Singapore, 26 March 2017 – More than 4000 Indonesians from all walks of life attended Festival RISING50 at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Singapore today. Presented by Singtel and Telkomsel, this is the first concert event of RISING50 celebrations held in commemoration of 50 years of bilateral relations between Singapore and Indonesia.
Popular Indonesian music artistes were specially invited to Singapore to take part in the festivities and entertain the Indonesian community. Popular pop band, Armada, wowed the audience with songs such as Mau Dibawa Kemana and Pergi Pagi Pulang Pagi. Siti Badriah, one of Indonesia’s up-and-coming dangdut singers, got the crowd singing and dancing along with her hit songs such as Brondong Tua and Goyang Pumang.
Singtel and Telkomsel also launched a real-time mobile remittance service to Indonesia at the event. This service allows Singtel Dash customers in Singapore to send money to 4,500 Kantor Pos cash-out locations across Indonesia - an enhancement to the current facility that lets customers send money to Indonesian bank accounts.
