President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is scheduled to watch performances at the Java Jazz music festival, at Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran from March 4 – 6.
“First Lady [Ani Yudhoyono] and palace officials, and probably several ministers, will accompany [the President],” presidential spokesman Julian Aldrin Pasha said Friday.
Julian said he did not know which performances the President planned to attend. Last year, the Yudhoyonos watched an on-stage performance of iconic singer Diane Warren.
This year, the festival, under the banner “Remarkable Indonesia, Harmony Under One Nation”, is featuring world-class musicians including Santana, George Benson and Corinne Bailey Ray.
