I grew up in an artistic environment, immersed in percussion, which holds significant importance in our Balinese culture. We have evolved and collaborated with modern music, and it was during this journey that I first encountered Premier Drums. This brand is intertwined with my childhood memories, filled with joy and fun. My initial drum set was a Premier Olympic, followed by the Premier XPK, which accompanied me on every stage for a long time — and it truly ROCKS!
As a native Balinese, my passion for drumming ignited at the age of 15 during my junior high school years and has endured until now. Drums, to me, are not just an instrument; they are a friend, a hobby, a profession, and a canvas for expressing my ideas and energy.
I am currently the drummer for the LOLOT band, a living legend in Bali’s alternative rock scene since 2002, with 10 albums to their credit. I have been part of the band since 2014, following my involvement in various battles of the bands with my previous groups, namely ‘Bhatara (2002-2005)’ and ‘Gecko (2005-2013).’
My musical style draws heavy influence from 90s bands like Rage Against the Machine, Nirvana, Incubus, The Offspring, and Godsmack. Reflecting on my childhood joy, Premier Drums has re-entered my musical life, promising a stronger connection.
I aspire to continually inspire young people to channel their energies positively through music. So, let’s make MUSIC with PREMIER DRUMS…!!!! LIVE for MUSIC, MUSIC for LIFE!!!
