Akuphone resumes it's reissue operations with it's latest compilation, Malam Minggu: A Saturday Night In Sunda. This release brings us once again to Southeast Asia, with a stopover in the Indonesian archipelago - to the region of Sunda in western Java. As it's name suggests, this collection immerses us in the vibes of Sundanese nights at the turn of the 1980s. During the post-independence climate of the 1960s, Presidents Sukarno and Suharto encouraged artists to renew and innovate traditional Indonesian art forms in an attempt to limit and control the spread of Western music - which was banned from broadcasting in 1961. This policy saw a revival of traditional musical styles like gamelan degung, and the emergence of Indonesian singing genres: jaipong and pop sunda. Recorded between 1978 and 1985, this unique and surprising selection presents some of the most popular artists of the time, such as Nano S. and Tati Saleh. It is richly documented by Southeast Asian music specialist Edouard Degay Delpeuch. Also features: Group Gentra Madya, Tati Saleh & Marriza Group, and Mang Memed Group.
