Voices of the Rainforest

Rimba Kuna (old jungle) is one of two tracks (the other one is Jalak Bali) on “Lotus Dreams” that has strong South-East Asian influences. I used the Indonesian gamelan orchestra to give voice to the Indonesian rainforest, which is home to some of the world’s rarest animals and plants. An instrument with a sound and rhythm all its own, the Indonesian Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali, and is made up predominantly of percussive instruments.
