Event Details

Infectious, hypnotic and soul-stirring—get ready to be enthralled by the sounds of dangdut koplo, brought to you by two of Indonesia’s most promising dangdut performers, Ochi Alvira and Syahiba Saufa! 

With a combined following of five million fans across TikTok and Instagram, internationally viral songs like Rasah Nyangkem 3 and millions of video views on YouTube, Ochi and Syahiba are certified stars with their own unique charms. Ochi’s sweet yet powerful vocals are complemented by the alluring gaze and lilting tone of Syahiba and together, their undeniable musical chemistry result in performances that you cannot look away from. 

Emerging out of the 1960s, dangdut is a popular Indonesian music style that arose from the grassroots, which fused sounds and instruments from multiple local and international cultures. The name itself is said to be derived from the sound of the two-headed gendang drum, which forms the foundation of most dangdut music. The dangdut koplo subgenre rose in popularity in the 2000s, incorporating even more influences from rock, electronica, hip hop and pop. The defining feature of dangdut koplo is the speed and complexity of its rhythms, which are distinctly faster than that of traditional dangdut, enticing people to move and dance along to its songs.  

Beyond the music, dangdut koplo is also a celebration of Indonesian culture and heritage. Through their performance, Ochi and Syahiba pay homage to the rich traditions and vibrant spirit of their homeland, transporting the audience to the bustling streets of Jakarta and the colourful markets of Surabaya. Backed by a seasoned seven-piece band from Surabaya, this duo is ready to thrill in their Singapore debut and first-ever overseas performance. Don’t miss your chance to experience dangdut koplo live, presented by two of its most prominent performers!
