Rising star of Classical and Jazz in Indonesia Nita Aartsen will be performing at the up-coming Borneo Jazz 2012.

She has held the post of State Pianist for 15 years and had the privilege of playing for world dignitaries including the president of the United States.

Nita, in her own indomitable style has taken from the more formal Classical genre and has turned it into feet-tapping, hip-swaying Latino music with a generous helping of Jazz. The result is fun and enjoyable.

Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Nita started learning the piano at five in which she attended the Moscow Conservatory learning Contemporary Jazz.

She also lived and worked in Holland for a while, working with Dutch musicians in the studio and also at live performances.

She slowly built a strong foundation in Jakarta which launch herself into the world stage hence allowing her to perform at the annual Java Jazz Festival.

She will be making her debut in Malaysia on the 8 and 9 May at a preview to be held at Taylors University Lakeside Campus at Subang Jaya, Selangor before taking the stage at the Borneo Jazz 2012.

The Borneo Jazz 2012 main shows will take place in Miri from 11-12 May 2012 and Nita will be performing on the 1st night.

Tickets are still available online and also at all Visitors Information Centres in Kuching, Sibu & Miri.
