About This Act :

DWIKI DHARMAWAN

Dwiki Dharmawan is Indonesian famous pianist and composer. He creates jazz influenced by the traditional music of Indonesia, where he came of age on the island of Java. His band, Krakatau, is acclaimed worldwide and his newest project, the World Peace Orchestra (WPO), aims to bring social harmony and consciousness to the globe. The powerful lineup of the WPO includes musicians from five continent are all helping Dwiki Dharmawan create a new chapter in the evolution of jazz — while making music with a grander purpose.

Dwiki studied classical music for two years before beginning to pursue jazz at the age of 13, a transition that exposed him to John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Joe Zawinul and Weather Report. In 1984, Dwiki met bassist Pra Budidharma, who would become his musical partner in Krakatau. When he and Pra began Krakatau, there was nothing like it in their country. The music that Krakatau plays originated from the ancient gamelan tonal system, which is the basis for the traditional musics of Sunda, Bali, and Java. Krakatau adapts the slendro scale to Western diatonic scales by fusing its rhythms and unique melodies with jazz, rock, and funk, making for an exciting combination of cultures and a vibrant listening experience. Dwiki has presented his works in the USA, Canada, Spain, Hungary, France, Holland, Switszerland Germany, Italy, Austria, China, Japan, Australia, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia-Montenegro, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Venezuela, Mexico, and many more. His involvement in the Farabi Music Education Center reflects his deep interest in Indonesia’s music development. A music school popular among the young generation, Farabi provides classes in jazz, classical and even Indonesian traditional music.
