Hailed as one Indonesia’s most popular singers and having sold more than one million albums over the past five years, Kande’s moving and enchanting blend of world music mixes rich vocal texture with a distinctive combination of Acehnese traditional percussion and western instrumentation. Known for works that express themes of peace and harmony, the word ‘kande’ originates from the Acehnese candle historically used as a symbol of hope during prolonged periods of political upheaval and unrest. Kande’s colourful and energetic performances sustain this legacy, inspiring and uplifting modern-day audiences, most recently in the wake of the 2004 Tsunami that left the Province of Aceh hardest-hit by the disaster.
