Znathanson : Dwiki Dharmawan – So Far So Close

Dwiki Dharmawan is a name you’ll probably may or may not recognize. He is one of the most mind-blowing keyboardist from Indonesia that has come a long way since starting back in his career in music thirty-one years ago. He is a composer, arranger, peace activist, and not to mention an ambassador of his own country. Dwiki also performed with bands/artists from the MoonJune label including; Dewa Budjana, simakDialog, Tohpati, Tesla Manaf, and one of my favorites, I Know You Well Miss Clara.

He’s been doing music from day one and there is no stop sign for him. This year, this is his international debut on the MoonJune label entitled So Far So Close in which it is dedicated to his late mother, Yuniarti Sugatin Safiyudin. Alongside Dwiki, he brought along some help including Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa, Steven Wilson) on Drums, Jimmy Haslip (Blackjack) on Bass, Dewa Budjana on Guitar, Tohpati on Guitar, I Nyoman Windha on Gamelan Jegog, Balinese Kendang, Suling (Bamboo Flute), and Vocals, and Mahavishnu Orchestra’s violinist Jerry Goodman on Violin.
