|They used traditional instruments such as the gamelan and that huge gong and that drum business|
|Think they were 2nd in regionals. I don't know|
|I love this one look at his cheeks and ears.|
Then what do you know, SMAN Jakarta 62 won regionals and went on to the nationals the week after this, also a Wednesday.
|Starting from the left - the first third fifth and sixth are in my class. If you thought I was gonna say their names or something - ohwell hahahaha. I crack myself up sometimes.|
- Semarang in Jawa Tengah (aka Central Java) were the first up. And I was like woah very rock-ish and the singers did that dance where the guitar and bass players play and they just have to move around and shake a bit until it's time to sing again. They had it down. Also they had a cowbell - and I was like - I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell. Go Semarang.
- Sulawasi and Aceh had amazing voices. They must have been crazy amazing because I only wrote down that their voices were amazing.
- Bali ooh Bali everyone was waiting for you. I mean you're BALI, different religion and culture probably one of the most famous places in Indonesia. And you did not disappoint. Very modern soft rock (I'm not really sure what that means. But it sounds like the right description)
- And I wrote down Sumatra so I don't know. Some other group from Sumatra was great. Yes I took notes during the show. And it was for you all - that's love.
So that was my Musikalisasi Puisi experience. I think my school came in 6th in Nationals which mathmatically makes them so-so for all of Indonesia but I really was very impressed. Everyone asked me if we have this in America. I don't really know but we should - it's so creative and interesting.
|Just to show I was actually there. this was friday with classmate and two teachers but of classes I don't take.|
Also whoever gets my quote they get sooooo much more love. I'm counting on you.
