After graduating from college, Baron moved to Jakarta, forming the band GIGI with Armand Maulana (vocals), Dewa Budjana (guitar), Ronald Fristianto (drums), and Thomas Ramdhan (bass).

Baron played on GIGI’s first two albums, Angan (1994) and Dunia (1995). In September 1995, Baron left Gigi to pursue a degree in Communication Arts at the New York Institute of Technology in the United States.

Baron re-initiated a band called NO! in 2000, this time with Eel (former drummer of ADA Band), Adi Dharmawan and base Donny Suhendra. NO! Band did not last long and changed its name to Baron Band, with a change in formation.

In March 2016, Aria Baron returned to Gigi. Not as personnel or guitarist, Aria Baron strengthened the management team. But he refused to be called Gigi’s manager, because there was a team working to take care of the band.
