Inneke Kusumawati – Pengen Kenal

If you, like me, habitually check out Indonesian krontjong pop records, you know many of them look promising and some might have a good sounding backing band. But in the end, the songs are for the bigger part pretty formulaic. I was very happy to find this one though. The excellent backing group De Galaxies add a cool sound and beat to the songs and it has a very addictive song that’s heavy on the sitar and tabla.

The song might still be typical of it’s genre, it’s just so good. But a whole different story is the psychedelic suprise track on the end of the record where the band seems to take advantage of some unused studio time. Check it out:
