Bestival-bound Bjork interested in Indonesian influences
Bookmark and Share
Singer Bjork has explained how she came to be interested in the gamelan style of music from Indonesia, which she has incorporated into some of her songs.

During a Twitter interview with music magazine NME, she answered a range of questions from her fans and one concerned this style.

The Icelandic star explained: "I heard gamelan music first as a teenager," noting she had been hoping to record there and hopes to sing with a gamelan orchestra one day.

Bjork added that she was "chuffed" at the interest shown in her incorporation of this kind of music into her work.

She also discussed her exploration of the combination of music, nature and technology.

The singer finished the interview by telling the magazine: "See you at Bestival!" where she will star alongside the likes of James Blake, Primal Scream and The Cure.

Hosted at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight, this year's Bestival runs from September 8th to 11th.
