BIO

[English below]

Tidak gampang memberi label kepada Nova Ruth. Baik dari genre ketika dia bermain musik, atau secara profesi yang dia jalani. Nova mengekspresikan apa yang dia suka dengan caranya dan dengan pengalaman yang dia kenyam. Saat ini, selain tetap bekerja sama dengan Filastine dalam membangun pertunjukan Arka Kinari, Nova Ruth meluncurkan album solonya berjudul Napak Tilas, sembari meneruskan keberaniannya menulis buku tentang perjalanannya menantang perbatasan.

Bisa dibilang, Nova adalah pelaku seni yang tidak mau dibatasi. Di Malang, sejak 2011, Nova mendirikan Legipait sebagai tempat ngopi, sekaligus pojok ekspresi bagi seniman dan budayawan.

Nova mencintai akar tempat di mana dia lahir, menghormati ibu bumi, dan menjadi warga negara global sambil tidak lupa mengangkat isu-isu lokal tentang lingkungan dan ketidak adilan yang dia lihat dan rasakan.

It is not easy to label Nova Ruth. She decided not to stick with one genre when she plays music, nor choosing one profession in life. Nova expresses her experiences in the way she witnesses the world freely, on her journey. At the moment, while continuing her work with her life partner, Filastine, building a performance of Arka Kinari, Nova gathered her courage to release her solo album, Napak Tilas, while maintaining her promise writing a book about her journey challenging borders. It can be said that Nova is an artist who doesn’t want to be contained by borders.

She founded Legipait in Malang East Java in 2011, a place to have a coffee as well as a corner of expression for artists and culturally active and aware people.

Nova loves her roots that are in the place she was born, she pays respect to mother earth, as well as being a global citizen, but she does not forget to raise environmental and injustice issues which she observes and she experiences in the place of her origin.
