Event description

Liquid Architecture presents the iconic Javanese duo Senyawa with support from Jasmin Wing-Yin Leung.

Senyawa produces experimental practices by exploring tribal, primitive sounds with industrial music in the most powerful way. By weaving folkloric moods with various shades of modern genre hybrids, Senyawa has been navigating unexplored musical terrain for more than a decade. Their sound is comprised of Rully Shabara’s deft extended vocal explorations punctuating the frenetic sounds of instrument builder, Wukir Suryadi’s modern-primitive instrumentation.

Senyawa have performed at many notable festivals all over the world such as Primavera Festival in Barcelona to smaller but important venues such as Café Oto in London. Senyawa also won multiple awards such as the Green Room Award for Best Music Composition and Sound Design in 2018 and 2017 Ars Electronica Award for Digital Music and Sound.

They have collaborated and performed with many notable musicians such as Stephen O`Malley, Robert AA Lowe, Otomo Yosihide, Rabih Beaini, Damo Suzuki, Justin Vernon, Oren Ambarchi, and many others. In 2012, filmmaker Vincent Moon made a film about them entitled "Calling the New Gods"

During the pandemic, Senyawa released new album `Alkisah` with over 40 labels around the world and quoted by The New York Times as the new global jukebox for the future of international music industry
