Terry Collins' notes on his Indonesian selections:

1977. Guruh Gypsy - Barong Gundah
Guruh Soekarnoputra, son of the former president, and brother of recent President Megawati, loves Balinese gamelan and recruited prog-rock group Gypsy to interpret his songs. This track is based on the barong dance. The singer, Chrisye, went on to a very successful solo career.

1971. The Gang Of Harry Roesli - Don't Talk About Freedom
Harry Roesli was a social activist, some say eccentric. It was unwise to talk about freedom during the Soeharto era...

2010. Jaduk Kuaetnika - Barong
Djaduk Ferianto is a cultural artist/festival and workshop organiser at home and abroad. For the Balinese, Barong is the symbol of health and good fortune, and appears in ceremonies as a masked dancer fighting evil in the form of the witch Rangda.

1999. Discus - Violin Metaphysics
The album Discus 1, available on Mellow Records Bandcamp, is a bravura display of no one particular genre. In its minimalism, this track calls to mind Soft Machine's Out-Bloody-Rageous.

1989. Bubi Chen - Karanginan
Keith Jarrett meets Sunda kecapi (zither) suling (bamboo flute) from an album which cries out for a digital release.

2002. simakDialog - Alternate Jeda
From sD's second album Baur when they were still going through their Pat Metheny phase, before Riza Arshad, the leader-composer, ditched the drums, opted for Sundanese percussion and recorded four ethno-jazz albums. This track is unlike anything else I've heard from him.

2007. Aksan Sjuman & The Committee Of The Fest - Hungry
Senior drummer Aksan got bored making "pleasant music" and assembled a group associated with his music school to see what they could collectively come up with. Aksan Sjuman & The Committee Of The Fest was the result, and this track fits in nicely with Annette Peacock.

2010. Rully Shabara & Wukir (Senyawa) - Angin
Senyawa are 'noise' merchants based in Yogyakarta, the cultural centre of Central Java. They are widely travelled,with recent gigs in the UK,the USA and Germany. Seeing them live is a primeval experience... and truly life affirming.

2016. Mo'ong N' Friends - Ajur
A group pushing the 'ethno envelope'.

2016. Railroad Trio - Reflection
Adi Wijaya, was keyboard player in the now defunct I Know You Well Miss Clara from Yogya, whose album Chapter One was one of the top prog-rock albums of 2013. This track is from his privately circulated album Railroad Therapy, a dreamlike passage through life.
