This is assigment from Miss Silvana
This video tells about a man proposes marriage to the woman. He uses different way to propose her. He gives a clue in their every  favorite place. He reminds her about special moments like  first time they meet, they date, and spent their time together. One of scene shows he’s  still remember what she eats and does in that place. It makes her happy laugh. Finally she comes to the last place, she finds a box contains a white dress. She looks so beautiful in white. And she go to the middle of sea with a ship.  This is the last scene which make all girls scream out and melting. They meet in the middle of sea and he stand dashing way, hold her hand and  say “Will you marry me??”...ohhhh so romantic.

I like this video because the meaning of song so beautiful. I think God had prepared a special day to meet our mate. Someone who loves us, accept our weakness , remind us when we forget and always complete our life. The important things is he can be a leader to guide us  to heaven. I believe that God had a good plan for us so we must have a positive thought.  And I think a boy who loves you  know details in yourself, maybe you don’t know about that.

Another reason why I like it because The view is so georgeous.  Maybe the shooting place at Phucket, Thailand. the place is fame as one of romantic place in this world.  I also like Afgan and Rossa sing this song. Their voice is good and they sing with all their heart.

Indonesia Economy

Currently, the Indonesian economy to be optimism for increased economic growth. With the growth and the national income has increased, so we can see the development and progress against other countries. National income per year in Indonesia will be able to deliver progress. For the macro-economic level will be very influential in economic growth. One of the economic growth can be seen and demonstrated with domestic demand is still the main support for economic performance. Not to forget also for world exports and imports, as well as investment. Visible at the lack of macro economy on the bank aspects of this we can also feel the presence of Indonesian Economic growth is increasing. Bank Indonesia predict that economic growth in the Indonesian economy will grow.

Synergistic relationship between the ministries should be made increasingly more care and support each other so it would be more beneficial to society. With the formation of the entrepreneurial spirit campaign, such as the international seminar. is one way in uplifting the soul and also the potential for economic warrior who never gave up and have creativity.

Indonesia has a low competitiveness and Indonesia are not able to manage the competition that will lead to the poor economy. then this brings a wide range of negative impacts of Indonesian Economic globalization, for example as a flood of foreign products call it the Chinese state products that ultimately shut down the value of domestic production. so that only Indonesian citizens could be manual labor that have low salaries. whereas for those jobs that require skills held by foreigners, and of course job vacancies at this time has been very narrow, difficulties for the people who are unemployed and will be depleted due to the employment of foreign workers.

While the positive impact of Indonesia Economy globalization in term of capital, then in term of the availability of capital to fund access will become increasingly easy to obtain investment from abroad. This investment directly such as in the construction of the plant will also open for a job. But it’s just that these positive effect will be reversed 180 degrees when the government is running the inability to manage the flow of foreign fund. This will happen even buildup of foreign fund is more profitable for the owner of capital and itis too prone to cause the economic crisis caused by the collapse of the Rupiah.

Java Jazz Festival

Hi… I want to do this essay assignment from my beautiful  English teacher Miss Silvana, I want to say thanks for this essay assignment before.. thank you so much miss. Now I want to write about Java Jazz Festival, I do not know much about this event so  I took this assignment  from several sources .  

Java jazz festival is one of the biggest jazz festival in the world, this festival is held in early March each year in Jakarta,  It was held for the first time in 2005 so now java jazz festival was ten years old. This festival is not only present jazz musicians but there are also musicians from another music genre like hip hop, R&B and reggae. Many famous international jazz musician came to this festival like  James Brown, Earth, Wind & Fire, Eric Benet, Bubi Chen, and Angie Stone in 2006 but actually I don’t know about them and there were many local jazz musician like  Maliq & D'Essentials, Marcell, Ten 2 Five, Ruth Sahanaya and many more, and I like listening their song specially for Maliq & D’Essentials and Ten 2 Five.  According to this festival official account more than 67.000 visitors came to this festival for three days in 2006,  I think this is great festival with great musician too.

Initiator of this event is Peter Frans Gontha, he was born in Semarang,May 4 1948. He is a son of the couple V Willem Gontha and Alice. He is one of the success businessman in Indonesia, now he has many corporation like Plaza Indonesia Realty (The Grand Hyatt Jakarta), Bali Intercontinental Resort, Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia (RCTI), Surya Citra Televisi (SCTV), PT Chandra Asri Indonesia, PT Tri Polyta Indonesia, Firstmedia, and Indovision wow rich man. Peter Frans Gontha inspired to create this event from him experience, he was always going to Europe to watch jazz concert so he want to make jazz concert in Indonesia and Indonesian people don’t need to go abroad, so I think we can take the spirit of him and make something great like him make this great festival.

MURI give this event world record highest award plaque for Java Jazz Festival. Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival break the record for the world's largest jazz festival as much as 1.300 musicians, artists and music group in 21 stage wow congratulation for Java Jazz.

Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival 2014 (JJF 2014) which was held on February 28, 1 and March 2, 2014, in JI Expo Kemayoran, is holding the 10th of the world's largest jazz festival is produced by the Indonesian consistently. Java Jazz Festival 2014 presents many international musicians, some of which are Tania Maria, Sadao Watanabe, Ivan Lins, Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith, Allen Stone, Jamie Cullum, Robert Glasper, Thais Motta (Brazil), Joao Sabia (Brazil), Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and Grumul (Australia), Nils Petter Molvaer and Magnus Lindgren (Skandinavia), Gerald Albright, James Taylor Quartet, Norman Brown, Earth Wind and Fire Experience, Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Richard Elliot, Jonathan Butler, and Rick Braun, and some local musicians like Deddy Dukun, Dian Pramana Putra and Adie MS

Java jass festival could be a promotion for tourism in Indonesia so the government get the provit from this event. This year java jazz sponsored by Clear Shampoo and this year java jazz use batik theme, all singer and musician wearing batik so this is pride for us, Indonesian people. Now I am confused  what to write anymore, I swear I am confused.

This musical events that became the pride of Indonesia is supported by several loyal sponsors such as First Media, BNI Bank, Garuda Indonesia, the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, the Ministry of Commerce, and others. I hope this event can continue to be held because I think this event is the good way to promote Indonesia. But I think some of us including me didn’t know what is jazz, we just enjoyed the music without know what is jazz.

Jakarta International Java Jazz 2014 have another event that event called Sound Fair it will  held on  October 24 – 26, 2014 and the guest star  is Magic! Band that mixed reggae, pop, rock and a little soul as their genre is one of the famous newcomer artist today, and their song “Rude” is famous among teens, and I like their song too, I hope I can go to Jakarta and watch their performances, I hope…..   Miss Sil maybe you want to go there? If you want, can you treat me? :D

I hope we as the young generation can make something good creation for Indonesia maybe with music, make a great event like Java Jazz without forgetting our culture or we can mixed the modern music with our traditional music and local culture, so we can reduce negative behavior among the teens with positive activity. Be good generation for a good country. Fighting!!

I’m sorry Miss Sil I can’t write well, because actually I didn’t know about Java Jazz, so I retrieve data from the Internet, but I translate this assignment by my self and my friend helped me to find the word, I hope I can be more active in class than before, Thank you ((:

Koes Plus

Koes Plus is an Indonesian musical group was formed in 1969 as a continuation of the group Koes Brothers. Famous music group in the 1970s is often regarded as the pioneer of pop music and rock ’n roll in Indonesia. Until now, this band still occasionally perform music bring their old songs, although only two members ( Yon and Murry ) enabled. Their songs sung by many other musicians with the new arrangement. For example, Lex’s Trio makes special album re sing Koes Plus songs,  Cintamu telah berlalu sung by Chrisye, also Manis dan Sayang sung by Kahitna.

The group originated from Tuban has been a pioneer of pop music and rock n’ roll, even once imprisoned for his music which is considered to represent the flow of capitalist politics. At the time it was fierce-fierce anti-capitalist movement in Indonesia. On Thursday, July 1, 1965, an army captures brothers Tony, Yon, and Yok Koeswoyo and locked them in prison Glodok, then Nomo Koeswoyo come on consciousness itself. He choose together rather than separation from beloved brothers. The error is because they always play a song of The Beatles that are considered toxic to young people at that time.

From prison would produce songs that have until now remained thrilling, ‘’ Di dalam bui’’, ‘’ Jadikan aku dombamu’’, ‘’Balada kamr 15’’. 29 September 1965, the day before erupted G30S-PKI, they were released without any apparent reason. Later after the event was over, Koes Brothers are still alive and doing the age old testimony in front of audience talk show KICK AND ANDY ( Metro TV) in late 2008 that they were actually behind the arrest, the Soekarno government assigns them in a counter intelligence operation to support the movement crush Malaysia.

From this was born the group Koes Brothers songs that are very popular such as ‘’Bis Sekolah’’, ‘’ Di dalam Bui”, “ Telaga Sunyi” , “ Laguku Sendiri” and many more. One member of the Koes Brothers, Nomo Koeswoyo out and replaced by Murry as drummer. Although this replacement initially cause problems within the personal one Yok who objected to outsiders. Brother’s name so replaced with Plus, it means plus outsiders( Murry).

Actually Koes Brothers songs better in terms of harmonization (such as Telaga Sunyi and Bis Sekolah) compared to Koes Plus songs. At that time Nomo also have second job. While Tony wants totality of the music that makes Nomo should choose. Finally Koes Brothers should be changed. The tradition of the songs itself is a creation invented tradition Koes Brothers. Later this tradition continued with the album Koes Plus serial volumes 1,2 and so on. Once formed, Koes Plus indirect sympathy of Indonesian music lovers. LPs first album had been rejected several record stores. They even laughed at the song “ kelelawar” which is actually absorbed it.

Then Murry was cranky and went to Jember distributing LPs album for free on his friends. He worked at the sugar mill also playing band together with Gombloh in group Lemon Trees. Tonny then followed Murry to invited back to Jakarta. After the song “ kelelawar” screened at the last RRI, and people looking for their first album Koes Plus. Some time later through his songs” Derita”, “Kembali Ke Jakarta” until “ Cinta Buta”, Koes Plus dominates Indonesia at that time.

In the years 1972 - 1976 Indonesian air completely filled by Koes Plus songs. Either the radio or the party always carry a Koes Plus songs. Perhaps no  Indonesian people who were then aged teenagers who do not know Koes plus. When was Koes Plus issued a new album is always early waited by Koes Plus lovers and the general public. Koes Plus 1972 could be the best band in the Jamboree Band in Senayan.  All participants sing Western songs in English. Only Koes Plus that dared to be different by singing the song “ Derita” and “ Manis dan saying”.

From the information that was sent by Koes Plus fans, apparently Koes Plus feat was remarkable. In 1974 Koes Plus issued 22 albums, the album consisted of new songs and album’’ the best’’ including instrumental albums, which were made from the original instrument recording Koes Plus. They spend an average of 2 albums in one month. In 1975 there are 6 albums. Then in 1976 they released 10 albums. Perhaps it is worth noting record in the Guinness Book of Records. And indeed almost all the songs nice to hear. Because a lot of merit in the development of music, the community provides a sign of respect for his achievement became legendary group with a token of appreciation given through the “ Basf Legend Award, 1992 were held in addition to the achievement devotion in art long enough, the product of creation because the songs was also inadequate since 1960 and now has created 953 songs in 89 albums collected. But the fact of Koes Plus now very tragic. As Yon said one time that Koes plus not only big name but got nothing. This remark was fit to represent the state personnel Koes Plus. They do not get money from the sale of tapes containing their old songs. But Yon did not feel it as a burden. He feel grateful when the people love their old songs until now and the support from family.
