Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketDATE: 23/08/2008

Today IIUM ANGKLUNG GROUP members had a day out together at Kuliyyah of IRKHS. Like an induction course, but with little formality, the program focused more on the new members of IAG and its objective is to bring the members closer to each other and to create a strong bond between them. Also, the members learned what is important for the club and what kind of attitudes should the members instill when facing hardships and conflicts.
The day began with Stretching Dance conducted by Raja Nurwahida Adleen before the members got seperated by the committees fro ice-breaking sessions. In the sessions the members were taught to be themselves and be creative in expressing their ideas.
Then as the day went the members played Treasure Hunt, where they were given the directions in riddles and they need to complete tasks. There's no treasure to hunt, really. It was the messages hidden in the tasks given which soon the members needed to explain during the presentations before the program ended.
Overall, the members understood the tasks and the objectives for this program. Many advises from the seniors to the new members and it is hoped that every little things learnt from this program will bekept in the hearts of the members and the bonds between them remain strong until the end which will bring the club to success, Insya Allah.

Date: 9 August 2008
Day: Saturday
By: Pa’eja desu
Play-lists: Enjit-Enjit Semut, Besame Mucho, Lambada, Rindu Bayangan, Getaran Jiwa,
Ketipang Payung, Tanah Pusaka.

On August 9th 2008, IIUM Angklung Group performed for AIKOL Cultural Night which is the closing event for AIKOL Fest. As early as 7.45 pm, 30 members of Angklung Group gathered at KAED Auditorium and were prepared with their musical instruments as to give the best performance to the audience. The members were also excited and eager to perform for the event as there will be a performance by a very special guest.
While waiting for the VIPs, IAG presented 3 songs to the waiting audience, Enjit-Enjit Semut, Lambada and Besame Mucho. Though the performance was short, the members received a thunderous applause and cheers from the audience which consist of students from other universities.
The event began at around 8.30 pm with a speech from ????? of AIKOL. Among other performances was a play presented by Theatre Club, Marhaban recitation and special performance by a former rock star, Ramli Sarip. His poetic yet energetic performance created a tremendous and memorable event to the audience. Even though the members of IAG were a bit disappointed as they were asked to leave the hall early to be in position for the next performance, however, they were able to capture the memorable performance presented by Ramli Sarip.
The songs played by the members were Rindu Bayangan, Getaran Jiwa, Ketipang Payung and Tanah Pusaka. The IAG’s performance was accompanied by the IIUM Percussion Group and the rhythmic contra bass played by a member of IAG, thus perfecting the performance. The performance which was reasonably a success was a result of a week of tough training and pleasurable torture from Sis Fairuz and the IAG Mainboard. It was also a result of serious guidance from Pak Dadang.
In brief, it is hoped that the members continue to give commitment and support towards the club and keep on improving for the better. Thank you.

PLAYLISTS: We Are The Champion, Bujang Lapok, Joget Pahang and I'tiraf

Last night IIUM Angklung Club performed several songs for the Student Grand Cocuricullum Award '07, with the collaboration of Gamelan, Caklempong and Percussion groups.
Conducted by Bapak Dadang for the team's solo performance on We Are the Champion, many commented that that performance was quite messy, yet it was a bold risk for the team to try and did their best for the song.
However, the team's collaboration with other musical groups gained back the confidence in the team and thus, with our own Siti Fairuz Kawid as the conducter of the ending performance, each played well and the audience gave positive feedbacks on the show.
Overall, the show was not the critical point for IAG that night.
It was the Cultural Award that IIUM Angklung Group received on that night that made the night so memorable for the team.
Yes, IIUM ANGKLUNG GROUP has won the category of Cutural Awards on the Student Grand Cocuricullum Award 2007!
Other participants for the same category are Zapin Group and Gamelan Group, which are both strong in each achievements.
Nevertheless, the success is hoped will not end here. We hope that the team's achivement will continue to succeed and the team member will continue to give their full commitment and effort, Insya Allah.
All in all, to everyone in IIUM Angklung Team, Congratulation to all.

Performance on Engitex Dinner '08

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket DATE: 25/01/2008
PLAYLISTS: Tanah Pusaka, Enjit-Enjit Semut, Edelwiess, Poco-Poco

Despite of the pretty setting of the event last night, it is agreed by all IIUM Angklung Group that last night's performance involved by 28 new and old members of the musical group as the 'hottest' so far.

Wearing white did not help the performers at all during the show. It was a sweaty, crowdy show as there was no air conditioner at all in the Kuliyyah of Architecture Gallery where the event took place.

The group played songs 'Tanah Pusaka', 'Enjit-Enjit Semut', 'Edelwiess' and 'Poco-Poco'. However, the musical group grasped the attention of the audiences which gave the group the advantage to present to the public about angklung and the IIUM musical team.

Credits go to the new members of IAG. It is our pleasure to welcome all of you to the group and hopefully your commitment will stay with the club and together we bring our musical group to success, Insya Allah.

Last night, 18 January 2008, IIUM Angklung Group, with the collaboration of Gamelan, Caklempong, Nasyid, Koir, Percussion, Zapin, Theatre groups and also musicians from Istana Budaya had performed for Islamic Performing Arts Concert 2008 (IPAC '08).
The Great Hall, Cultural Arts Centre was a full house with all the seats from below until the upper seats were filled with eager audiences, and they were excited as the concert started with its main show that night, a musical theatre 'ODYSSEY; A LEGACY'.

The musical theatre basically shows how International Islamic University Malaysia was built; how the idea was created by 'Che Det' and friends and how they struggle to make their dream come true.

And, after that, how Cultural and Arts Unit propose to succeed the program called 'IPAC', and how in the end the 'concert' succeeded.

Overall, it was not only the achievements of IIUM, but it was also about the Cultural and Arts Unit's success and dignity.

As for the performers, their hard work during trainings paid a lot last night, as the audiences were mesmerized by all the songs played during the musical theatre, thanks to the composer and music director of the show, cikgu Ku Zahir Ku Ahmad from Istana Budaya.
And to show appreciation to him, the crews of the program gave an appreciation calypso to him, without him knowing about it, at the very end of the show.

All in all, as for IAG itself, the show had gave them the opportunity to join such a big event for the year 2008.

Thanks for the commitment, and the experience of being as a part of the musical theatre will not be forgotten, Insya Allah.
