Program Notes

Hentakan Jiwa (The Beat of the Soul) is an exploration of sounds with human voice. The text is taken from the terminology used for various Malay traditional dance movements. Inspired by an Indonesian exotic Malay scale, the music depicts a modern staging of Malay traditional dance that translates into a vibrant sound experience through the variety colors of vocal quality produced by the ensemble. With stomps, claps, tongue clicks, snaps, shouts, and extreme range and dynamics, this showpiece is sure to leave a lasting impression for the audience. It is a perfect choice for a concert closure!
