Domestic Groove: MAYLAFFAYZA

DOMESTIC GROOVE ~ Celeb’s Chosen Seven is my biweekly column in The Beat (Jakarta) mag. Basically it’s an interview via e-mail which focuses on small, intimate, domestic stuff; what Indonesia’s public figures are really into, musically speaking.

For the fifth edition I went upclose-and-personal with Maylaffayza.

Urban Jazz Crossover: Memudahkan, Meringankan, Menggembirakan

Jazz kerap divonis oleh sebagian kalangan sebagai musik sulit, susah dicerna, kurang membumi, dan beragam stigma sejenis. Di Indonesia sendiri perkembangan Jazz di masa-masa awal menemui kendala gigantik. Selain masyarakat umumnya belum siap dengan “kerumitan” musikal khas Jazz serta masih lebih memilih menyimak yang gampang dikonsumsi kuping, isu sumber daya manusia juga menjadi masalah signifikan: Nusantara kekurangan musisi handal lagi mampu meramu musik bikinan kaum kulit hitam ini. Namun, berkat usaha pantang menyerah dari segelintir penggiat Jazz lokal, eksistensi musik ini menunjukkan performa cukup baik, baik kualitas maupun kuantitas—pelan tapi pasti, lambat namun selamat—grafiknya terus menaik.

My Magical Music Trippy Trip!

:: Playlist & notes, handpicked and written by Keke herself ::

…Ceritanya kompilasi gwe ini isinya musik-musik yang outer worldly kerennya sehingga bisa bikin lo terbang tanpa pake sayap.
Kebanyakan fokus ke suara-suara gitarnya. I love guitar sounds so much it’s not even funny (cuz I can’t play it!).

Yang gwe tampilin kebanyakan adalah musisi dan bands yang gwe suka,
dan ada beberapa juga yang gwe anggap membuat gwe suka musik rock tapi not necessarily a band that I still listen too.
Gwe harus berterima kasih kepada kakak cewek gwe yang jauh lebih tua dari gwe umurnya,
plus temen-temen cowoknya, yang dulu sering meninggalkan majalah-majalah musik di rumah gwe.

Music from the Heart, Speak Art!

:: Playlist & notes, handpicked and written by Aldo Himself ::

What I like most about music is how musicians are trying to speak to me,
tell me something, send me a message.

And nothing is more satisfying than realizing that message and acting on it.
So with this opportunity I thank to everybody who love music from their heart.
Just ignore everybody when you speak art!

Tika and the Dissidents: The Beauty of No Expectations

She’s not just a singer. She’s an excellent singer—a diva, to be precise.
With that kind of quality, it should’ve been pretty easy for her to get signed by any huge record label (meaning: better exposure, better promotions, better—and bigger—financial backup), but she prefers to go the Do-It-Yourself way a.k.a. minimum wage, maximum work, more headache, less sleep.

Is she happy with what she’s doing?
