Album Notes
Banda Manusa reunites the master Kacapi-Suling musicians, Burhan Sukarma, Rukruk Rukmana and Dede Suparman, for their first recording in three decades. These legendary musicians were integral to defining the instrumental genre of Kacapi-Suling and continue to innovate and move the music forward. Through extensive touring and recordings, they have each established reputations that extend far beyond the borders of West Java.

Burhan Sukarma is a profound improvisor whose soulful expressive melodic lines speak across cultural boundaries. His suling playing has influenced countless performers and built his reputation as one of the most influential Sundanese musicians of his generation.

Rukruk Rukmana is an award-winning virtuoso on the kacapi indung. His kacapi indung playing is bold and lyrical, a technique that is particularly suited for instrumental recordings.

Dede Suparman had been the 'first call' kacapi rincik player in West Java for the past 40 years. The consistency and subtle creativity of his playing superbly defines the role of the kacapi rincik.

The title piece, Banda Manusa, was composed by Burhan Sukarma in 2019, putting to music his current thoughts on existence. He describes the sentiment of the piece accordingly, "the earth belongs to all people 'banda manusa' and it is up to us what we make of it."
