A shout out to them reading?
Hi to everyone!

You will now know me as Koko Kaina’s guitarist but apart from being her faithful sidekick I am a musician/music lover who wouldn’t be caught dead doing anything else. Started playing guitar at the age of 13 and have gone to explore other facets of music such as playing the drums, bass, and even DJing!

When I was in Singapore I joined a lot of bands in highschool, one of them being Wakak where we somehow managed to get 2nd place for the Yamaha Asian Beat competition!

After moving to KL I explored the world of DJing and have done so in a few clubs and house parties, one of them being Bar Blonde in Heritage Row. But on a fateful month (I can’t remember which one exactly) of 2007 I met Koko Kaina in a friend’s house party, was told that she was a musical godess/genius and agreed to play the guitar with her. We played for a while as Flat 7 but because of my school she had to fly solo. But I will support her nonetheless, rocking by her side in every single performance.

Koko Kaina rules!

Cheers guys.

Writer's Note
: A visit to his YouTube confirmed that Krishna is very versatile indeed + I could see one awesome drum set at the corner of his videos.

*green with envy*
