"I'm going to try two short works. The first is Borra Chambo's prelude to his masterwork, Dissolution by Self-Intention."
―Zan Yant introduces Chambo's work.[src]

Borra Chambo was a male musician who worked at around the time in which hyperspace travel was introduced, a period considered a golden age for classical music.[2] During that time, Chambo composed the piece known as Dissolution by Self-Intention, which included a prelude. During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Zabrak surgeon Zan Yant considered Dissolution by Self-Intention Chambo's masterwork and played the prelude to it on his quetarra, a type of musical instrument. Yant played the piece, crediting Chambo, in front of a crowd in the cantina built in the Republic medical base known as Republic Mobile Surgical Unit 7, which he worked in on the planet Drongar.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Borra Chambo was first mentioned in MedStar I: Battle Surgeons, a novel written by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry and released in 2004. He received a mention again in the first part of Slugthrowers: An Overview of Popular Music and Musicians in a Galaxy Far, Far Away, an article written by Edward M. Erdelac and published on the StarWars.com Blog in 2013.
