Soukma has been amazing international audiences for years as ‘the petite lady with the big sassy voice. Her high‐impact, poised performances range from powerful to subtle, elegant to sublime. Her unique voice brings back memories of the roaring 20s, when men knew how to treat a lady and women knew how to misbehave.
She is inspired by the likes of Billy Holliday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Carmen McRae. Wrapped in the music of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and others are some of her most favorite places.
The 41-year-old from central Java overwhelms on stage, despite her diminutive stature. Soukma has been performing extensively in Indonesia and beyond. Apart from participation in live TV broadcasts, Soukma has performed extensively at Jazz venues, festivals and events with top musicians.
