"'Vajranala sees the Indonesian experimental duo of vocalist Rully Shabara and multi-instrumentalist Wukir Suryadi explore how, over centuries, the natural world has shaped our society, the knowledge systems from which power derives, and why that still resonates today. It's an exercise in understanding the root of the power (knowledge) discussed in their 2021 release Alkisah. When it comes to 'power', says Senyawa vocalist Rully Shabara, "people will normally think of someone political, but I don't think that's the case. The origin of power goes deeper than that." It's the shamans, he says, who were the first possessors of power: "If you're in a village, if you're considered to have the knowledge to connect people with the realm of the gods, then you will have power before the leader. It's very fundamental to explore this."" (label info)
