Vocal and Percussion Workshop with Kande
Hailed as one Indonesia’s most popular singers and having sold more than one million albums over the past five years, Kande’s moving and enchanting blend of world music mixes rich vocal texture with a distinctive combination of Acehnese traditional percussion and western instrumentation.
Join lead vocalist Rafly for an introduction to a different world of vocals and percussion. The rich texture of his vocal style derives from 16th century Sufi preaching.
Rafly and Kande musicians will also lead a rapa’i percussion workshop, using Acehnese percussion instruments made from jackfruit wood and goat skin.
Kande’s uplifting music combines traditional Islamic percussion and vocals with western guitars and bass. It expresses messages about peace, religion, and the environment.
