Ras Muhaman was born in Indonesia's capital Jakarta, but moved with his parents to US in the early 1990s. 

He first began performing reggae as a teenager living in the Queens borough of New York, and while still in high school formed his first band. He describes his type of reggae as "dancehall" reggae - a style that combines reggae and hip-hop.
He has become a musical ambassador of sorts for reggae in South East Asia - on his latest album he worked with musicians from Senegal, Kenya and Norway.
But his idols are still Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, performers who were unafraid to let politics influence their music. He says he chose reggae because it suits his voice and style, but also because it can convey a message too.
"Reggae music is always the voice of the people. Whatever is happening, I feel like I have to sing about it," he explains.

Few months ago he released album 'Salam'. "Songs are sung in English and Jamaican patois with a distinctive conscious messaging that is very relatable. Linguistic and cultural education are explored with the title tune Salam a typical greeting in Indonesia, with its roots in Islam, and its simple message meaning “peace”.
