joining PORSENI competition with the vocal group, all the way from audition in the city until we made it to the national level, was a great opportunity I could get, furthermore as a middle school student. The competitive vibe was strong and we couldn’t help feeling excited till the continuous practice didn’t feel like an obligation anymore. It’s already become our spirit. Our shared goal. To perform as best as we could. Beside, it’s also a great opportunity to get insights from another parts of the country. There are various traditional songs performed, I forgot just how diverse Indonesia is. We, the representative of Central Java, performed ‘Kejayaan Majapahit’ as the required song for the competition, ‘Indonesia Jaya’, and also ‘Gundul Gundul Pacul’ which is a traditional song from our area.
