Jakarta: Samsons Aria Dinata gave a stunning solo performance of “Indonesia Raya”  at the beginning of the Yahoo OMG Awards, November 18. Showing off his spectacular voice he got the entire audience on their feet and converted some of the noisier fans at the ceremony into quiet spectators while they were listening to him. Indonesia Raya, the national anthem of Indonesia, is always sung at the very beginning of any event or show in Indonesia.

Irfan (Samsons’ Guitarist) admits the band has improved with the new vocalist and was glad to have Aria on board. “In terms of quality, it’s much better. If we are given a new opportunity to be a better, then why not”, he said.

Despite the new vocalist, Samsons haven’t’t changed their original musical style. From the beginning, Samsons has been different to other bands and still define their own music genre and style. “We always say the colour of the music is ‘Samsons’, because we play it all. We call it a Samsons genre. It’s like a canvas, we can do whatever we want,” insisted Irfan.

After launching their latest album last September “Perihal Besar”, Samson has also been kept busy by being a broadcaster at I-Radio. The group, consisting of Irfan (guitarist), Aria (vacal), Aldri (bass), Erik (guitarist) and Dan Konde (drum), are presenting an I-Radio program titled ‘Sabotase’.
