CD “CINTA”  (“Love” in Indonesia) is a special mix of east and west, of Asian and western scales & rhythms: the product of two quirky musicians.

Patrick plays the  basspart as well as the harmonic part, on acoustic and electric bass. The voice floats above this, where Anna adds little subtile percussion instruments, also pentatonic gambangs. Everything in double function.
