On the strength of their recent performance at WOMADelaide, 12 March 2017 — the band Electric Fields have been invited to perform in Bandung, Indonesia for their World Music Festival on 22–23 July 2017.
Sharing culture, creating opportunities for cultural exchange, and representing cross-cultural collaboration is a core element of the purpose of Electric Fields, and they have enjoyed a meteoric rise since launching their project. Electric Fields will bring new music to Indonesia with strong Aboriginal representation. Their music features the languages of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara people, sung by Zaachariaha Fielding, whose exceptional voice has been described as 'taking soul to the stratosphere' — and also showcases the yidaki (didjeridu). The project will showcase Aboriginal languages, musical instruments, as well as explore collaborative potentials with musicians working in Indonesia.
