M. Nasir and The MPO (2012)
M. Nasir and The MPO (2012) was their first concert together, led by Kevin Field. It was a two night show, opened with Andalusia, M. Nasir’s song won Best Song in Anugerah Juara Lagu 1999. The show was then continued with his other popular songs such as Kias Fansuri, Keroncong Untuk Ana, Mustika, Bonda, Kepadamu Kekasih, Apokalips, Juwita Citra Terindah, for the first segment.
More of his hits were included in the second segment; Hati Emas, Suatu Masa, Sahabat Gua, Raikan Cinta, Mentera Semerah Padi, Sentuhan Listrikmu, and lastly to conclude the night, Ada. The audience really enjoyed the whole two hours performance that night. Plus, M. Nasir once in a while would take the opportunity to shake hands and interact with his audience. Made the night even more special for them.
As everyone know, M. Nasir is very significant with his poetic lyrics and music arrangement. Collaborating such big talent with an orchestra like MPO is clearly the best decision they have ever made. We should not miss their comeback this November.
