Sarana is a dark ambient-experimental unit from Samarinda, East Kalimantan, that uses both electronic and non-electronic sounds. The project was born when Sabrina Eka, already active in the noise music scene, spontaneously asked Annisa Maharani and Istanara Julia Saputri to fill a vacant performance slot.
Since then, they have been active in the experimental scene, producing their debut single, “Binatang” in 2016. The track heralded the release of a first EP, Heal, that same year, which explored various self-healing strategies. Their full-length album Grow was just released this past June 2018 on Noise Bombing.
Sarana are also involved in collaborative recording projects with local and international noise music artists, most recently another tape with Noise Bombing as a split with Orqan. They are currently performing as a duo of Annisa Maharani and Sabrian Eka Felisiana.
