Strawberry Rain already reissued Kelompok Kampungan's 'Mencari Tuhan' on CD, as well as an LP containing five of its nine tracks, and now they round things off by dropping the remaining four numbers on this limited 10".

I hadn't encountered this lot before but they're a progressive folk crew from Indonesia and as far as I can tell this was recorded in 1964 who played a bizarre mixture of classical, traditional and rock instrumentation as well as their own handmade inventions. I'm particularly liking the upbeat closer 'Berkata Indonesia Dari Yogyakarta' with its rock-ish heads-down bass riff, vocal drones and chants and twisty bowed strings.

There are clear influences from American hippie folk and Indonesian traditional music, all melted together to create something altogether different. It's light-hearted, tuneful and strangely dream-like and otherworldly despite being very much of its time. I'm very curious to hear the other half of the album now.
