As Different Worlds Collide, Gazing On The Same Star

The namesake of Joko in Berlin is a homage to the band's background as a product of 2 cultures assimilating together.

Joko; a typical Javanese name, is a representation of the band's location of origin which is Java island. Berlin is a representation of the strong European influence in which the band gets their musical ideas.


Formed in 2016 by Popo Fauza, Fran Rabit and Mellita Sarah;

Joko in Berlin started out as a statement of musical exploration not bound by boundaries and limitation. Forgetting and unlearning the concept of genre which restricts the passion to indulge in the deepest aspect of musical creativity; the trio synergized to overcome a challenge. A challenge of adjusting and conjoining each of the trio's musical ideals in order to create a unique sound that is Joko in Berlin.   

In the middle of 2019, Marlond Telvord joined as the band's drummer adding his experience and style of drumming. The new addition established Joko in Berlin as a musical quartet with an unrelenting commitment to explore deeper into a limitless and infinite musical experimentation.
