Biography

Kartika Jahja, or TIKA as she is known, is a solo singer who choses a different path than most Indonesian so-called divas. Having gone thru a colorful musical evolution, where she sang for Jazz bands, Electronic and even Punk bands, TIKA finally decides to stick with whatever flows out of her soul. “Paint the picture first, think of the frame later.” is what she said “I’m just trying to capture whatever comes out before it washes away and then think about genre, marketing and all that after.” Some call it trip hop, some thinks its jazzy, and a few have baptized it as being noir music in comparison to noir films. On her critically aclaimed debut album, TIKA collaborates with her music-soulmates: Aghi, Iman, and Bemby from the band LAIN (www.myspace.com/lain) as well as Age from veteran indie band the Jonis. And now after 3 years of absence, TIKA’s newest album the Headless Songstress has finally flown. This time she joins forces “the Dissidents” - Okky Rahman, Susan Agiwitanto, and Luky Annash- transforming the name TIKA to become TIKA & the dissidents. Get it at your local stores.
