Once again we are thrilled to bring to these shores an immersive and intimate Sunday Session with the outstanding Komodo Kolektiv.
Komodo Kolektif is a loose collective of veteran multi-instrumentalists based not in Indonesia as one might expect with such a name, but Glasgow, Scotland, their name being a reference to the Indonesian gamelan instruments featured in their compositions. Members include Graeme Miller (Cracks In The Concrete/Metropolicana), GK Machine (Invisible Inc) and Paul Johnston (Blinding Sunlight) amongst others. The instruments used (saron, gender, kempul) belong to local gamelan ensemble Gamelan Naga Mas of which two of the musicians have been full-time members for around a decade.
Combined with an arsenal of vintage synthesizers, FX-laden guitar and traditional hand percussion the resulting concoction is a magical, mystical brew indeed.https://invisible-inc.bandcamp.com/album/sumantras
