Iwan Fals

Iwan Fals

Iwan Fals (born 3 September 1961 in Jakarta as Virgiawan Listanto) is an Indonesian singer and songwriter. He has released several dozen albums of mostly solo guitar-based material in a style said to be influenced by Bob Dylan. He is considered a popular singer in the country. He is known as a social observer and protest singer, although he has sung many songs about love and romance.

He is married (his wife's name is Rosanna) with three children : Galang Rambu Anarki, Annisa Cikal Rambu Basae and Rayya Rambu Robbani. His eldest son, Galang Rambu Anarki, died in April 1997 of asthma, with speculation of a morphine overdose [http://www.asiaweek.com/asiaweek/97/0509/feat7.html] . Iwan Fals had previously written an eponymously titled song for him on his birth in 1982.

He starred in the 1985 movie, "Damai Kami Sepanjang Hari", directed by Sophan Sophiaan, now a senior figure in the Indonesian Democratic Party – Struggle.
