Melyna PURBA

Pianist and composer from Indonesia. She began her musical journey with classical notes, seamlessly transitioning to explore more to pop and cinematic melodies. With over a decade of professional piano artistry, she enchants as a soloist, playing with ensemble and orchestra. Her compositions mostly inspired about feelings, expressing emotions beyond the reach of words in various colors.

Composing Music for Advertisement for Development Bank of West Java and Banten, Independance Day Indonesia Melyna Purba shines as a skilled composer, lending her musical prowess to amplify the promotional campaigns of the Development Bank of West Java and Banten. Her melodic creations not only enhance these advertisements but also extend to the heart of Indonesia’s IndependenceDay celebrations, where her music becomes a vibrant expression of national pride and unity. Through her unique compositions, Melyna artfully merges the worlds of finance and cultural celebration, leaving an indelible mark on these significant events.

Playing for Sounddrifters

Sound Drifters Berlin is a group of musicians and artists that wants to defend one of the last free spaces in the city: Berlin’s waterways. In a world that becomes smaller and smaller, where room for art and culture becomes scarce, we believe in a future on the water. Right in the hectic centre of the city, the river and the canals form a different world where new artistic and social experiences become possible. It is this last unclaimed space that we want to reinvent as a safe, free and inclusive place for encounter.


Melyna is not only a performer but also a creative force behind her works. She is the composer and the visionary behind the song and music video "Rescued," for which she arranged the entire concept and oversaw its production. This work highlights her multifaceted talent as a composer, arranger, and producer, bringing her unique musical ideas to life.


Melyna Purba’s musical expertise is further enriched by her significant orchestral experiences. In 2013, she traveled to Budapest to perform for the Indonesian government, a testament to her international recognition and her ability to represent her country on a global stage. Additionally, her involvement with Infinito Singers since 2014 adds to her rich choral and orchestral experiences. Infinito Singers, known for its passion for choir music and diversity in singing various repertoires, provides Melyna with a platform to explore the beauty of choir singing and the unity it brings. Her role in this group complements her individual accomplishments, showcasing her versatility as a musician who thrives both as a solo artist and as part of an ensemble.
