When I started
As a little boy Dony always knew he was going to do something with music. When he got the chance to do that, he took the opportunity with open arms. His music career started in 2008. He then sang in popular bands such as ‘Avion Boys’ and ‘One Man’. By doing many shows and going on tour he gained a lot of knowledge and experience as a musician. Not only is he a good singer, but he’s also good on the guitar. After five years of being part of a band Dony decided to go solo as an urban artist. He is a go-getter, who doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer and will keep on striving for success.
Chardony Strijk, born in Suriname, is better known as Dony. When he was a teenager he decided to move to Holland to study. As a son of a mother who was a mentor in the church choir and a singing and acting father, music was a familiar thing for Dony. Because of his love for both Suriname and Holland the artist is always focused on bringing his music to fans in both countries. Although he lives, works and makes music in Holland, Dony will never forget where he comes from. That’s why he will always represent his birthplace in his songs.
