The Archipelago Singers is a multi-award-winning Indonesian mixed choir which was formed out of supreme admiration for choral music. The choir strives to work as a platform for delivering the spirit of “unity in diversity” through choral music. The Archipelago Singers were the first choir in the history of this great archipelagic state to bring home an international Grand Prize and have since become a reputed institution of widespread national and international acclaim by consecutively winning first prizes at international choir competitions in Germany, Spain, Philippines, Bulgaria, and France. Most recently they took home the Grand Prize, 1st Prize in the Classical Mixed Choir Category, 1st Prize in the Pop/A Acapella Category, as well as Best Conductor Prize at Busan International Choral Festival and Competition in South Korea.
Ega O. Azarya started his musical career as a singer, having studied vocal technique with Ivan Yohan͵ Dody Soetanto͵ Dorcas Soenaryo͵ and Joseph Kristanto Pantioso. He sang in some of the best Aisan choirs including the Asian Youth Choir under the direction of Chifuru Matsubara and won numerous international awards (La Fabbrica del Canto in Italy, the 45th International Choir Competition in Austria, Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in the UK, and Florilège Vocal de Tours in France and the coveted 2nd Overall Prize in one of Asia’s most prestigious choral competitions, the Takarazuka International Chamber Chorus Contest in Japan). Having gained ample experience as a choir member, he was ready to take the next step in his career. He studied choral and orchestral conducting with Tommy Prabowo. Ega’s extensive involvement in a wide range of choral music activities has won him widespread acclaim as one of Indonesian most talented young conductors.
