This Batak native started studying music when he was six years old. After studying
classical piano and guitar into his teen years, he discovered his true love of new age and world music. He ditched his job
in the family business and in 2002 began dedicating himself to music full time. In his last four albums, the multi-talented
composer has created music inspired by the music of north Sumatra, the birthplace of his ancestors. He is driven to learn
and experiment with Batak music and instruments while updating their sound with modern keyboards and electronics. He continues
to collaborate with Batak musicians in his state of the art studio in Jakarta, where he hopes to produce other groups
dedicated to promoting and modernizing the traditional sounds of Indonesia.
