Soukma has been amazing international audiences for over 10 years, the petit lady with the mammoth voice. Her high impact, poised performances range from powerful to subtle, sassy to wistful, elegant to sublime. Her unique voice brings back memories of the first half of last century. She is inspired by the likes of Billy Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Carmen Mc Rae. The music of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and many others places her at comfort.

This 29-year-old graceful lady from central Java fills a stage, despite her minim measurements of merely 38 kilos. Soukma has been performing in Indonesia and beyond with numerous Jazz musicians. Apart from participation in nationwide live television broadcasts, she performed extensively at Jazz venues, festivals and events.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
