Real Name:
Javad Butah
Profile:
J-Bu is Javad Butah, a Los Angeles-based musician, composer, producer, and educator. Javad’s unique and innovative perspective on music can be traced to his Romani roots, his studies under various tabla masters, as well as his formal conservatory education. Javad holds a Masters Degree in Music from the California Institute of the Arts.

Javad has toured for over 20 years, performing as a solo artist as well as accompanying world-renowned musicians in distinguished venues domestically as well as abroad. The Los Angeles Times has called Javad “…a young, flashy, spectacular tabla player…” and the New York Times described Javad as being “…in virtuosic form…”

As an educator, Javad has built successful music programs based on not only teaching the practical applications of music production using the latest technology, but also integrating music theory, which he believes broadens their knowledge of the creative process.

Javad uses Ableton Live to create a blend of music that borrows from his love of both classical world music as well as contemporary sounds and techniques. As a brand manager for Ableton, Javad tours the United States giving lectures and demonstrations.
