Review

As debuts go, this one from Bandung-based duo Tarawangsawelas (AKA Taguh Permana and Wisnu Ridwana) is pretty special. Produced by acclaimed, open-minded beat-smith Rabih Beani, the album showcases the pair's contemporary take on tarawangsa, a sacred musical form from Sudanese West Java. While there are some interesting experimental flourishes - think field recordings, crackling noise samples and delicately placed effects - for the most part the music is rich in traditional instrumentation from the region. It's mostly beat-free, but pleasingly rhythmic, as if Permana and Ridwana want to entice us into a mystical trance. Above all else, the music is intensely beautiful and pleasingly becalmed.
