I have decided to share what is perhaps the most bizarre musical find I have made this summer: a Hungarian attempt at speculative fiction in the field of music. Apparently, the question WHAT IF OUR URALIC ANCESTORS TRAVELED SOUTHEAST INSTEAD OF WEST ends in Indonesia.

Overall, I find the attempt by the Hungarian singer to adapt to Indonesian musical styles kind of amusing? On the other hand, the usual fascination "world music" has with gamelan is a bit silly, especially when the given scenario most likely ends in URALO-TURKS. I would actually expect something more like the following:


(Tortadur, Sevara Nazarkhan)

Except in Hungarian. Or possibly something with more Mongolian influence:



(In memory of Kül Tegin - Külteginin Hiygizi, Official Orchestra of the Tuvan Cultural Ministry)

I mean, it still means you get to listen to someone talk about peacocks over gong chimes?

Also, here is Kulintang:


(Kulintang Contest in Mindanao)

(Um you may want to skip to 0:50)

Meanwhile, Indonesia doesn't need hypothetical scenarios to appropriate that most European of musical traditions, electronica (tongue fully in cheek).


(Kampung Yang Tenggelam, Belkastrelka)

(This band is great.)
