Dewa Budjana

Guitarist, composer and producer Dewa Budjana (pronounce Dèh-wah Boo-djana) was born on 30 August 1963, in Waikabubak, Bali, Indonesia. (It is an area considered by those who know it to be a tropical paradise.)

Dewa has established a solid body of work as a jazz artist on numerous solo albums (featuring a “who's who” list of current jazz luminaries), while also being the lead guitarist and songwriter of the Indonesian nationally-celebrated pop/rock band, Gigi. His fluidity and grace in both rock and jazz idioms has firmly established his position among the very elite guitarists in the world, as well, perhaps, as Indonesia's most well-known and highly-regarded guitarist ever.
