You could loosely describe the Jawa Pitu Band as a 'world music', as we predominantly play dangdut — music from 1970s Indonesia which is a heady mix of Hindustani, Malay, Arabic and Western music. We play our own version of dangdut with additional inspiration from western jazz/groove and also Indonesian gamelan music. With 3 percussionists in the band, we also have have strong influences from African and Middle Eastern rhythms.
The Jawa Pitu Band lineup consists of
Yana Lestari — vocals
Pipin Jamison — vocals
Musa Kanda — gamelan saron, darbuka, riq , gendang, gongs
Ascelin Gordon — guitar, bansuri
Daud Maryanto — drums
