The instrumental album entitled 'JATI' is a compilation of ethnic music that was composed especially for dance projects which Sri Mahligai has been involved.
These songs were meaningful to Sri Mahligai because through these creative processes, they were able to collaborate with experienced musicians in the region.
Most of the songs featured in the albums were composed jointly.
These songs were created especially for dance projects including major works such as Gentarasa and Gentarasa II.
JATI is not only meant for local listeners and activists, but has the potential to be accepted in the world music genre - a fusion of musical works that makes use of various musical styles.
It is common knowledge that Malay traditional music were heavily influenced from various sources including Middle Eastern, Spanish, Portuguese, Indian and Chinese.
With the production of this album, it somewhat completes a full circle, where the products of these influences were returned back to the world.
JATI has the potential to gain acceptance worldwide should its marketing strategy is well defined.
In this album, listeners will be able to hear familiar foreign styles such as mambo, rhumba and even flamenco.
The album will be available at Muzika Records and well-known CD outlets by middle of this month.
