The piece contains a scratch-able code or link which you can use to listen to “Rangkum”.

Alas, the song and video for “Rangkum” is here now in all its glory. Starring Al Imran Karim as the main cast of the video, Polka Wars interpret the single in such artistic way.
The video took place at Jakarta’s urban area and features a choreographed movements from the lead cast.
