Wukir Suryadi

Wukir Suryadi brings theatrical ruckus to the classical stage, plucking, strumming and bowing his way from peaceful meditations to rhythmical frenzies. The evolution of his music is never complete as he utilizes the agility of his instrument to collaborate with musicians and performance artists from around the world, fluently bridging musical styles and inventing new instruments as he goes.

Hailing from Malang, in Eastern Java, and currently based in Yogyakarta, composer and instrument builder Wukir Suryadi fuses ancient Javanese tradition with contemporary music practice. As a young theatre apprentice, Suryadi began making music for plays and poetry recitals under the informal tutelage of WS Rendra and I Wayan Sadra. He also began building instruments, which led to a residency at Amsterdam’s esteemed Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music.
