AGE 38 I WEST NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY I INDONESIA
Music changed Ferdy Talan’s life when he was growing up in Jakarta; it led him to New York, where he’s embarked on a decade-long journey of self-discovery, breaking through societal and self-imposed boundaries and limitations. While working fulltime as an agent for Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors, he’s developing his artistic craft, taking regular lessons with Prof. Zitta Zohar and competing in amateur piano competitions: in 2017, he won in St. Petersburg and Boston, and placed second in Washington, D.C. As to why he’s entered the 2022 Cliburn: “Music is my inner language that I deeply understood from a very young age. A bridge for my soul and spirit to the world. Today, more than ever before, we are in dire need for Artists to connect to humanity at large.” His interests outside of real estate and the piano include International cuisine, architecture, and interior design.
