Soundquriang is the largest annual event held by PPIA Macquarie, promoting Indonesian art and culture through music as the medium of interaction. This concert aims to contribute to solving the social challenges persisting in Indonesia, specifically children-related issues, by donating 100% of its profits to a selected cause. The name ‘Soundquriang’ combines the element of ‘sound’ and the epic Indonesian legend of ‘Sangkuriang’.
Continuing the legacy of prior years, Soundquriang 8 will be held as a means to uphold Indonesian art and culture through music by inviting well known Indonesian artists to the concerts. Performing their Indonesian chart-topping singles, the artists are sure to be a sensational hit amongst the Indonesian community. Unfortunately, the world has not been fully recovered from COVID-19 outbreaks. This urges us to move adaptively and change the perspectives on how to approach these limitations, which in this case, adapting Soundquriang to be an online project once more.
Reflecting on the success of last year’s online adaptation, Symphony of Satoe Noesa, PPIA Macquarie decided to present another virtual charity concert, Soundquriang 8, that highlights the Reminiscences of Nusantara musical journey. With Happy Hearts Indonesia, this event aims to alleviate persistent educational issues in rural areas of Indonesia. The charitable aims of this event are central to its concept and purpose.
