I don't know much about Indonesian music culture... but I do know that it comprises some highly creative artists in the rock genre, largely unknown over here in Europe. This isn't the first time an album from Indonesia leaves me stunned with open mouth. Dewa Budjana creates enjoyable, playful fusion music with folk influences, plus some Allan Holdsworth and even Zappa feeling.
Favorite track: Temple Island (Home, 2005).
