Album Notes
BODY TJAK (pronounced: chock) is a unique, cross-cultural production, conceived and created by American percussionist/rhythm dancer and Body Musician Keith Terry, and Indonesian dancer/choreographer and Kecak (keh-chock) expert I Wayan Dibia.

Combining the cultures of East and West as well as new and traditional art forms, BODY TJAK employs a total use of the body through movement, dance, rhythm, sound and voice.

"In it's wonderfully unique yet universal mingling of East and West, and without thorny ideological ramifications, BODY TJAK is a refreshing and almost flawlessly executed work of art.

It is gentle but not slack, charming but not cute, and both inspirational and thoroughly entertaining." San Francisco Bay Guardian The first Body Tjak premiered October 1990 at the Cowell Theatre in San Francisco, and went on to tour the United States and Indonesia.

BODY TJAK/THE CELEBRATION was the second collaboration of Keith Terry and I Wayan Dibia, performed by an international ensemble of twelve renowned musicians and dancers from North and South America and the Indonesian islands of Bali, West Java and Sumatra.

The work premiered at the Bali Arts Festival in July, 1999, and went on to a two week run at Theatre Artaud in San Francisco in October, 1999.

Blending and bending artistic and cultural boundaries, this second collaboration weaves together body music, rhythm dance, kecak, saman, drums, flutes, gongs, rocks, bamboo, water and voice.

Fe Bongolan

A beautifully seamless production of the rhythm nations of Southeast Asia, South America and southeast North America. While first listening, I had a feeling of vague familiarity with these rhythms, some of which I knew nothing about. Almost as if I was having a flash of realization, of a womb memory--powerful, intuitive, natural. There's no studying of intricacies of the rhythms explored. You have to swim inside of this CD, plug in and let it happen to you. I walked around listening to it, walking busy urban streets. The rhythms I was hearing wove intricately in and out of the many faces and languages of the city, becoming a complex soundtrack and heartbeat of this community. It is a trance and a spell that makes the heart grow warm and pure.
