Didi Mudigdo "The Wandering Jazz Talent from Oz"

Born in Australia to Indonesian parents, Didi had a multi-national upbringing, living in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka before the age of 12. He graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with a jazz major, and has since toured Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, performing at many festivals and jazz clubs.

As a composer, Didi started writing piano pieces and pop songs in his early teenage years. Now, his compositional contributions appear on his own albums, as well as albums by TJ Eckleberg, Weizen Ho and Debra Blaquiere.
