TUSK Music Presents

TUSK Festival 2020

September 28-October 11

SENYAWA

The Indonesian duo of Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryada’s recent eventual collaboration with Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) has perhaps long seemed inevitable – the two bands have always felt linked by some ancient and ethereal aesthetic bond, though with sounds that seem to suggest very different social contexts and historical times. Vast low-end rumble seemingly drawn from the very core of the earth, sublime throat singing and vocalisations colluding to form other-worldly long-form music constructs that inhabit their own reverberant universe. Senyawa appeared at TUSK 2016 and left everyone slack-jawed. Since then they’ve added new constructions to their armoury of self-built instruments and we’re delighted to welcome them back to TUSK.
