She is talented and eager to sing Keroncong
Putri Intan Soekotjo or commonly called Intan is one of a handful of young people who dedicate themselves to preserving keroncong music. Intan is the daughter of one of Indonesia’s keroncong divas, Sundari Soekotjo.
In the “Kisah Mawar” concert which is also a celebration of the 90th birthday of the keroncong diva and seriosa Rose Pandanwangi, Intan will be one of the performers. Intan said, in an effort to preserve the art of keroncong music which is believed to be original Indonesian music, there must be a youthful touch mixed in to attract the millennial generation. “This is a challenge for the younger generation, to preserve keroncong, but not to lose its youthful color and not to take away the authenticity [of keroncong],” said Intan during a press conference at Ciputra Artpreneur, Jakarta, Thursday (24/1/2019).
