Genta Sriwijaya is a historical story wrapped in the form of a modern art performance. With a duration of 1.5 hours, Genta Sriwijaya will combine dance, music and theater, Kenthus said at a news conference at The Pallas SCBD Jakarta, Thursday, November 8, 2018.

The Genta Sriwijaya show is supported by the appearance of a number of public figures from various backgrounds. They are Andrea Miranda, Daniel Christianto, Ruth Sahanaya, Ivy Batuta, Inaya Wahid, Yenny Wahid, Bambang Pamungkas, Cathy Sharon, Ncess Nabati, Sogi Indra Dhuaja, and Deasy Novianty.

“We explore the culture of South Sumatra for this show. We find out, what is characteristic of South Sumatra. One of them has songket. In essence, even though it is packaged modern, we do not damage or eliminate the standard,” Denny said.

In line with Denny, Tohpati’s music director also felt challenged to be involved in the Genta Sriwijaya show. Because in the era of the Srivijaya Kingdom, which was at 600 AD, the form of the music was unclear.

Meanwhile, art director Rangga Djoned said, he used video mapping techniques to produce visuals from the era of the Srivijaya Kingdom. He deliberately made the stage as minimal as possible so that he focused on video mapping content. “I am consulting with Mas Denny and Mas Kenthus. I am also a cultural researcher who influenced Srivijaya at that time,” said Rangga.

Former national team player Bambang Pamungkas, who became a guard said, this time his character gave more entertainment to the show. He will also improvise a lot. “I am serious on the soccer field. Here I am different. For me, the difficulty is that I have to go into an area where other players are professional, while I am an amateur in this show,” said the man who is familiarly called Bepe.
