You may know Arrington de Dionyso from his post-punk-freak-folk group Old Time Relijun, or from his trance-inducing solo experimentations with overtone-singing, shruti-box, jaw harp, and Kadri Gopalnath-inspired bass clarinet. He also teaches workshops on "Unleashing the Voice", and plays in ESP-Disk's free-jazz quartet The Naked Future. His paintings offer a visual depiction of said future, where humans, animals, and angels live in naked, bestial harmony. Malaikat Dan Singha (K Records, 2009) is an album that melds all of these influences and more: Arrington's unleashed vocals are sung entirely in Indonesian, and may contain translations of William Blake and the Zohar.
Arrington de Dionyso brings Malaikat Dan Singa on the road with a full band -- Nehemiah on bass, Ruben on drums (trading w/ Germaine), and Arrington on Vox/Guitar/BassClarinet --
engineer: Dave Mambach
