Domestic Groove: INDRA7

Mostly Indonesian bands like Rumah Sakit’s 1+2, Mata Jiwa, and Suar Marabahaya by ((Auman)). I still keep updated with the electronic stuff from www.residentadvisor.net as well.

Homegrown & Well Known: Leo Sinatra

He’s one of those young virtuosos from Bali. Has got himself one of those more-guitar-less-talk attitudes, started his career as a metal head and once, rather reluctantly, this skinny jean wearing guy tried to taking over the mic.

Oh, I have been playing both Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream and Linkin Park’s A Thousand Suns a lot lately. Those and only those, non stop!

Homegrown & Well Known: I Wayan “Gendo” Suardana

He’s done some horrific time in a filthy Kerobokan prison cell, receives death threats more regularly than an granny has afternoon tea with her friends and yes, this activist turned lawyer admits that he often gets scared.

Homegrown & Well Known: Deny Surya

Either Bali doesn’t have a whole lot of skillful cross-genre drummers or this guy is just one hell of an adventurer when it comes to his music. No matter the reason, Deny Surya is one sought after player.
