This music veteran from the land of gods has some simple inspiration for everyone.
Rudolf Dethu comes from Bali, a place where local music is in the minority from time to time.
Although the island is often noted as the melting pot of cultures, the local music scene is way behind that of other parts of Indonesia, and not many local acts have made their way to national recognition.
Acting as manager and propagandist, in 2003 Dethu led his revolutionary legion, Superman is Dead. With words, he simultaneously promoted the band via the Internet. Slowly but surely, the band’s music was heard and started to gain new fans nationwide.
