The Sambasunda Quintet from Indonesia are releasing their latest album Java this month and will be celebrating with a UK tour in February.
We are giving away five pairs of tickets to see them perform at London’s Union Chapel on February 12. For more details and to enter, please visit our Facebook page.
While their latest venture sees the ensemble slim down to a quintet, the original 18 member group made their way into our top 75 albums in our 75th issue. Java – which was a commissioned project for a chamber ensemble of founding members Ismet Ruchimat, Yadi Cahyadi, Asep Yana, Budi Sofyan and new singer Neng Dini Andriati – is a fresh and original take on the classical Sundanese tradition.
