Plaid featuring the South Bank Gamelan from Ben Dowden on Vimeo.

Check out this amazing trailer for Plaid and the Southbank Gamelan Players. Really beautiful and strange, almost tribal qualities. Gamelan is a hugely underrated form of musical expression, you can hear it in so much from Dirty Projectors right through to Foals. A lot of the syncopated stuff you hear in music these days comes right from this interesting style of music.

Add the always amazing Electronics of Plaid (Warp) and the result is really something.
