One of Riki’s most impressive feats during his time at CCM was learning to play guitar left-handed simply because he prefers the distinctive look of lefties like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. After completing his Certificate Program in Voice Performance at CCM, Riki returned to his home country of Indonesia, where he quickly found success combining American pop-rock with traditional Indonesian gamelan music. In April 2017, Riki performed with the Yogyakarta Symphony Orchestra in the “Gamelan Rules: Rock Gamelan Orchestra” concert of his own design, conducted by respected Indonesian maestro Guntur Nur Puspito.
