A wonderkid from Bandung got his shot to perform a single show at Java Jazz Festival 2010. David Manuhutu is still 17, but his skill is complete, just like a senior jazz pianist. He can play just about any shape of jazz. From ragtime, swing, standards to bop, which might be difficult for a boy in his age, in his hands we could get the best of them with feelings.

Last November we saw the inauguration night for David Manuhutu at the “Touch of 17” show in Bandung.  And we are happy to see him going further and further. Just like that time, David wow-ed the audience, showing how ready he is to enter the wonderful world of jazz.
