Indonesia Raya – Indonesia's National Anthem

The new Music category on Bali Mandira Blog & Fun is inaugurated today with a special song – Indonesia Raya, the National Anthem of Indonesia.

The song was written by the Indonesian songwriter Wage Rudolf Supratman, in 1927 and was chosen as national Anthem when Indonesia proclaimed its independence on 17 August 1945. As a strange coincidence of destiny, the songwriter died on the same day [August 17] but 11 years earlier [1938].

A special song for a special day.
