Ride the waves with The Panturas as they bring the beach to you with their vintage sound and surf rock melodies from albums Ombak Banyu Asmara and Mabuk Laut.
The Panturas is a surf rock band from a place nowhere near the ocean—Jatinangor in Indonesia— comprising Abyan (vocals and guitar), Rizal (guitar), Bagus Patria (bass) and Surya (drums). Formed in early 2016 and inspired by the likes of The Ventures, Dick Dale and Eka Sapta, The Panturas brings summer ocean tunes reminiscent of music from the ‘70s with their own contemporary twist. Their first single Fisherman’s Slut grabbed the attention of audiences and quickly swept them into the spotlight.
Since the release of their first album Mabuk Laut in 2018 and its launch party in Bandung and Jakarta, The Panturas has sailed across various places, performing at micro-gigs to major festivals in Indonesia.
Their second album, Ombak Banyu Asmara (2021) took The Panturas to places they have never been before. Just like a ritual, they created another showcase for their new release under the name of Wahana Ombak Banyu Asmara in Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Jakarta. The Panturas successfully presented these sold-out shows with more than 3,000 audience members in attendance, organised independently without supporting sponsors. The band continues to make waves in Southeast Asia and beyond, bringing their Nusantara surf-rock sound to shores everywhere.
