Celebrating the upcoming G20 Summit

Celebrating the upcoming G20 Summit

To celebrate the upcoming G20 Summit, well-known influencers from Indonesia will be campaigning to spread the word on the priority issues addressed in the G20 Presidency on November 15-16 in Bali, Indonesia. Through the #SaatnyaIndonesia campaign for #GerakBersama #G20Indonesia, influencers will share their contents on their social media from October to November 2022 regarding the Global Health Architecture, Digital Transformation, and Sustainable Energy Transition.

In this campaign, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics collaborates with several top national influencers to reach all levels of Indonesian society. The influencers will share various types of content related to the three main issues of the G20 Presidency through their social media for their millions of followers to see. For example, the contents will discuss the "20 Healthy Habits to Increase Productivity" to foster public understanding of the Global Health Architecture. While for the Sustainable Energy Transition, the content will advise on the "Different Ways to Love the Earth."

"The meeting of the G20 countries is expected to move Indonesia and the whole world towards economic recovery and sustainability. Therefore, it is essential to attract attention and invite people in Indonesia from all levels to participate in the G20 Presidency," says Usman Kansong, Director General of Information and Public Communications of the Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Informatics.

The influencers who will take part in the #SaatnyaIndonesia campaign are Nycta Gina (@missnyctagina) and Doctor Reisa Broto Asmoro (@reisabrotoasmoro), discussing the issue of Global Health Architecture, Doctor Tirta (@dr.tirta) on Digital Transformation issues, and Nadine Chandrawinata (@nadinelist) on Sustainable Energy Transitions.

The discussion of the Global Health Architecture issues in the G20 Presidency is a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The collaboration aims to ensure the readiness of the global community against future pandemics, as well as the existence of equal global health standards and a more inclusive global health system. Seeing the importance of this issue, influencer Nycta Gina who is also a doctor explains, "I am excited to have the opportunity to participate in the success of this G20 Presidency campaign. Hopefully, by posting about health issues on my social media account, people will be more enthusiastic about rising from the Covid-19 pandemic and having a healthier lifestyle."

Furthermore, Digital Transformation also received the spotlight at this year's G20 Summit, especially on cooperation between countries and all stakeholders. The discussions aim to restore the post-pandemic global economic order using more inclusive digitalization by supporting Indonesian MSMEs to enter the digital ecosystem.

The issue of the Sustainable Energy Transition will also be widely discussed and attended to at the G20 Summit. The pandemic and climate change have urged the global community to accelerate the transition to cleaner energy sources. Therefore, the G20 member countries' cooperation in the form of sustainable investment to accelerate the Sustainable Energy Transition is essential. "We must be wiser in taking from nature and pay attention to its sustainability. As one of the Influencers involved in this campaign, I invite the community to join me in changing your mindset and lifestyle towards Sustainability," explained Nadine Chandrawinata.

In addition to reaching the wider community, the Indonesian government's collaboration with these influencers is also an effort to make the G20 Presidency a success. The G20, or Group of Twenty, is an intergovernmental forum consisting of 19 countries and the European Union (EU). The G20 works to address significant issues related to the global economy. Indonesia was elected to be the chairman and host of the 17th G20 Presidency international forum, which consists of a series of activities that commenced in December 2021.

About the Ministry of Communications and Informatics

The Ministry of Communications and Informatics oversees information and communication affairs in Indonesia. As a form of full support for the Indonesian Presidency at the 2022 G20 Summit, the Ministry has collaborated with several stakeholders and influencers to participate in enlivening the G20 Summit by explaining priority issues on their respective social media as a form of education to the Indonesian people.

Each evening promises to be a celebration for both Justin and his fans, who have been looking forward to these new shows since the pandemic sidelined the previously announced 2020 dates.

The 'Justice World Tour,' promoted by AEG Presents, is Justin's first global outing since 2016/2017's 'Purpose World Tour'. Described by The Times of London as "mesmerizing", Bieber played to 2.7 million fans over the course of his 2016-2017 run, with the finale seen by 65,000 fans at London's British Summer Time Hyde Park festival.

On New Year's Eve 2020, Justin livestreamed his first full performance in 3 years from Los Angeles, electrifying and reconnecting with fans around the world.

"We've been working hard to create the best show we've ever done, and we can't wait to share it with fans around the world. I'll see you soon," said Bieber.

The 'Justice World Tour' is named after Justin's latest smash hit album 'Justice'. Released in April 2021, it debuted as the most streamed album in 117 countries. The album and its tracks have taken the already global pop phenomenon to new heights.

'Justice' has amassed nearly 9 billion streams worldwide, arriving on the back of huge international hits 'Anyone', 'Lonely' and 'Holy', which had already gathered 2 billion streams prior to the album's release. Another breakout smash hit from the album immediately followed, with 'Peaches' racking up over 2.5 billion streams so far. The Kid LAROI duet 'Stay', was released in July this year and became the fastest song ever to hit 1 billion streams on Spotify.

In an unprecedented career that started when he was 13 years old, Bieber has released 6 studio albums and holds 32 Guinness World Records, 21 Billboard Music Awards, 2 BRIT Awards, 18 American Music Awards and 21 MTV Europe Music Awards. He has sold over 80 million albums and last year broke Elvis Presley's record as the youngest solo artist to have 8 albums reach Number 1 on the Billboard 200 charts. In August, he broke the all-time record for monthly listeners on Spotify with over 83 million.

Recently named Artist Of The Year at the MTV Video Music Awards and nominated for a field-leading 8 MTV EMA Awards, Bieber remains the Number 1 artist on both YouTube and Spotify worldwide, cementing his place as one of the biggest pop stars of the 21st century.

Bali Paradise on Hold Documentary

Bali Paradise on Hold Documentary

Bali is also called the Island of Paradise. An island where everyone can get almost everything they want on this island. But there is a very astonishing fact about this island hidden behind the noise of those night clubs and the walls of every resort. On a mountain in the Karangasem area, many people still live in half finished bamboo houses. Even as simple as getting water, they would need to walk for hours just to get it.

Paradise on Hold Documentary gives a voice to extreme poverty & inequality in Bali that have been muffled by the thick bamboo forests for too long. These are heartfelt stories from people lost in time that shatter our very definition of an island of paradise. In the second Documentary Series, East Bali Poverty Project has been the priority of Our Bali Your Bali & fund raising through the cookbook sales - written by Dean Keddell as the situation in Desa Ban is dire. All proceeds go to charities!

Through the second episode of Buro Creative Studio's documentary video, Our Bali Your Bali went to the other side of Bali and tried to make the voices of those living in poor areas heard. Voices about poverty and injustice that have been muffled by bamboo trees which grow in the east of Bali. Complete with various stories from many mouths that do not have a chance to speak from an area that breaks all recent definitions about Bali, an island of paradise.

Our Bali Your Bali's second episode will introduce the East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP), Terra Water, and East Bali Bamboo Bikes. In 2016, EBPP launched East Bali Bamboo Bikes as a social enterprise to create a sustainable bamboo business by leveraging local natural and human resources to provide support to isolated and underprivileged communities in Desa Ban in East Bali.

The video will be released through a screening event "Paradise on Hold" at Jackson Lily's and to the public on the Our Bali Your Bali Youtube channel on July 23, 2022. This event will bring together five foundations supported by Our Bali Your Bali and hold a talk show seminar, on sustainability, the process of making the second episode of the documentary, and how people can help support Bali in the long term.

"Over the years, Bali has made its current economy so dependent on the tourism industry, that it has failed to share its benefits with all villages and communities. Instead of sharing this wealth, it has been hidden from the rest and neglected the poor," said Diego Coppen, Executive Producer of Our Bali Your Bali. There is still so much to change, to restructure, to re-define in order to make the incomes of tourism more sustainable, but better yet that Bali becomes a sustainable island on its own for all communities.

The mission of building a youtube channel for the documentary series Our Bali Your Bali is to raise awareness and tell the story of Bali affected by poverty and the situation behind the beautiful tourism, a place known to people around the world only for its beauty. Many people living on this heavenly island are still fighting for equality and trying to feed their families.

The vision in the results of this documentary is that people from within and outside the country can provide support to the right environment and society in Bali. Building a community that cares about the level of the situation that is still trying to find a better way for their lives and the lives of their families.

This documentary is expected to be able to build a global community that cares about the equality of resources and basic human needs for the interests and future of the lives of marginalized Balinese people.

Buro Creative Giving is a voluntary project from Buro Creative Studio purely to help local businesses in Indonesia, hoping to help them achieve their goals, build stability and systems by donating creative support and solutions. This creative initiative is all about the long-term success of the businesses that it reaches out to - so it can operate in a sustainable manner without the daily support from an outside management.

Aside from creating awareness, the objective of the documentary is to ensure Our Bali Your Bali continues to raise funds for those depending on support. The $520,000 raised to date is simply not enough. 100% of proceeds from the cook book and documentary of Our Bali Your Bali go to those in greatest need.

Podcast Classes for Parenting and Children

The online classes will be held between 18 June to 3 July 2022 and will feature various guests.

"We hope that these podcast classes can act as a guide for parents, educators, and content creators, for parenting and children-themed podcasts," said Rizki Ameliah, Coordinator of Digital Literacy of Indonesia's Ministry of Communications and Informatics.

In recent years, podcasts have become one of the most popular audio media in Indonesia.

Record-Breaking Music Albums from Jakarta

Record-Breaking Music Albums from Jakarta

Seasons Jakarta is the latest compilation from Jakarta's rap and lo-fi scene. Featuring 13 tracks, the album features music from Flo Filz, Le Maestro, K, Like, Ta-Ku & Matt McWaters, Melodiesinfonie, Nanna B and Freddie Joachim. The compilation's eclectic style ranges from RnB and lo-fi hip hop to rap and a little bit of everything in between.

Essentially, Seasons Jakarta is a beautiful compilation of songs from Indonesia's most popular hip-hop labels. Some of the artists on the album include Flo Filz, Otis Junior, K Le Maestro, and Le Maestro. You can listen to music from other hip-hop labels that are available through Jakarta Records. You can listen to some of their songs on a free sampler album that was released by the top label; the songs are available on all streaming platforms.

The music featured on this album reflects the vibrant creative culture of Jakarta and its people. The MC, who resigned from his position as the party MC in 2012, took the music industry by storm when he started deejaying at Indonesia's major clubs and events. The MC earned several awards, including HardRock FM's Paranoia Icon and Rookie of the Year. Now, the DJ has reclaimed his spot behind the decks, dropping a diverse selection of music genres that dictate the vibe through his mic.

A few decades ago, Shark Move from Jakarta's Record-Breaking Music album was released. Shark Move's production was discontinued after several thousand copies were sold. However, the band reunited, and Benny promised to recreate some of the band's most important musical releases. Those releases included Giant on the Move, the band's biggest hit. However, the band enjoyed little success with the previous production's relaunch.

The band members began their career as a typical garage rock outfit named The Peels. Their music later gained modest success in Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Subsequently, Benny Soebardja created Shark Move with friends who studied at the Bandung Technical Institute. Despite the limited commercial success, Shark Move managed to achieve something: It established itself as a prominent progressive rock band in Indonesia. Ultimately, the group's unique sound may have inspired other local and international artists to adopt this fascinating musical style.

Giant Step: As noted, the debut album Shark Move by Giant Step, the legendary Indonesian band, was a rousing regional success. Indeed, many fans admit the ambitious amateurs behind it have come up with a memorable album. Like the Italian classics of the early 70s, the album is a combination of wild instrumentation and ambitious songwriting. However, it lacks the polished production that makes it a commercial success. Despite that, it is still worthwhile to listen to anyone who enjoys progressive rock music.

This first album by Giant Step, titled "Mark I," was described as a mixed bag of influences, ranging from classic hard rock to folk-inspired rock and some Indonesian wedding music. It was an enlightening experience for fans, and the band has since released seven studio albums. Giant Step has become an incomparable commercial force in the country, reaching an admirable level of mainstream popularity comparable to the successes of the late 70s and early '80s.

Hardy's House: In 2022, Hardy's House became the fastest-selling music album in the UK. It debuted at number one-top of the charts- on the US Billboard 200, where it sold 521,500 album-equivalent units in its first week. Similarly, the album has debuted at number one in several countries. The producers included Kid Harpoon, Tyler Johnson, and Samuel Witte. Unsurprisingly, the album received positive reviews from critics worldwide.

Amine's Limbo: Amine's new album, Limbo, certainly breaks records for both genres. The album starts with the song "Burden," which explores personal matters Amine might not have discussed before. The record contains references to things like Winona Ryder's shopping spree, the Miss Universe gaffe, and the Arthur meme. Such moments add a layer of complexity to the album, providing an interesting and challenging listen.

Amine's shift to a more carefree style of music was inspired by the death of NBA icon Kobe Bryant. The late superstar was a benchmark for many people in Indonesia, and Amine saw his death as an unofficial beginning of his own real manhood. Limbo is an interesting departure from Amine's previous releases in which he tended to cater to the desires of his fans rather than himself. Only the track "Shimmy" sounds similar to Amine's previous releases.

Indonesia to lead ASEAN Health Sector

Indonesia to lead ASEAN Health Sector

On the last day of the 15th ASEAN Health Ministers Meeting, the Indonesian Ministry of Health as the Co-chair of the ASEAN-US Health Ministerial Meeting led the cooperation talks in ASEAN member states and the United States of America (the US).

"During the ASEAN-US Health Ministerial Meeting, we had the opportunity to discuss and adopt the ASEAN-US terms of Reference and agree on cooperation to develop a three-year work plan," said Indonesian Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin at a press conference on Sunday in Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia.

The two major world's economies, ASEAN, and the US, agree to, first, strengthening the health system for emergencies. Second, to encourage investment in primary healthcare services, such as the Indonesian style of Community Health Center Puskesmas. The purpose is to encourage communities in ASEAN and the US embracing a healthier lifestyle to reduce health costs.

In addition, strengthening primary health services is also important to ensure that vulnerable groups can access healthcare services when needed that would resemble equitable access to healthcare.

A strong and equitable health system must be balanced with well-trained and well-performing health workers. For this reason, ASEAN and the US to increase the capacity of their health workers as well as to increase the number of people working in the area. ASEAN and the US also agree to ensure the relevance of health workers skills and their quality to meet the needs of the patients and the development of science and technology.

The ASEAN-US cooperation will also strengthen information and data systems to support the development of local vaccine production, therapeutic and diagnostic tools. In practice, the two countries agreed to transfer technology and know-how, as well as to increase research and development capacity. "The United States is committed to helping ASEAN," said the Minister of Health.

Minister Budi said that the concept of regional cooperation in the health sector with any partners is aimed to advancing and strengthening the health system itself and is not only for ASEAN Member States but also for the United States.

"When the ASEAN-US Health Sector Work Plan is established, Indonesia is ready to contribute to achieving the priorities that would be set. I believe that the US expertise, knowledge and experience will benefit the future of the ASEAN Health Sector," he concluded.

The country is a member of several multilateral organisations, including the United Nations, World Trade Organization, G20 which it will host later this year in the Worlds most loved Tourist island, beautiful and tranquil Bali.

Best Bands of All Time

Best Bands of All Time

Rock Indo, Indonesia's popular rock music, is a veritable product of the country's diverse culture and globalizing viewpoint; it's generally comparable to other much-loved music elsewhere. Peculiar Indonesian ideas regarding concepts like individualism, interdependence, modernism, and the supernatural are firmly embedded in the country's rock videos and music. The Jakarta Rock Parade, a three-day celebration that recently hosted over 100 acts, is one of Indonesia's major rock festivals.

Here is a catalogue of Jakarta's finest bands of all time:

Slank- Slank: The band, which was founded in 1983 by teenagers in a Jakarta alley known as Gang Potlot, is the biggest Indonesian rock group today. Along with God Bless and Dewa 19, it has been dubbed one of the greatest icons in Indonesia's music history. It serves as a motivator for many rock groups that emerged following the success of God Bless. The band is recognized for combining blues and rock songs with political and sociological themes. It actively operates and has garnered honors from the Indonesian music fraternity.

God Bless: God Bless is an Indonesian rock band, formed in 1973 by Ahmad Albar (vocals), Jockie Soerjoprajogo (keyboard), Fuad Hassan (drums), Donny Fattah (bass), and Ludwig Lemans (guitar). It performed its debut concert on May 5, 1973, in Taman Ismail Marzuki. This was followed by the Summer 28 event on August 16, the first and one of the largest open-air concerts in Indonesia. They performed remarkably in the fair that was hosted near the National Monument. In the same year, the band appeared in Ambisi (Ambition). Lemans departed the band to return to the Netherlands. Notably, Rolling Stone Indonesia recognized two of the famous God Bless' songs among the 150 finest Indonesian songs of all time. In its 2009 issue "Kehidupan" ("Life") was placed eighth, while "Rumah Kita" ("Our Home") was ranked 22nd.

Dewa 19- Dewa 19 is a Surabaya, East Java-based Indonesian rock band. It's widely considered one of the best rock bands in Indonesian popular music history. In 1986, the band was first established; its lineup changed several times-it was eventually disbanded in 2011. The previous lineup consisted of Ahmad Dhani (keyboard), Andra (guitar), Agung Yudha (drums), Yuke (bass guitar), and Once (vocals). Marcello, Ahmad, Andra, Yuke, and Agung are among the veteran, current band members.

This band was successful in the 1990s with Ari Lasso's vocals and again in the 2000s with Once's vocals. Their records were always well accepted in the market; even their album from 2000, Bintang Lima, is ranked #9 on the list of Indonesia's all-time best-selling albums. It sold approximately 2 million copies after its release. Dewa 19 was voted the wealthiest band in Indonesia by Hai magazine in 2005, with annual profits exceeding 14 billion IDR. Ironically, the group had faltered multiple times over legal concerns- this included copyright infringement issues and feuds with various Islamic groups; all this happened at the height of its popularity.

Dewa 19 has sold over 7 million albums in Indonesian alone, winning several honors, including BASF and AMI awards. They have also received the LibForAll Award in the United States for their religious tolerance and peace activities. In the year 2008, Rolling Stone magazine included Dewa 19 in their list of "The Immortals: The 25 Greatest Indonesian Artists of All Time.

Edane- Edane is a Jakarta-based Indonesian rock band founded in 1991 by Eet Sjahranie during the golden age of Indonesian rock and metal music in the early 1990s. Edane has released six studio albums and one compilation album over the course of over three decades. Their dominating presence has made them one of the most influential bands in Indonesia's modern music scene. They have also received the most prestigious awards in the Indonesian music business; among these are Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) and Hammesonic Awards.

Netral- NTRL (previously Netral) is an Indonesian rock band founded in Jakarta in 1992. It has released 13 studio albums. Bagus (vocals and bass), Eno (drums), and Coki (guitar) are the band's current prominent members. Bagus, Bimo, and Miten established Netral in November 1992. In 1994, the band widely publicized their self-titled debut album, which had punk influences. In 1995, it released another album, Wa... Lah. The lyrics are haphazard and simplistic, with a "naughty" rock flair. Tidak Enak, the band's third album, was released in 1996, followed by Album Minggu in the following year. Following that, Bimo left the band and was replaced by Eno. Miten was replaced by Coki in 1999. Paten was the band's next major release, with Oke Deh coming hot on its heels in 2001. Eventually, Netral released Kancut in 2003.
