Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from October 23, 2020 Options

Aloha" is a word found in all Polynesian languages meaning a spirit of loving togetherness. And that is what you will get every Friday morning as a rotating crew of Sheena's Jungle Room DJs (and special guests) spin three hours of relaxing exotica in all its forms, from the primitive to the Space Age. Can we get you something from the bar?

Darryl, I will have to look that up later. It's not in the tag of the track. last week I had this heap of CD's and LPs scattered around. I can't remember at this moment...

Avatar 11:59am Mr Fab:

a Hawaiian group singing a Spanish-language song in German? Must be Aloha Fridays!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm WR:

MB, l am on my phone for WFMU comment / chat 98% of the time. And I am extremely slow, proof reading, editing multiple times, sometimes discarding the comment because the moment is past. In my case probably for the best or I would be contributing even more irrelevant chatter than I do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Jan Turkenburg:

Indeed mr Fab. Aloha! However most artists are from Indonesia, also the Hawaiian sounding ones, like Rudy Waitara. The Kilima Hawaiians were Dutch but played a mixture of Indonesian Krontjong and other exotica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm coelacanth∅:

aloha Jan and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Webhamster Henry:

These Balanese gamelans are a lot busier than the Sundanese ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm coelacanth∅:

always loving the gamelan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Coel and Webhamster!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Webhamster Henry:

Since Jan is hosting today, I'll just mention that I once had to run out of multi-course rijsttafel in A'dam to catch a train back to Oslo.
Avatar 12:11pm Mr Fab:

This gamelan is ON! The CalArts student gamelan orch are good, and you get to see what all those fantastic instruments look like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Jan Turkenburg:

Ah, what a pity, WH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Webhamster Henry:

There was a very good live gamelan/dance performance streaming a few weeks ago from the Gamelan Cudamani School of Performing Arts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Jan Turkenburg:

I had the privilage of attending several workshops of both Balanese and Javanese Gamalan, the Balanese from a Indonesian Master visiting The NL in the 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Jan Turkenburg:

I still have recordings of the concert we gave at the end of that week, but I'm saving that for later
Avatar 12:17pm Mr Fab:

So Jan, you got to actually play on gamelan instruments?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Our gamelan has been on hiatus since March, like everything else. Here are some shots of us from 2018, taken by former WFMU DJ Stefan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yes i Did Mr Fab, on several. It's an experience you never forget.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Jan Turkenburg:

Wow, Henry! I think if there was one in this area I would join.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Webhamster Henry:

My genre of music is "anything that sounds good in a former cement mine".
Avatar 12:23pm Mr Fab:

That is fantastic, Jan.

Henry, that looks great, but had to chuckle at Catskills?! Guess i still think of culture in that region as Borscht Belt comedians playing to older Jewish folk. Does the gamelan play “Hava Nigela?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Webhamster Henry:

That's more like the Sullivan County side of the Catskills.
Our only "cover" was "Where have all the Flowers Gone", adapted for Pelog. I actually played the lead, on panarus (saron).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm WR:

Indonesians in Netherlands singing German translation of mishmash of Japanese rockabilly song. Loved it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, you gotta love The Blue Diamonds :-) :-)
Avatar 12:46pm Mr Fab:

Isnt that great, WR? And the lyrics to "Sukiyaki' are ridiculous anyway - taking a Japanese instrumental and naming it after a food, it's like taking an American instrumental and naming it "Ham Sandwich."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm ARB:

Too bad I don't have any durian to eat while listening! Aloha amigos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm WR:

Mr Fab, it was not an instrumental, Japanese words in the original. Read the Wikipedia page.


Written to express sorrow at Japan left failing to get Japan out of USA treaty in 1960. Rewritten before being recorded to make it more generic lamenting love loss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Jan Turkenburg:

Aloha Alina!
Avatar 1:00pm Mr Fab:

ARB! Just in time for the Monkey Chant. Always great. Buying a used copy of "Music From The Morning of the World" was a real ear-opener. For many, I'm sure, not just me.
Avatar 1:01pm Feldpausch:

Cheers, ARB!
Avatar 1:01pm Mr Fab:

back in my '80s youth. I really have no idea why I bought it. Pretty esoteric for me at the time. But glad I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Webhamster Henry:

Kecak is nearly as fake as Sukiyaki, but I like them both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Otis:

Hi all. Jus' Kecak'in it here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Jan Turkenburg:

I don't consider it as 'fake', WH, but maybe it's semantics.. Isn't it just a development into something else?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Jan Turkenburg:

Having said that, I don;t think Esquivel is genuinely Indonesian ...
Avatar 1:06pm Feldpausch:

Ungawa, Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm ARB:

The monkey chant had a magnetic pull for many
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Jan Turkenburg:

But there is a jungle and there is drums...
  1:09pm Martinibomb:

my internet is back on yay!
Avatar 1:10pm Mr Fab:

There was a German artist who took credit for sort of developing the Kecak, but Indonesians reject that, saying they were moving the ceremony towards its current direction long before he arrived.
Avatar 1:10pm Domenic:

Welcome back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Otis:

Ungawa Feld!
Avatar 1:23pm Domenic:

So Jan, I'm meta-tagging Exotica ring comps this afternoon. ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Jan Turkenburg:

Sounds like a lot of work, Domenic.
Avatar 1:25pm Domenic:

It is! the D-Wolfe comps are confusing. But i think I figured it out...
Avatar 1:27pm Mr Fab:

That was so fantastic. Where could I find that Alunan Rumpun Bambu Parahiyangan track? My attempt to search for it confused Mr Google.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, love the sound of anklungs, Mr Fab I think found it in a folder with ripped CDs I got from the library, years ago. I was equally confused by the tags. I will further investigate...

Queen Sera, that was nice.
Avatar 1:50pm solo mon:

I just remembered that ARB is subbing for BCthis week, playing some holes with records attached to them.
Avatar 1:51pm Mr Fab:

Could we combine them? "The Tiki Torch is Burning."
Avatar 1:51pm solo mon:

I think each day on sheenas should have a motto? Any of them already do?
Avatar 1:52pm solo mon:

Like “must see Friday’s “
Avatar 1:53pm solo mon:

Haha fab that is at least a great aloha guest you should see if Lele and Connie ( we’re that close I call them that ) would do one!
Avatar 1:54pm solo mon:

Or just ask their Manager: Larry, Jr.
Avatar 1:56pm solo mon:

Ok now there’s like 10 skeletons of dif sizes playing each other’s rib bones.

Yes, join me here www.wfmu.org... for something different
