The Long-Awaited Reunion: AKB48 and JKT48 Join Hands for a Concert in Jakarta!
AKB48 reunited with their sister group JKT48 in Jakarta to hold a joint concert on February 20th, 2015. It was the first time in 3 years for the two groups to perform together since 2012’s Japan Pop Culture Festival.
“AKB48 and JKT48 CONCERT TOGETHER ~Holding hands together with the first sister~ Presented by WAKUWAKU JAPAN 1st Anniversary~” commemorated the 1st anniversary of WAKUWAKU JAPAN, a channel that broadcasts Japanese content overseas. A sold-out audience of 3,500 fans were packed into Kota Kasablanka Main Hall for this long-awaited concert.
Even with former JKT48 member Rena Nozawa and current JKT48 member Haruka Nakagawa playing the roles of interpreter during the stage talk, in the end, the music was able to transcend any language barriers between the two countries. Sakiko Matsui played the piano for “Sakura no Hanabiratachi” as the fans sang along in Japanese and AKB48 did their best to sing “Aitakatta” in Indonesian. The final song of the night, “Koi Suru Fortune Cookie”, featured Haruka Nakagawa in the center position.
A broadcast of the live performance, including coverage of AKB48’s arrival in Indonesia, reunion with JKT48, and other footage you won’t be able to see elsewhere, is scheduled to be broadcast on Sky Perfect Satellite TV on March 28th.
