Bubugiri is an Indonesian acoustic duo consists of two best friends Bubu and Giri. Happened to make a casual acquaintance in High School, they met again in 2007 and played music together in some Cafés for some reguler performances and events in Bandung and Jakarta. Based on desire on making their own original music compositions, they agreed to form an acoustic duo guitar-vocal project with “bubugiri” as their stage name which was simply derived from their nicknames.
Bubugiri began their musical journey by performing regularly at some Cafes in Jakarta like Loca, Elbow, Birdcage, Immigrant, Umbra, Velpa, Smoking Joe’s, Second Floor, etc, performing for some wedding ceremonies, collages event, products launching, and corporates gathering in a few cities such as Jakarta, Bali, Medan, Padang, etc. They performed in Television Talkshows like Kick Andy, 8-11 show, and the music show called Radio Show in TvOne. Performing regularly in Red White Lounge has led them into the opportunity to perform in some huge events such as Java Soulnation, Java Jazz, and Jazz Traffic Surabaya. They were involved in a movie soundtrack called “Sokola Rimba” produced by Miles Films. They were also the featured artists in one of the singles from Barry Likumahua Project’s album called “Inner Light”
After gathering some materials, in October 1st 2015, they finally released their very first album entitled “Music Eveyday”. The “Music Everyday” is a statement that no body in this world can live a life without music. Period. The musical concept on this album is “a little bit of everything” a touch of folk, jazz, blues, urban and ethnic are presented in a “tight” and “groovy” minimalist music arrangements. The thought behind this album which was poured down into lyrics is “positive attitude”. With a brand new spirit, hopefully this first album is a great starting point for them to come up with another artworks in the future.
