Pantropical: Teguh Permana (of Tarawangsawelas)

Pantropical: Teguh Permana (of Tarawangsawelas)

Friday July 8, 20:00 - Friday July 8, 22:00

Institut for (X), Godsbanen, Aarhus


✹ TEGUH PERMANA (of Tarawangsawelas)

location: Institut for (X) - Skovgårdsgade 5c, Aarhus, Denmark
20:00 - 22:00 | entrance: tba

Pantropical is proud to present a last minute show in Aarhus, featuring traditional ritualistic music and contemporary improvisation from Indonesia.

Teguh Permana, from Bandung Indonesia, is a master of the Tarawangsa music tradition. His solo set this night is based on the Tarawangsa - a form of sacred music related to Indonesia's second most populous ethnic group, the Sundanese people of West Java. The music is usually performed in the context of harvest rituals.

Teguh has been studying the music with the old masters of Rancakalong, a village in an area east of Bandung where this ritual context is still a living tradition. He will be playing the Tarawangsa (like its namesake genre); a traditional Sundanese musical instrument that is best described as a two-stringed bowed lute.
Together with Azah Sastra, he formed Tarawangsawelas, the duo that is known for their excellent 'Wanci' album released in 2017 on Rabih Beaini's Morphine records. They create a unique, contemporary vision of the Tarawangsa.


Pantropical glæder sig over at kunne præsentere Teguh Permana fra Bandung, Indonesien til denne sidste-øjebliks-koncert i Aarhus, der serverer en blanding af traditionel/rituel musik og moderne improvisation.

Teguh Permanas solosæt bygger på genren Tarawangsa, som er en rituel/religiøs musiktradition, der relaterer til det sundanesiske folk på Vestjava (Indonesiens næstmest folkerige gruppe). Han spiller på et traditionelt strengeinstrument (der deler navn med genren og bedst kan beskrives som en form for tostrenget, buet lut), og han har stået i lære hos de gamle mestre i Rancakalong (en landsby øst for Bandung), hvor musikkens rituelle kontekst stadig er en levende tradition.

Sammen med Azah Sastra har han duoen Tarawangsawelas, der i 2017 udgav det fremragende album “Wanci” på Rabih Beainis Morphine Records, der lykkedes med at skabe en unik, moderne vision for Tarawangsa-genren.

Institut for (X), Godsbanen, AarhusSkovgaardsgade 5CAarhus,8000 Map

Nebula is a line of events celebrating the unknown, the art of Improvisation. With focus on bringing together musicians from different walks of life, and by equalizing the premis for which they enter the concept of Nebula - we are trying to bring together not only musicians of different kind, but audiences as well though 100% improvisation. With only a few years on the scene, we've already managed to outline the importance of spaces like this. And it makes us proud to announce the second official Nebula concert in Århus since COVID-19 became a reality.
At this second edition, we've again teamed up with the local jazz crew Sun Ship who's been putting Århus on the map for over 10 years. Also this will be one of many contributions to making Aarhus the Music City we know it is.

Snöleoparden is a living enigma hailing from Århus, Denmark. Besides being a good friend of Nebula, he has performed in most places of the world, and continues to push boundaries as a curious, original and most empathetic musician and artist. Recording and releasing music with the likes of Kresten Osgood, Prins Nitram og Pauline Lumholt, he has never been a fan of stagnation, which we can only respect and admire.
