Please read on to learn more about the memorable events that happened after the release of this video:
I released this video on 30 march 2008, in memory of the Indonesian singer Chrisye, exactly one year after he died.
Chrisye was a legend in the Indonesian music scene. He has made a lot of albums with beautiful songs, with great melodies.
I listen to his music very often.
The title of the song is "Telah pergi sahabat tercinta" (Already gone, our dearest friend), by Dian Pramana Poetra and Deddy Dhukun.
In this song they describe what they felt when they heard the news about the death of their dear friend. I discovered the mp3 of the original version of the song on the internet while searching for Indonesian music.
After publication of this video on YouTube I was soon contacted by Chrisyes daughter Risty. We did not know each other at that time, so you can imagine what a great surprise this was for me. I had never imagined that Chrisye's family would ever watch this video. You can still read her touching words in one of the comments below. We had frequent email exchanges. Through her, and her sister Nissa, I learned that the song that I had covered was never publicly released. It was a miraculous coincidence that I had discovered this song on the internet.
I was very happy that I got in touch with them, and that I could show them my respect and appreciation for Chrisye directly. In october 2008 I have visited Chrisyes family in Jakarta in their home. We have visited Chrisyes grave, and we have shared precious moments together, that I will never forget.
I still listen to the music of Chrisye very often. He has made a lot of albums with beautiful songs. From Chrisyes family I obtained the Chrisye Trilogi, 3 beautifully designed CD boxes, each box containing 7 CDs, recorded between 1978 and 2004. Thank you, Chrisye, for the musical beauty that you left behind .....
I recorded the song in the Netherlands, together with the Indonesian singers Carina, Meity, Richard, Rinaldo and Wiwi.
I created it "from scratch", I play all instruments myself.
You can download a high-quality mp3 audio version of this recording and other Indonesian songs that I recorded from my website http://nlpeter.nl .
During my stay in Jakarta the Indonesian media have reported about my passion for Indonesian music and about my video in memory of Chrisye.
