Endah Laras: Bunga Anggrek

Endah Laras, accompanied by Orkes Keroncong Swastika, thrilled the crowd at the 2013 Surakarta Keroncong Festival. She came on stage singing and strumming a small ukulele and in a performance of contrasts she moved, danced, laughed and sang like a bird. You could hear a pin drop when her clear voice soared lyrically in this absorbing and mesmerising rendition of ‘Bunga Anggrek’ (The Orchid). Then the mood changed as she light-heartedly joked and urged the audience to sing the humorous ‘Ayo Ngguyu’ (Let’s Laugh). With her full voice and huge pitch range, Endah is spoken of as a successor to Waljinah.
