- Maudy Ayunda
Actress, singer-songwriter, and activist for education and youth-related causes: 23-year-old Maudy Ayunda has already packed many impressive achievements into her life – including graduating with cum-laude honours in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University and singing on the Indonesian soundtrack of Disney’s Moana a couple of years ago.
2. Niki Zefanya
“R&B princess.” “First Lady of 88rising.” “Indonesia’s rising star.”
Ever since Niki Zefanya signed to Sean Miyashiro’s upstart record label in 2017, the labels – some innocuously coined, others weighted with breathless expectation – have come fast and furious.
