Just as the rainbow that appears after the rain, or the flowers are blooming after the snow melts. That’s what I felt after took the IELTS exam on last Saturday. Exam that made me and maybe some of my friends like being haunted by terror during the last few weeks. Thank God, none of us who have to get sick and hospitalized, hahaha! Actually, I’m so nervous but I was determined to do the best I can and get through the exam as well as a prince have to fight a giant dragon to save a princess from the old witch.
Now, the rainbow of that Saturday was a ticket of musical event held in Jogja, Jazztraffic. A few days ago, I had been planning to go there after the exam, but rain down fairly heavy on that day with a long enough duration. I’m so worried about that.
On that night, I enjoyed jazz music and moved back and forth from stage A to stage B. The first performer, Kirana Big Band, successfully bring some popular jazz songs instrumentally or with a singer. The next performer was Kayon, a group of three Indonesia’s biggest jazz musicians, Indra Lesmana, Gilang Ramadhan, and Pra Budidharma.
Gugun Blues Shelter hit the stage at the next session, their blues and rock & roll made some boys squeezed into the front row and sing along. Move to the next stage, there was Andien, who always look beautiful. Yeah, she knows how to dress simple but look amazing.
Save the best for last! Maybe that’s the reason why Maliq & d’Essentials become the closing band. As usual, they appears very attractive. It was so hard to not sing along and sway. Surprisingly, at the last song they pull some front row audiences to go on stage. Pilihanku and Drama Romantika are my two favourite songs by them.
I’m not in a position to let you know that I am a fan of jazz music. I listen to all genres. I just want to be able to “treat my self” reasonably, especially after struggling with something that makes me tired
phisically and mentally.
