Jakarta. Singer Andien celebrated her 15 years in music with a solo concert at the Jakarta Convention Center on Tuesday.
During the show, Andien said she wanted the concert to showcase her flaws as a human being, and it reflected to the art direction of the stage which looked unpolished.
"I don't want you to see the stage. This is me and I am a little absurd, please enjoy the night," said Andien, as quoted by CNN Indonesia.
The show kicked off at 8.30 p.m. with the singer dancing to "Aku di Sini Untukmu" by Dewa 19, a song she frequently covered during the early stages of a her career in 2000.
Fashion is a big element in the show. The 30-year old prepared several costumes, passing on the mic to guest stars Teza Sumendra, GAC, The Cash, Yovie Widianto and Llyod Pop with Kevin Julio while changing outfits.
The set list is a mix of cover songs, from the '90 hit "J. A. P." by Sheila on 7 to Andien's recent songs from her new album "Let It Be My Way." She also dedicated "Selamat Jalan Kekasih" to her late producer and teacher Elfa Secioria.
"He was such an influential figure in my career," Andien said, as quoted by Muvila. "Without Bang Elfa, there wont be Andien the singer today,"
Actors Tora Sudiro and Ringgo Agus Rahman and singers Vincent Rompies and Desta Mahendra crashed her show with some comic relief as well as a surprise performance of "Let It Be My Way" in a punk rock arrangement.
"All the sweat paid off," Andien said in an interview after the show.
"The concert started with good intentions, so I hope everyone went home with kindness in their heart,"
