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.
