Challem’s music speaks to many due to its honesty;
it feels as though his music can be read like a diary.
Challem was born in Zoeterwoude (The Netherlands) in 1994 and he is on a journey to explore life.
His emotions, voice, movement, and reactions are communicated through his piano. For Challem it is an instinctive phase where thoughts reach out and lucidly guide him.
New music is issued in 2 EP’s with simple piano; wistful trombone, cello arrangements, and improvisation. With his newest single ‘Decor’, he invites the listener to sit back and listen closely.
Challem graduated from the prestigious Codarts in Rotterdam and is playing and recording ever since. In 2021 he created an ‘all senses experience’ with and commissioned by Joep Beving; a great inspirator.

‘Aparigraha’ is the soundtrack that emphasizes that you need to take life as it is. A stunning and peaceful sound due to the mix by Sam Jones at Studio Joneski (Annelie, Jeangu Macrooy) and mastering by D. Ruffini (Wisseloord Studios). Artwork created by originator Sanne Bovenberg.
