The Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry in collaboration with Hype Festival has launched Wonders, a series of live mini concert videos taking place in five of Indonesia’s super-priority tourist destinations.
The series premiered on Wednesday with a performance by DJ APSARA, who played her set on the tiny sand island of Taka Makassar in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara.
Coming up, singer Nadin Amizah’s acoustic set at the Pink Beach, also in Labuan Bajo, will premier on the same channel on Dec. 3.
“With Wonders, we want all people to enjoy Indonesia’s magic. This program is our way of conveying our love, a reminder that our earth is extraordinary as well as an invitation for all people to respect, take care of and protect [the wonders] for the future generations,” Michael Devant, Hype Festival's creative strategist, said in a statement.
The series aims to showcase the beauty of Indonesia’s tourist destinations blended with the culture, human interest, natural wilderness and original music of each destination.
It also seeks to boost the creative and tourism economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
All videos were made in compliance to strict health protocols. (gis/wng)
