Suarasama Fajar Di Atas Awan.
Suarasama’s principal members are Irwansyah Harahap and Rithaony Hutajulu, married ethnomusicologists on the faculty of the University of North Sumatra. Judging by this debut album-released in France a decade ago and just now reaching the States-their lectures must be pretty trippy. Harahap composes the songs, while Hutajulu delivers them in a lulling voice of quiet exoticism, meshing with the band before soaring into its own dimension. Suarasama favors non-Western acoustic instruments, including gambus (a pear-shaped Arabian oud) and tabla, yet shuns a purist approach, settling into a gentle groove recalling the hypnoticism of psychedelic folk.
