The Real Wonder Of the World (WOW) Concert was held on 15 December 2011 at Ballroom, Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta. I got the invitation for the concert when I attended the Blogger party ON|OFF 2011. I got 2 invitations, so I invited Sinthya to join me in this concert. Apparently, I also met with other friends in the show, Lidya, Adhie, Ainel, and Idfi 🙂
The show started from 6:30PM until 10:00PM.
The show was held by Marketeers Magazine and supported by MarkPlus & Co. There’re many stars on the show, such as Lea Simanjuntak, Elfa’s Singers, Seruti, Ivan Nestorman, Zaneta Naomi, and Bayang Pasir (Fauzan Ja’Far). The emcee of the show was Duma Riris.
They’ve distributed a booklet with the complete list of the Real WOW. And if you remember my trip to Banten Lama, my friends and I actually got that from this list. Banten Lama is listed in number #17
Other places that makes into top 50:
To be listed in the Real WOW, the tourism spot has to be:
1. One of a Kind
2. Local Wisdom, has a strong local culture
3. Human Spirit, has a story that upholds humanitarian values and sustainability
The songs in the concert were all traditional songs, and also there’s one traditional dance 🙂
Myself and my friends took some pictures of the performers, and recorded the performance. So here are some pictures and the videos of the concert 🙂
They also performed with Lea Simanjuntak at their second appearance.
Here’s the clip of their performance with Lea Simanjuntak
My favourite singer! I always amaze when she sings! She can reach high note easily 🙂
And here’s a clip of her performance that night, and thanks to Sinthya with her stable hands 😀
She’s young, and talented. She’s even being selected to the ‘Born To Sing Asia‘ contest, where she performed live with David Foster on his HITMAN tour. NICE ONE!! 🙂
I like her voice and singing style. She sang like a pesindhen 🙂
Here’s a clip of her performance that night:
Tari Saman (Tari = Dance)
Tari Saman is originated from Aceh. Below I put a clip of their performance. And see it by yourself 🙂
Well that’s what I covered for the show. Actually there’s more, but we left before the show ended 🙂
