Biography

Jakarta, Indonesia (2002 – present)

In August 2002, in an art university in central Jakarta, two lovers from the fine art faculty Rio & Sari decided to form a band together with their confidant in the faculty named Saleh. This was the first formation of White Shoes & The Couples Company, which features Sari in vocal & violin, Rio in rhythm guitar and Saleh on melody guitar. The three of them made their first debut in this formation in a college event. However, the trio formation diverged from their original plan where actually Sari and Rio had keenly asked a married couple from the music faculty to join the band the couple was Ricky Surya Virgana & Mela Virgana. Yet the couple was hard to meet since they were busy lecturing and covering for orchestras. Several months later, the couple eventually joined White Shoes & The Couples Company with Ricky on Bass and cello and Mella in viola, keyboards and piano.

The first song of white shoes & The Couples Company was “Runaway Song” written by Sari & Rio. The next one was “Windu & Defrina”, followed by “Sunday Memory Lane” and “Nothing To Fear”.

The Band’s acquaintance with its current manager Indra Ameng was another story. Indra Ameng was then already a well-known manager. Previously he was the manager of an old famous band in the 1990’s called Rumahsakit. Nevertheless, White Shoes & The Couples Company and Indra Ameng did not meet in the world of music, but the world of visual art. This was because Indra Ameng happened to be a visual artist and a program coordinator in an artist initiative space called ruangrupa.

    FYI: baru aja abis ngobrol" dan share sama mas Ricky Virgana, ternyata Tam Tam Buku, terinspirasi dari pemusik Joe Meek makanya musiknya jadi lebih ke psychedelic pop :)
