Indoband Ketjil2 from Doetichem – Holland – Keroncong; Indonesian Nostalgian; Country & Western; Indo-Rock. ….. Itje Theresia Beverloo Schra – Singer; John Koning – Keyoard / Singer; Robert Schra – Guitar; Emiel Rooze – Guitar; Peter Brandt – Bas.
I like the way the singer sing the kroncong songs. The right expression of the melody, tone and clarity. The band, despite playing modern instruments succeeded in bringing out the kroncong feel to the songs.
I think she sings the song ‘Bandung Selatan Diwaktu Malam’ (below) very well.
Also ‘Bunga Anggerik’
and ‘Bandar Jakarta’
plus a good rendition of ‘Rangkaian Melati’
The band’s rendition and her interpretation of the Indonesian traditional song Waktu Potong Padi is a fresh interpretation of the song. Instead of the same melody for every segment she gives the third verse a different melody turning it into a chorus..
Compare this live version with the classic version recorded by Ming Luhulima and his Amboina Serenaders.
