report: Angklung Performance at Cultural Night IIUM

July 5th, 2006, IIUM- "It was fun!!!"
Despite the fact that IIUM Angklung Club members had been sacrificing their own time, money and energy to come and practiced for days, their performance last night for the Cultural Night went extraordinary and marvellous.
This has been proved by Kak Maswa herself (dun remember her title 0_o), and she even asked the club to do some keroncong songs.
Not only that, the support that came from the audiences had made the show worth a thousand of sweats and commitments from Angklung Club members, whose hands went numb just after the first song 'I'tiraf' ended. However the show went on with Bungong Jumpa, a song that no one in the hall seems to know.
But then it continued with one of the toughest song for Angklung members, Peter Pan's 'Ada Apa Denganmu', and even though the song is quite popular among students they couldn't guess it at the opening of the song. They only clapped hard after they recognized the chorus, and they clapped harder at the middle of the song.
Finally, the show ended with Enjit-Enjit Semut, and the audiences sang and clapped their hands along with the song played. Obviously they enjoyed themselves with angklung performance. And the members left the stage with full satisfaction and smiles, no more worries =)

Besides Angklung, there were also Zapin, Band, Caklempong, Silat Helang Putih and Nasyid performances. The Cultural Night was held to introduce IIUM cultural clubs to the new students. It only ended after 12 a.m
