Other rehearsed songs, actual performances and fellow angklung players

So these are the other songs we performed for Indonesian Day 2017. These are not the actual performance but is the rehearsal the day before the event.

Songs are Jessie J - Flashlight and Nat King Cole - L.O.V.E

Regarding the actual performance during the event, I only found a video that's very short. 


But hey, my hair was nice

And we, as angklung players, are very cohesive as a group



I was elated that we did it and I'm thankful that we ever met! 😀 (gak full team :(, unfortunately)








Indonesian Day 2017- Medley (full version)

When we were performing this song yesterday, we stopped midway because people were singing along and we got confused so we ended up singing along instead  in case anyone is curious how the medley sounds like in Angklung only, this is the video. The playing was not perfect because we were still in rehearsal in this video. Even we had somebody taking over because one of the player didn't come (The most right next to me).
Enjoy the epic messiness 
The song is a medley of regional Indonesian songs from Maluku island : Nona Manis- Ayo mama- Rasa Sayange

Gadis Melati

Gadis Melati

Siapa gadis berselendang putih itu?
Yang berpapar seri dan berkalung rangkaian melati
Yang cahayanya meredup dan tersedu-sedu
Menghitam disinar sabit yang sirna setelah matahari

Nyawa untuk nyawa, ujar mereka
Sang kuasa kami bela, ujar tuan tanah
Penguasa cukup berkuasa, ujarnya
Apadaya kau berpantang amanah?

Kakinya melayang berpapasan dengan surau tua
Tampaknya adalah api dari gereja tetangga
Dan kuil-kuil yang tanah-rata, porak-poranda
Terserak penggalan filsuf dan penggalan berhala

Wahai saudara sedarah
Tak berpeluhkah kau marah?
