Make It Possible – Bright young stars Ninda Felina and Ardhito Pramono tell us how to be exceptional in Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring ’19 collection
Jazz musician Ardhito Pramono is probably having the time of his life at the moment. His latest single “Superstar” is playing everywhere, his performance at last month’s Java Jazz received countless praise and it certainly marked a good start for 2019 for the young musician.
Pramono was still in college when he began to make cover videos of other artists such as A.J. Rafael and Justin Bieber before starting to record his own materials. After he graduated, Pramono went straight into corporate life, working at a Chinese entertainment company. A few years behind the desk, he felt it was not what he was looking for. So he quit – and thus begun his musical journey. Pramono decided to focus on jazz, a genre quite rare for someone of his generation. Yet, many love his works – and he has ammased quite the following. When asked about what he hope to achieve, he humbly replied: “Hopefully through my songs everyone can relate or even be motivated to go through every obstacle.”
The Free Spirited
Ninda Felina started her career as a model in her teen years. When she discovered her passion for music developing more and more, she knew she finally found her calling. She is a free spirited woman who never hesitates to try anything new and commit to it.
One of her tracks even placed 15th from 200 iTunes top tracks in the Netherland Electronic Chart. Other than being a DJ, she also actively volunteers with Greenpeace since 2014 and together they developed a project called Save Our Sounds. The objective of collaborative project is to raise awareness for the future of Indonesia’s forests through music created from the sounds of animals in the forest. She wishes to connect people with the environment through her music and raise awareness on a larger scale. Her hopes for the future is to inspire people to participate in voicing their concern for the environment, although changes have been done little by little. With the right support, her positive attitude will make waves towards great changes.
