Band 4 Nada

February 4, 2011

Aloysius Riyanto formed Band 4 Nada in 1966. They were one of the first and more popular instrumentalia bands in Indonesia. Riding on the crest of their fame, Remaco Records quickly recruited them to be the backing band for various singers to jumpstart their careers; and many went on to become very successful like Titiek Sandhora, Ernie Djohan, Lilis Suryani and Pattie Bersaudara.

The band were: Aloysius Riyanto (organ & guitar), Eddy Syam (guitar), Nana Sumarno (bass guitar), M. Sanni (drums). A. Riyanto and most of the members left to form Favorites Group in 1972. Syafii Glomboh took over as the new organist for Band 4 Nada. Aloysius Riyanto went on to become one of the top songwriters of the country.
