Cakra Khan is Indonesia’s newest pop wonder. Since his debut into the music realm last year he has picked up an astonishing 3 awards – Best New Artist, Best New Song and Best Solo Pop Artist – at this year’s Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards, a feat that was unexpected by many and that very few artists are blessed to achieve. To add to his overwhelming success story, he has only ever released two singles.

We spoke to Cakra on the back of his AMI wins about the new pressures he now faces. He also teases us about the excitement of what is to come in his upcoming debut album and explains why its release was held off.
