Mid seventies was a very critical period in the Indonesian music scene. Rock music dominated the scene and many rock bands played cover version of legendary bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, ELP, Genesis, Kansas etc. But in another stream, there was a movement by a group of musicians / bands who really searched for their own identity by exploring their music talents. One was Guruh Soekarno Putro (the son of Indonesian first president) with his colleagues in Gipsy who made their activities around Menteng area (Jakarta's Beverly Hills). The other one was Harry Roesli in Bandung. Both groups explore the possibilities to marry traditional music with pentatonic notes and modern music equipment with diatonic notes.
