Indonesian soloist Pamungkas serenaded We The Fest concert-goers on the second day of the event at JIExpo Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, on Saturday.

The rising star from Jakarta was the last performer at Another Stage, a stage dedicated for local talents.

He opened his session with "Modern Love", a relatively upbeat number from his album Flying Solo.

"Flying Solo" came next, followed by the ballad "Sorry", "Kenangan Manis" (Sweet Memory) and "One Only".

Pamungkas closed the show with his most famous song, "I Love You but I'm Letting Go".

The 25-year-old singer started playing drums at the age of 8 as a form of therapy for the partial loss of hearing in his left ear.

He fell in love with music instantly and taught himself to play guitar and piano. During his teenage years, he wrote songs and performed, urging his parents to let him be homeschooled so that he could focus on his music.

Under the name Pamungkas, he focused on creating a fusion of electronic and folk music with a hint of sad lyrics.

He recorded and produced his LP, Walk the Talk, which was released in June 2018. His sophomore album Flying Solo was released earlier this year. (kes)
