Metta Legita (born 1981) is an Indonesian Pianist, Composer, and Arranger. She took her first piano lesson at age 16 in Bandung and began her formal music education in nearby Jakarta soon thereafter. The trajectory of her musical journey, and its true origins, are nevertheless at variance with these facts – Metta’s passion and undeviating determination meant that she would perform at a high level only a few years later. Chroma String Quartet is a modern string quartet which likes to experiment on various genre of music and repertoire such as tango, ragtime, classical, swing, pop and even rock. They were classical trained musicians whom discovered that it was very amusing to play any kinds of music and also spread the possibility which was able to perform on such a small ensemble of 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello.
