Compelling Indonesian electro-acoustic progressive jazz-fusion with a distinctive cultural bent. For its first international release Jakarta-based simakDialog delivers Patahan, a live recording that suggests how Pat Metheny might sound were he from the Far East rather than the United States. A combination of electric and acoustic instruments, the 14 year-old group is innovatively propelled by two percussionists rather than a conventional drummer, but the result is no less powerful. Keyboardist/composer Riza Arshad, guitarist Tohpati and bassist Adhhitya join vocalist Nyak Ina Raseuki and percussionists Endang Ramdam and Emy Tata for five lengthy, episodic and finely detailed compositions that create a unique nexus of jazz and less-traveled ethnicity. Expansive solos, rich harmonies, telling interplay and propulsive rhythms make Patahan a genre-busting album that demands to be heard.
Riza Arshad (acoustic piano, Fender Rhodes electric piano, synth); Tohpati Ario Hutomo (electric, synth and acoustic guitars); Adhitya Pratama (electric fretless bass); Endang Ramdan (Sunda kendang, toys); Emy Tata (Makasar Kendang, ceng-ceng, kethuk, vocals, poetry reading)
