This organization was founded in Jakarta on December 19th 1995 with the purpose of accommodating UPNVJ students in creativity, specifically in music.
During the academic period of 1992/1993, a band group was established in UPN "Veteran" Jakarta and they regularly performed in music events off-campus.
