Bio

The name is simple. The music it produces, is not.

Batavia Collective (BTVC), as the name suggests, is a group of Jakarta-based, Afrocentric musicians who are equally influenced and driven by the sophistication, ruggedness and high-artistry of future jazz, liquid funk, electronic soul and everything in between, as it is by the gritty, uncompromising and hard-hitting streets of Indonesia’s capital.

Consisting of Elfa Zulham on drums, Doni Joesran on keys and Kenny Gabriel on synth bass, the trio presents genre-bending music combining mind-altering synths and snazzy chord progressions, deep sub-bass, energetic grooves and neck-breaking tempos to produce a sonic feast that excites the body and stimulates the mind.
