Refusing to conform to common pathway of people his age, Barry Likumahuwa took the courage of pursuing his passion in jazz music. With all kinds of musical instruments available in his house to explore and having the skills to play all of them, Barry finally chose one that he felt most in love with, the bass.

Winning one competition after another, composed, produced, and arranged songs for artists such as Glenn Fredly, Ello, and Tompi, finally Barry decided to start his own in 2008 with the Barry Likumahuwa Project and music that exudes burning passion and character. Amidst the overwhelming rules and theories of music, he chooses to rebel and instead follow the intuition of his heart in strumming his bass and composing and arranging his music, while proudly calling himself "anak jazz jalanan". A maverick in the jazz world, Barry defines and leads the emerging young generation of jazz musicians.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
