Hendarso, better known as Darso is a Sundanese singer born in Bandung, Indonesia on August 12, 1945. In the early 1960s, Darso started his career by joining “Nada Karya Band” together with Lilis Suryani and Tetty Kadi. They were playing pure pop song, instead of playing ethnic song. During this difficult and unstable political situation, his musical activity almost come to a dead end. Back in a few years, Darso rose to prominence for pioneering calung sunda with pop touch and catchy sound.
