This eclectic compilation of Indonesian music arose out of 7 years of studio and field recordings, forming the soundtrack for an in depth series of films by Anthropologist Robert Lemelson and filmmaker Dag Yngvesson, looking at culture and mental illness in Bali and Java. Many of the films, spanning up to a decade in the lives of their central characters, are still in the process of being shot and edited. But the songs, gathered and recorded during downtime in Indonesia and at home in the US, gradually increased in number, eventually becoming a project of their own.
