ASTRONIA's bassist (Amy) was also the bassist of Chick-en-Katsu, a famous cover band in Japanese local community in Jakarta. Together with him, members of ASTRONIA finally used the name AKATSUKI and started their existence in Jakarta Japanese Community
The member used the name AKATSUKI because all of them loved to watch NARUTO -a high rating Japanese animation series (anime).
AKATSUKI started with Aki (Lukman) as the vocalist but unfortunatelly he had to leave AKATSUKI because of personal matters. After a long and exhausted auditon and selection, AKATSUKI found Dicky who had not only a good voice but also perfect chemistry with other members.
