Dewa Budjana


Guitarist, composer and producer Dewa Budjana (pronounce Dèh-wah Boo-djana) was born on 30 August 1963, in Waikabubak, Bali, Indonesia.

Dewa Budjana: Surya Namaskar

Read "Dewa Budjana: Surya Namaskar" reviewed by John Kelman

There was a time when artists were able to release albums on their own schedule rather than that of the record label. While most jazz artists release, at most, one album a year these days, for some there's an even longer gap between recordings. For the most part, the days when an artist like Miles Davis ...

Beledo: Seriously Deep

Read "Seriously Deep" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Beledo's second MoonJune release flows through the listener's ears like the cinematic adaptation of an epic novel, but in sound. Seriously Deep quite deliberately moves from scene to scene (song to song), building up and releasing tension in music that sounds much too powerful and deep to have been primarily created by only three musicians: Uruguayan ...
