SOUNDSEKERTA is back for 2018 and its this weekend. You don't want to miss your chance to be at this annual event that is a celebration of Indonesian music and culture for Melbournians. The Monash University Indonesian Student Association (ISA) will present Soundsekerta 2018 “Serenade for The Nation”, a music festival that showcases the great country of Indonesia, home to many of the students.
Soundsekerta has been running since 2007. The concept for the festival has changed throughout the years: it started as a comedy talk show, then evolving itself again and again to display art, music, food, but most of all, culture!
This year the event will feature two of Indonesia's shining stars Tulus and Raisa, both whom, dominate in the pop industry and have for some time.
Just two weeks ago Tulus dropped a new MV for his track Labrin, its has already gained 813,310 views (as of September 21st, 2018). The track is a catchy pop tune with an uplifting vibe that will get you up, out of your seat and ready for tomorrows big show in Melbourne.
