Ada Cinta (Acha Septriasa and Irwansyah)

It is more than a year ago that I heared the song Ada Cinta (by Acha Septriasa and Irwansyah) for the first time. I immediately liked the vocals and the beautiful guitar combined with the orchestra. At that time I didn’t seriously plan to make a cover of the song, but I tried to learn the guitar. I like this classical style of playing, and I started playing along with the song. Than, a few months ago, I got in touch with Ella Meilianda. Ella is from Banda Aceh and lives in Enschede in the Netherlands now, and her voice appeared to be the perfect match for this song.

We made plans to record the song together, resulting in this video and an mp3 that you can download here. We had a nice time while practising and recording. If you watch the video until the end you will know what I mean ………

  2. It’s gorgeous. I don’t understand the lyrics, but it isn’t necessary because you make the mood and emotion shine through. Thanks for sharing that.

  3. And THAT’S NOT FARE! Why didn’t you sing like this in the first place 😉 Really awesome, amazing. Keep doin’ this kind of ballads. It suits you. And if you’re up for a challenge, try something fast like de Wizzard of Oz. I think you’d be surprised about your possibilities and the joy you’ll find. Good luck with your study, take care, and never let someone, somewhere, take away your freedom to sing!
