In honor of Indonesian Independence Day, here’s a list of all the singers of Indonesian descent that have performed at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Dalam rangka memperingati Hari Kemerdekaan Indonesia, inilah daftar semua penyanyi keturunan Indonesia yang pernah tampil di Kontes Lagu Eurovision.
- Only Anggun is of pure Indonesian descent (that’s why she’s at the top); all others are Dutch-Indonesian.
- The members of Hearts of Soul also represented Belgium at Eurovision 1977, and one of them (Stella Maessen) did so again in 1982.
- Other than 1972, Sandra Reemer also represented the Netherlands in 1976, and again in 1979 as lead singer of the band Xandra.
- Only Justine Pelmelay has released her Eurovision entry in Indonesian, under the title Hanya Engkau Saja.
- Credits to Annika for the inspiration to make this.
