MUSICIAN Born:

Dewa Budjana

Guitarist, composer and producer Dewa Budjana (pronounce Dèh-wah Boo-djana) was born on 30 August 1963, in Waikabubak, Bali, Indonesia. (It is an area considered by those who know it to be a tropical paradise.) Dewa has established a solid body of work as a jazz artist on numerous solo albums (featuring a "who's who" list of current jazz luminaries), while also being the lead guitarist and songwriter of the Indonesian nationally-celebrated pop/rock band, Gigi. His fluidity and grace in both rock and jazz idioms has firmly established his position among the very elite guitarists in the world, as well, perhaps, as Indonesia's most well-known and highly-regarded guitarist ever. Dewa’s journey as a musician started at the early age of eleven, when he bought his first guitar

Dewa Budjana and Tohpati: Janapati

Read "Janapati" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Janapati combines the names of two of the best guitarists (jazz, rock, jazz-rock fusion, world, and any/every other music you've got) from Indonesia, Dewa Budjana and Tohpati Ario Hutomo (Tohpati). As leaders of their own bands or as contributors to other recordings, the two have appeared on more than fifty combined releases, many for the globetrotting ...

Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1" reviewed by Jim Worsley

The name Jimmy Haslip needs no introduction. So, he doesn't get one. Seriously, we had a lot of ground to cover and he had so many great stories and interesting asides to share that we are breaking the interview into two parts as it is. So, without further ado... All About Jazz: I ...

Dewa Budjana: Mahandini

Read "Mahandini" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

After the extensive double album venture Zentuary (Favored Nations, 2016), Indonesian guitar virtuoso Dewa Budjana returns with a more condensed set of tunes that have a much heavier edge to them. Instead of featuring a multitude of different guests and recording over a longer period of time, as on its predecessor, Mahandini finds Budjana in interplay ...

Dwiki Dharmawan: Rumah Batu

Read "Rumah Batu" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Dwiki Dharmawan's international debut, So Far So Close (MoonJune Records) (2016), pitted the Indonesian pianist with Jimmy Haslip, Chad Wackerman and Indonesian six-string maestros Thopati and Dewa Budjana in a mostly conventional jazz-fusion setting. On Pasar Klewer (2017) Dharmawan gave vent to his incredibly broad compositional palette, with a genre-bending mash-up featuring Jerry Goodman, Mark Wingfield, ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit. Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Dewa Budjana: Zentuary

Read "Zentuary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Indonesian composer, guitarist and bandleader Dewa Budjana's tenth release (and his first on guitarist Steve Vai's label Favored Nations in association with Budjana's usual label, MoonJune) reviews, consolidates and advances his sound. Budjana's three decades of performing and recording, including collaborations with jazz A-listers as Peter Erskine, Joe Locke and Larry Goldings, are worth the retrospective. ...
