Waldjinah With Fracas And Gamelan Padhang Moncar

Waldjinah with Fracas and Gamelan Padhang Moncar

In October 2003, Gamelan Padhang Moncar collaborated with the Indonesian kroncong diva, Waldjinah, and her kroncong ensemble, Bintang Surakarta, to present an evening of gamelan and jazz at the 7th Wellington International Jazz Festival.

Trio Fracas (a saxophone trio comprising Blair Latham, Nils Olsen and Anton Wuts) also joined us for arrangements of Indonesian songs by local composers for gamelan, saxophones, kroncong orchestra and voice.

Radio NZ Concert later broadcast a recording of the concert. Our CD, Campur Sari, contains studio recordings.
