sebagai generasi muda yang penuh semangat moril dalam mengembangkan nilai luhur seni budaya Indonesia. Kemudian dalam salah satu repertoar yang tergabung dalam album "Rhytmical in Sundanese People", nama Sambasunda kami hadirkan dalam bentuk repertoar lagu.

Dalam proses perjalanan musikalnya, kami telah semakin mantap dalam konsep-konsep kolaborasi. Ini banyak terjadi tatkala lontaran album-album baru kami banyak mencerminkan perpaduan instrumen musik dari berbagai etnis yang berbeda, seperti Bali, Sumatra, India, Africa, Finlandia, dan lain-lain, pendeknya kami sedang berupaya menuju suatu orientasi musik yang sedang populer saat ini dengan istilah "World Music".

Jubing Kristianto - Hujan Fantasy [2008]

"Hujan Fantasy" adalah album solo gitar kedua dari Jubing Kristianto. Seperti album pertama (Becak Fantasy), album yang kedua ini juga memilili konsep tidak jauh berbeda, yakni memasyarakatkan keindahan seni bermain gitar akustik tunggal. Kelebihannya adalah ragam style musik yang lebih luas, dan jumlah lagu yang lebih banyak.

Aku Cinta Dia dipilih menjadi pembuka album karena kualitas musik yang lincah dan ritmis. Kemeriahan aransemen lagu yang diipopulerkan almarhum Chrisye ini tetap terasa kendati hanya dimainkan dengan satu gitar akustik.

Nuansa musik Timur-Tengah amat terasa dalam Bengong Jeumpa sebuah lagu tradisional dari Aceh. Berbagai pola ritmik dan teknik unik dalam memainkan gitar akustik bisa dinikmati dalam aransemen yang satu ini tanpa mengurangi keindahan lagunya.

Bagi yang menyukai dentingan melodi gitar klasik yang romantis, Once Upon a Rainy Day tentu menyenangkan untuk didengar. Lagu slow bermelodi manis ini sekaligus menjadi prelude bagi lagu berikutnya, Hujan Fantasy. Menggunakan tema pendek dari lagu "Hujan" ciptaan Ibu Sud, Jubing menciptakan komposisi bernuansa simfonik dengan berbagai suasana dan style musik yang terpadu harmonis. Lagu ini sekaligus menjadi lagu jagoan dan menjadi judul album .

Pada lagu berikutnya, Bohemian Rhapsody, Jubing melakukan proses pembalikan, yakni sebuah komposisi untuk band, orkestra, dan paduan suara, dimampatkan sebegitu rupa hingga bisa dimainkan hanya dengan satu gitar. Tidak semegah aslinya memang, namun menjadi sangat menarik karena segala elemen yang menjadi ciri mahakarya grup Queen ini bisa terwakili dalam enam senar saja.

Lagu kocak Madu dan Racun yang pernah sangat populer di tahun 80-an, dimainkan Jubing sekocak aslinya dengan gaya yang unik. Bisa dibilang mirip blasteran reggae dan dangdut.

Berturut-turut kemudian adalah Astaga yang pernah dipopulerkan Ruth Sahanaya serta Every Breath you Take dari Sting. Kedua lagu ini dipilih untuk mewakili genre musik-musik pop Indonesia dan Barat Begitu juga dengan pemilihan I Wanna Hold Your Hand dari Beatles, serta Ye Liang Tai Wo Ti Sien dari Teresa Teng. Aransemen pada lagu-lagu ini tidak banyak mengubah harmoni aslinya untuk mempertahankan karakter musik pop. Khusus Ye Liang Tai dibuatkan dua versi, selain yang solo gitar, juga ada duet gitar dengan irama yang lebih nge-beat.

Nomor duet lainnya adalah Gundul-gundul Pacul yang merupakan rekaman live show dari konser Jubing di Mal Ambarukmo Plaza tahun 2007 yang disaksikan lebih dari 1.000 penonton. Dalam lagu ini, hadir bintang tamu pakar penabuh kendang dari Solo, Suryadi "Plenthe" yang meramaikan permainan gitar Jubing. "Duel" seru gitar dan kendang ini mendapat sambutan amat meriah dari penonton (rekaman videonya bisa dilihat di )

Untuk mewakili genre dangdut, Jubing menghadirkan Pengalaman Pertama karya A. Rafiq. Lagu ini diaransemen khusus dengan tiga gitar serta perkusi oleh Suryadi "Plenthe".

Three Oriental Songs yang berisi tiga lagu pendek --Moonrise, Windbells, Rickshaw-- adalah karya pribadi Jubing untuk solo gitar. Komposisi tersebut ditulis sebagai latihan dalam mengolah bahan baku melodi pentatonik menjadi bermacam komposisi dengan karakter berbeda. (

Arabian Traditional Takhat Ensemble (2007)

Genre: Ethno/World/Arabic Traditional
Year: 2007
Label: Pyramedia
Number of Compositions: 9
Quality: MP3 @192kbps
Size: 89mb

In the Arab world today, instruments include an important category whose domain is mostly the urban communities and whose popularity tends to transcend national and geographical barriers. In Egypt, before World War I, these instruments constituted a traditional ensemble known by the name takht, literally “platform.”

The “Takht” ensemble, comprising Oud, Qanun, Nay, Kamanga, Riqq and Kamanjah, plays pure classical music, often referred to as “Tarab”, or enchantment. Music in this category is either purely instrumental, or encompasses the art song. It is a small traditional ensemble of acoustic instruments of complementary timbres, each of which enriches the monophonic texture of the composed music with their own idiosyncratic trills, runs, and slides.

Musical instruments of the Arab world reflect the unity and diversity within the music itself. Certain types of instruments, including end-blown reed flutes, double-reeds, single-reeds, fiddles, plucked lutes and frame drums predominate. Yet, in each area, there may be a preference for particular instruments or instrument types. Moreover, details of construction and playing techniques are affected by local intonation and sound ideals, availability of construction materials, external musical influences, and the functions assigned to each instrument.
