Artist Information


Indonesian born and Singapore based, 21 year old Vanako is an independent singer songwriter making waves in the local music scene. Blending pop, jazz, and orchestral influences in a refreshing, yet familiar way, Vanako's warmth and sincerity shines through her songs. She especially enjoys exploring the themes of learning from the past, cherishing relationships in the present, and embracing the uncertain, yet hopeful future.

Her recent releases this, ily and If Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist have gained traction with people from all walks of life for their authenticity, with 60,000 combined streams on Spotify.

Vanako's endearing personality and simple, yet magnetic charisma is evident through her live shows, with notable performances at Spark The Change Fest 2023, Foreword at Esplanade, and Beerfest Asia 2023.

Having just turned 21, Vanako hopes to continue documenting her journey beyond girlhood and into adulting through her music, and by sharing her songs with others, she hopes to bring some comfort and joy to her listeners.
