Tarawangsawelas was formed in 2011 by Teguh Permana, as tarawangsa player, and Wisnu Ridwana as jentreng player.

Tarawangsawelas was initially formed as a platform for tarawangsa enthusiasts. Tarawangsawelas consists of two words: Tarawangsa and Sawelas (eleven). Eleven refers to the year of 2011 when Teguh and Wisnu met at their final year in Indonesian Art and Culture Institute of Bandung (ISBI).
