DIRGAHAYU
From the ashes of Akta Angkasa and Custom Daisy, Dirgahayu first emerged in July 2013 as an instrumental trio based in Kuala Lumpur. This initial line-up had Wan Azry on bass, Afifi Rahim on guitar and Zulhezan on drums. The band first came to prominence with the release of their single 'Bahawasa-nya' – a 4-minute of organised chaos, robust guitar attack and exuberant drumming punctuated by intense, abrupt transitions. This sonic attack was beautifully captured in the music video – a staccato-like rhythm of stop-motion filming from a god’s-eye view, which helped the band garner compelling positive reviews from all over the region. Subsequently roping in Seikan Sawaki in April 2014 for drumming duties and Zulhezan moving back to guitar, Dirgahayu continues their journey to push any musical possibilities and dedicated sound, this time around as a complete quartet. Since 2015, they've extensively toured several Asian countries e.g. Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, and of course throughout their own homeland, Malaysia. However in mid 2016, Seikan decided to pursue his career in Japan and leave the band back to the original formation as a trio.
