Sunan Drajat was born in 1470 CE. He was one of the Wali Songo, along with his father Sunan Ampel and his brother Sunan Bonang.

He was a descendant of Majapahit nobility in Tuban and a Chinese captain named Gan Eng Cu.[1]

Like his brother, he composed gamelan songs as a means for spreading Islamic teachings on Java. One example was the tune Gending 'Pangkur'.[2]

In 1502 CE, he built the masjid in the village of Jelag in Paciran (north of Surabaya) [3]
