Mbah Surip (real name: Urip Achmad Ariyanto) was an Indonesian reggae/pop singer. He lived most of his life in poverty and started out his career as a street performer. Things seem to get better for him when in 2009, he became a rising star when his single "Tak Gendong" (Translated "I Will Carry You" in Indonesian) became a huge hit in Indonesia. Sadly, his career was cut short when he died in the very same year of heart failure.
