Vol.05: The Experience Brothers
The Experience Brothers: Back in November 2001, brothers Ibrahim Saladdin and Daud Sarassin formed the band whose name was inspired by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Influenced by The Who, The Beatles – among several other legends of the 1960s and 1970s – these two brothers are recognized in the independent music sphere of Indonesia for their brand of rock and roll. Perhaps the comfort of performing with someone you are tied to by blood has also impacted the way The Experience perform their songs, all of which are in English. The casual, but confident vibe of this two-man band is what makes their performances memorable. Their debut album, Summer of Love, was released in 2007 and their second album, Eye Contact, made it to the third rank on Rolling Stone’s Top Ten Charts in 2011. We invited the duo to practice and recording space Studio Taman in Kemang a month ago and they showed us why they are a group that everybody has their eyes on.
