Coming weeks I'm participating as a visual artist documenting this exciting musical collaboration between Gran Kino & Sarasvati, including a tour in Indonesia!
"At the festival Printemps Français 2013, the four musicians of French indie rock band Gran Kino shared the stage with Sarasvati, one of the leading lights of Indonesia’s independent scene. From this first meeting grew the seeds of an idea for future collaboration. The fruit of their work together came this year with the reworking of an epic of the Sundanese tradition, Bujangga Manik. Through these 600 year old poems, filled with questions on the nature of happiness, the two bands draw us into a poetic journey in which literary and musical influences are fused."
