MoonJune has released back in January 2013 another album of Dewa Budjana, (click on ==>)Dawai In Paradise.

Budjana”s fifth solo album, Dawai In Paradise, explores his vast, diverse array of guitar stylings in a host of fresh, powerful, intriguing musical settings. A showcase of astounding, brilliant music is performed by a host of great musicians — including Grammy-winning artists drummer Peter Erskine (Weather Report; Steps Ahead) and multi-instrumentalist Howard Levy (Bela Fleck & The Flectones), the renowned Indonesian jazz keyboardist and producer, Indra Lesmana, his Indonesian contemporary, celebrated young pianist Ade Irawan, and the late legendary jazz bassist, Dave Carpenter — with proceedings decorated beautifully by the Bali native’s masterful strokes and deft touch. Ranging from the bold and adventurous to the gracefully elegant, Budjana‘s playing bounces from the frantic urgency of a Fripp or McLaughlin to the organic intimacy of a Metheny or Towner with equal ease and fluidity. Previously unexplored waters are navigated with an adroit leisure, as his bountiful skills as both a composer and improviser are clearly on display. His international debut is chocked full of surprises, and it’s elegance and repose belies the enormity of the album’s ambition. Dawai In Paradise is a celebration of life through music. Like the paradise of Budjana‘s native Bali, its beauty is equally compelling and awe-inspiring.
