Angkasa Showcase by Diandra Arjunaidi (8th Jan)

9 Jan

Diandra Arjunaidi was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur. She picked up on music at a very young age. At the young age of 14, she taught herself how to play the guitar and has since been writing songs. She took up vocal lessons at age 13 and quit at age 15, but continued singing by herself.

While most of her songs are in English, Diandra is slowly writing more Malay songs to cater to more markets which now produce a promising single called ‘Angkasa’. Her music style is very much influenced by musicians such as Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash and Lily Allen.

Diandra’s slow but sure rise in the local music scene kick-started through the power of social network. After posting several casual videos of her singing in her bedroom, performer Arabyrd stumbled upon the video and after tweeting about it, singer-songwriter Reza Salleh billed her for the first live show, a set in the monthly Moonshine Series’ 4th Anniversary. Since then, she has played in many esteemed places such as Laundry Bar and No Black Tie alongside prominent names in the scene such as Najwa and Liyana Fizi. She is now signed as Yuna’s 1st artiste under the label Yuna Room Records.

Apart from music, Diandra who was a performing arts student in college, dabbles in acting and has starred in television drama ‘Gemilang, and ‘Sakura’ on TV3.
