It sounds like a contradiction in terms between the showcased ritual images and traditional gamelans at Europalia Indonesia, but Indonesia rocks.
Especially if you know that in the sixties, under President Sukarno, it was still considered mentally sick to listen to The Beatles, and people were imprisoned for it. Back then it was clandestine, pioneered by the garage rock chicks of Dara Puspita, and now with The Flower Girls.
During a 60’s & 70’s Indonesian Rock & Roll Night, they will pay tribute to their predecessors. The supergroup was founded by the percussionist of the band Indische Party, who recorded some of the tracks on their new album at the Abbey Road studio. Karma.
