Rhythm Hunters - 'Salam Dunia (World Peace)' tour The much anticipated new studio album from NSW Central Coast world music group Rhythm Hunters is set to be released mid September 2017, and they can't wait to hit the road and bring this new album to the world!
A ground breaking new world album bringing together 10 years of the raw, love infused contemporary tribal sound of Rhythm Hunters. The sound, heavily informed by Indonesian music comes together in a way that honours those roots, yet also launches forward into a world of no boundaries, where cultures and eras blend, meet, talk and ultimately become one. This is not traditional music, nor a reflection of current musical trends. All the tracks are present tense in the moment, evolving musical artworks.
The album was recorded by Melbourne engineer Robin May (John Butler Trio, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Nick Cave, Paul Kelly) and produced by legendary producer, musician and percussionist Nicky Bomba, in country Victoria alpine region in early 2017. Immersed in nature and locked away for several weeks as a band, and family living and working together in the studio, the resulting music is textural, brave, thunderous, sometimes orchestral, yet fun, joyous and great on the ear. Many lessons were learnt about having a plan and aborting the plan, as the moment must prevail over any expected outcome.
It's Always the Same, Till it's Different... is available as in independent release online and CD/ download from Friday 15th September 2017.
