The biggest annual Indonesian concert that has been in Melbourne for 13 years, SOUNDSEKERTA, is back on 28 September in Melbourne Town Hall! The theme this year, “Mosaic of Nation”, showcases the power of music by bringing different cultural, ethnic, religious, and linguistic pieces of Indonesia together into a beautiful mosaic. This event provides a sense of nostalgia to Indonesians that are missing home while giving a unique experience for Melbournians to experience Indonesian music. This year, SOUNDSEKERTA has three artists, not two like previous concerts! The three amazing artists are Tompi, RAN, and Yura Yunita.
