Report: Puti Chitara Goodnight Tour in Malang with ZIO from Dialog Dini Hari and Christabel Annora
On Sunday (5/14), Puti Chitara held a small and intimate concert at Rumah Opa Malang for her Goodnight Tour. Before her performance, there were two musicians as the opening acts. Christabel Annora, a talented singer and pianist from Malang became the first performer. She brought her own tunes from “Talking Days” album as well as a cover of Efek Rumah Kaca called “Desember”. Upon cheering crowd, Christabel Annora’s stage was followed by ZIO who is known as the bassist of folk band from Bali, Dialog Dini Hari. Performing solo, ZIO played his original compositions on bass as well as keyboard and also showcases his gorgeous voice to the audience. Despite all the awkwardness of performing alone, ZIO managed to interact with the audience and told stories behind his songs.
As the last and main performer of the day, Puti Chitara clad in an all black ensemble greeted the crowd that night. She did not come alone, as guitarist Mirza accompanied her keyboard set with his electric guitar. In some new arrangements, Puti sang the songs from her “Goodnight” album and debut solo album.
