performance for IIUM Shawwal Celebration 2007

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket DATE: 24/10/2007
PLAYLISTS: Dia Datang, Ketipang Payung, Selamat Hari Raya, Cindai

Yesterday at CAC Hall IIUM, the Angklung Team had performed in front of many staffs and lecturers of the university for IIUM Shawwal Celebration 2007.
Not only the team, the 2-hour feast was also entertained by Caklempong, Zapin and Nasyid groups, accompanied by Cikgu Ku Zahir and his 4 collegues from Istana Budaya; each as a violinist, bassist, gambus player and percussionist.
That evening also were celebrated by not only IIUM workers, but also Tan Sri Sanusi Junid and wife and the rector of the university, Dr. Syed Arabi. The song Dia Datang accompanied the arrival of the VIPs .
And as the guests enjoying the meals provided, the performers continued with some various presentations from the beginning of the celebration until the end.
As for the IIUM Angklung Team, it was a challenging performance for them as the songs they played have real upbeat tempo that needs them to play fast, thanks to Cikgu Ku Zahir as he provided the scores for the team, except for Ketipang Payung.
All in all, many enjoyed the performances, including the team itself. Yet, there are so many improvements needed, including the presence of the members for training and their dicipline to follow the schedule. Or else, the show wouldn't succeed. Wallahu'alam.

report: Festival Paduan Angklung di Bandung, Indonesia

Date: 6th September-10th September 2007
Venue: Institute Technology of Bandung, Indonesia
Playlists: Terajana, Poco-Poco, medley Katipang Payung and Joget Pahang

9th September 2007, Saturday- It was a dream come true to IIUM Angklung Group when they at last arrived at Institute Technology of Bandung (ITB), Indonesia to compete with other several teams from Indonesia in Festival Paduan Angklung which was held 7th September until 9 September 2007.
The team reached Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta on 6th September before they continued the 3-hour journey to Bandung. The group then reached Perdana Wisata Hotel late at night.
7th September, before the group went to ITB Bandung they first went to Tangkuban Perahu, where there is an active volcano to be seen. It was such a beautiful scene and many were mesmerized with the surrounding. Only after that they left to ITB for sound-check and a couple of training there before they get ready for the competition the next day.
8th September, the competition started early in the morning with IIUM Angklung Team being the first team to go. Playing 3 songs; Terajana (compulsory), Poco-Poco, and medley Katipang Payung and Joget Pahang arranged by none other than Siti Fairuz Kawid who was also the conductor of the team they had put 110% effort to gain such an encouraging plause by the audiences and even a thumb-up from one of the juries. However, IAC did feel nervous when they watched other teams performing their parts which was so much better than the team itself.
Not long after the competition ended, the jury annouced the winners and surprisingly, IIUM ANGKLUNG TEAM got third place!! The result was very unexpected by the members themselves as they became speechless just after the announcement. Yet, some were very happy they could not help but smiling and laughing and even touched. So much trouble came and yes! The sacrifices were all paid at last!
So the night the team joined the concert Paduan Angklung where all the first winners from all categories had to perform back and also prize-giving ceremony to all the winners.
On 9th September, after the members spent their money on shopping at Pasar Baru, Bandung, they left the beautiful city with such heavy hearts to the capital city Jakarta, Indonesia where they stayed for another night and left Indonesia on evening 1oth September and came back to Malaysia.
It was such a great experiece for the team. And it is hoped that this will not be the last time IIUM Angklung Team join the competition which will be held two years later and if they are good enough at that time, who knows if they could get first place.
And IIUM Angklung Team would love to congratulate IIUM Zapin Team for they had won the third palce for Festival Zapin MAKUM '07 at IUTM Skudai, Johor. Together we bring IIUM name to the eyes of the nation. Congratulations to all.

For the show itself, the team already practiced their way to move along while playing angklung. They had improved a lot in showmanship, even though there were minor mistakes. Some did complain that they felt a bit tired doing the movements, probably because of the meal they had before the show or maybe they still were not used to it. Nevertheless, the audience were so sporting, especially the VIPs who were said to like the song Pandang-Pandang Jeling-Jeling. The team also were given a loud applause from the viewers after the last song, Sejahtera Malaysia, thanks to the team who had to give full commitment during the training and the show itself.

And IAC team also celebrated one of the participants of IIUM Pantun team who is also a member of IIUM Angklung Club, Mohd. Farid. IIUM Pantun team actually reached the final round of the competition, competing with Universiti Putra Malaysia and even though the team only turned up to be the first runner up, but still their effort and spirit to uphold the name of the university should not be denied. Well done to the team and to the performers of the night's event.

Nothing much had happened for the night's show, except the songs that IAC group had to play were reduced form 10 songs into 5 songs because the group were given only 15 minutes to perform.
About the performance, IAC group played very well, especially for the new song, Rindu Bayangan. The audiences; almost of them were veterans and late adults were happy with the song. And also the international audiences were mesmerized with the sounds of bamboos and their feedback was very good.
All in all, despite of the disappointment of the numbers of songs that the group had played, at least the audiences enjoyed the performance, and that should give IAC team one good credit for their effort for the night's show.

report: Opening Ceremony of MASUM '07

Date: 3rd March 2007, Saturday
Venue: Main Hall CAC, IIUM
Time: +8.00 p.m
Playlists: Lenggang Kangkung and Wau Bulan
3rd March 2007- IAC team accompanying Gamelan group performed medley of Lenggang Kangkung and Wau Bulan for Opening Ceremony of MASUM, Majlis Sukan Antara Universiti Malaysia. IIUM is the host of the big event.
Conducted by Cikgu Ku Zahir, the night started by the sounds of percussion, and then Cak Doh Gong by Gamelan team. After that, Caklempong took place before Zapin team performed. Only after Zapin Angklung Team headed to the stage.
Probably that was the first time the team had 8 pages of music notes in front of them, so they had to make sure that it is well-prepared from page one until page 8. Plus, accompanying Gamelan for both songs was enjoyable, yet to catch up the speed was one challenge, but after plenty of trainings nights before that day, the team were able to play the songs well.
This is the last show for this semester. Since final examination is around the corner I would like to use this opportunity to wish you all the best and good luck to Kak Zakiah and Kak Zarith who will be leaving IIUM and Angklung Club this semester. Thank you for your commitment for this club and do not forget IAC team, ya!!

Nonetheless, as if the teams performing are as united as one, they cheered to each others' performances. They clapped hands, as if they are the audiences and thus gave one good sign that every team here support one another.
And for IAC, there is nothing much to say; some performances were good but still have plenty to improve. But credits go to every members who gave their commitment to come and play even though they were already busy with classes and assignments.
And one last stop before the semester ends; Opening Ceremony of MASUM '07.

Venue: Riverside, IIUM
Time: +10.00 p.m
Playlists: Ketipang Payung, Joget Pahang, PPJJ, Cindai, Enjit-Enjit Semut, Rasa sayang

14 Feb, 2007, Wednesday- IAC last night had performed 6 songs for IIUM Arts Education and Aprreciation Week '07 or generally known as Cultural Week. This program started last Monday, 12 February 2007 and will end on 15 February 2007.The idea is to let every clubs under Cultural and Arts unit open for registration to all students of IIUM and to inform them about the fuctions of Cultural and Arts Unit in IIUM itself.For the show, even though the number of audiences were small, at least the weather was fine and the songs played very well despite the fact that the members had to catch up the quick beat of percussion. And since plenty of IAC members are involved in this program, so it was quite hectic when it comes to training because of lack of members.However, the show ran smoothly and not only IAC who performed last night but also Caklempong Group, Silat Cekak Hanafi and Aikido team.

p/s: say thanks to Adlan for his participation for the first time with IAC.
