Dwiki Dharmawan is among Indonesia’s most gifted and celebrated music personalities: a multi-genre keyboardist, skilled composer and producer, and a conscientious peace activist, equally committed to ecological preservation.
With a career spanning over 40 years and performances in over 80 countries, Dwiki remains one of his country’s most popular and respected industry stalwarts; a ‘cultural icon,’ of sorts. Having toured with the widely- acclaimed legendary Indonesian band he co-founded, Krakatau, for more than three decades, as well as with various incarnations of his “World Peace” Projects and “The Soul of Indonesia”, Dwiki has made promoting social harmony and raising global
consciousness a central focus of his efforts.
With such an extensive international performance resumé, Dwiki Dharmawan is well-known and -respected across the globe. That said, his solo career took a huge boost forward when he teamed with MoonJune Records’ Leonardo Pavkovic in 2015, releasing what would be the first of many solo albums to come: “So Far, So Close.” In 2016’s follow-up, “Pasar Klewer,” saw
Dwiki joining forces with some of the cream of the burgeoning London jazz scene, It was a breakthrough release; earning 5-star reviews in the prestigious Downbeat Magazine, and with other well-respected critics, such as All About Jazz.
2018 witnessed Dwiki on the receiving end of yet more critical praise, with the exquisite “RumahBatu.” Augmented by a stellar cast of players, vastly international in scope including the enigmatic French virtuoso, of Vietnamese descent, Nguyên Lê, on guitar; legendary flamenco fretless bassist, Spain’s Carles Benavent; and, once again, the proven progressive backbone ofYaron Stavi (upright bass) and supreme drummer Asaf Sirkis – this landmark recording offers an intimate glimpse into Dwiki’s unparalleled genius as player, arranger and composer.
Despite a long, storied musical career which has been marked by large- scale successes and critical acclaim, worldwide, Dwiki remains constantly in search of new musical ground. In the Spring of 2020, MoonJune Records released Dwiki’s most daring, genre defying release to date, “Hari Ketiga”. This time, Dwiki reunites with Boris Savoldelli and Asaf Sirkis added with the
presence of Markus Reuter (Touch Guitar).
Dwiki Dharmawan’s latest work is the single “A Night in Murcia” which was just released early 2023 with netra.live. This experience was brought to life by an incredible group of musicians including Israel Varela, Kamal Musallam, Julian Heredia, Steve Thornton, Agam Hamzah, and Dwiki himself on Keyboard Synthesizer. Dwiki Dharmawan “A Night in Murcia” is coming for 1st ever historic collaboration for an FMA (Fractional Music Asset) you won’t miss.
