Selat Malaka

“Selat Malaka release their first single called “Tanpa Ruang”. “Tanpa Ruang” was made in Contemporary Jazz Style by Leo Sihombing.

This song is talking about somebody who needs to leave his mother because of war. After years on the battlefield finally he’s back home, but his mother was gone after the war was over.

This song was influenced by Jimm Hall with the bleak tone and a deep heavy feel. The Bossa rhythm and the organ sound brings us back to the 40’s era. With the guitar strain and the organ sounds also the sax part at the outro, it’s like they want to tell us how to feel the pain and deep confusion of the narrative for this song.”
