So, I tried to keep up with new music this year. About 90% of my listening was a playlist of the same 10 songs, including Nao’s “Saturn” and “Orbit.” (That album is still so fantastic.)

But in the moments that I did venture away from my comfort zone, I was blessed to hear some really great textures and stories.

Here’s a roundup of what I enjoyed sonically from artists of Indonesian heritage this year. Get the Apple Music version here.

P.S. If you’re looking for something more upbeat, I did a mix with 100.000 back in May. Get dancing!
