Sambasunda - Salsa and Salse: We Live, We Eat, We Play Bamboos (2001)

Another great offering from one of Indonesia’s finest bands, Sambasunda, this time playing with salsa and «salse» (Sundanese word for “people who usually like to relax”).

To learn (and listen!) more about this amazing band, search for their Berekis album here on Babe(b)logue. Otherwise, you can read the interview with Bpk Ismet Ruchimat from Sambasunda realised in January 2002 by Judith Shelley on behalf of Inspirasi Magazine and Suara Indonesia Radio Show BayFM.

A good starting point to dig the most recent developments in Indonesian music could be New Music from Indonesia, a weekly, 15-minute podcast covering the music scene in Indonesia, available here.

Enjoy the Salsa and the «Salse»!
