A bumper 27-track compilation.
A new compilation from Soundway Records, Padang Moonrise: The Birth of the Modern Indonesian Recording Industry (1955-69), will tell the first chapter in the story of modern Indonesian music.
Padang Moonrise is a collection of recordings from the ‘5os and ’60s and features regional Indonesian pop music, Islamic Gambus, traditional Padang songs, Javanese and Balinese Gamelan and Kroncong.
A press release for the compilation explains:
“Modern Indonesian music of the 1950s & ’60s incorporated sounds from around Southeast Asia but in reality, Indonesia at the time was still a fairly insular place, until in 1965 a huge political upheaval occurred and President Soekarno was overthrown. Based mostly in the capital city Jakarta, musicians from around the archipelago were adept at assimilating elements of Javanese, Sumatran, Malay, Chinese, Arabic, Hawaiian, American, British, and Indian music, to create cultural hybrids across a variety of local, national, and international genres”.
