Sandhy Sondoro

Sandhy Sondoro is a tasty international artist from Indonesia who has lived in many countries of the world as a performing/working musician and recording artist. This first song below almost sounds like it's starting off in English, but is actually being sung in Indonesian. Sandhy fluently speaks and has recorded many songs in English as in the second video. Whilst he has become a important name in Indonesian music (signed to Sony Music Indonesia) and has a strong following in Germany and some markets in the EU, he has a ways to go before he is a well known name in the U.S.A., but he has the potential to impress a wide audience. He covers a few genres. Some of his songs emit a soul that reminds a little of Michael McDonald, John Melencamp and an occasional hint of Tracy Chapman. He is not ripping them off or anything like that, he is all original, but he hits a certain soul vein. Enjoy! GC


Particularly dig this recording of Sandhy performing his original song live on Indonesian TV, singing in English where he shows what a real soulful cat he is, simply sitting on a stool with a acoustic guitar and crooning his ass off with no pomp or circumstance.
