"Senyawa Is Turning Indonesian Music On Its Head."—VICE
Fusing folk, doom metal, and improv noise, the Indonesian duo Senyawa are unlike any other band. Wukir Suryadi plays the bambuwukir, an instrument he designed. It's an amplified zither, wild in nature and fashioned out of bamboo, and does the work of many instruments: from plucky guitar to weighty percussion. As for Rully Shabara, he sings, he shrieks, he growls, and he evokes the boundaries of what it means to be human.
Come experience the music of Senyawa—there's no other band like them on the planet.
