Rheta Arheta was born in West Java, Indonesia in 1983. From an early age, the pocket rocket had undeniable musical talent, performing on guitar alongside her Aunty as a 5-year-old for an Indonesian Independence Day parade.
She began her career as a professional singer travelling throughout the Indonesian archipelago from one island to the next, performing at bars and clubs and doing the tough yards honing her unique style and stagecraft for seven hard years.
See Rheta’s collaboration with Rico for the Bali Musicians Appeal
Her popularity and peer respect has her hosting a “jam night” at The Orchard where local and international musicians go to check out who has the chops to play next to each other, and offering a high-energy outlet to make Monday nights, traditionally the muso’s night off in most venues, an outlet to hang and play together in front of a (very lucky) live audience.
