Leboni is a tiny encampment on a corner of Lake Poso, high in a plateau of Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. Its inhabitants are roughly all one large family, transmigrant Rampis from a district of North Luwu in South Sulawesi. In one common home, situated within a cacao camp subsequent to a large Saluopa Waterfall, live a family of musicians who play a singular character of guitar-based song called karambangan.
This singular family rope has taken Portuguese-inspired fingerpicked guitar and Christian hymn-inspired outspoken harmonies and combined homemade ukeleles, bamboo flutes called seruling, and a one-stringed bent instrument, borrowed from a internal Pamona people, called geso-geso. The elementary chords and homespun orchestration lay a substructure for communication sung in a internal languages of Pamona and Rampi.
