Following the successful of the previous event with Sandrayati Fay and Leanna Rachel, Sunday Music Session was back held on 8th of October 2017 performed by Manja Band, one of the island’s favourite young and energetic alternative rock bands.

If you have ever heard about The Mangroove, Bali’s finest reggae band and AMI (Anugrah Music Indonesia) nominated, then you must have known the side project called Manja. The music is all about dreamy pitch under the genre of alternative rock and indie/prog’ rock with a bit touch of psychedelic. They are known for the arrange covers in their own interpretation as well as showcasing their original songs.

Started from 7pm, Manja was on the stage with James on vocal while holding his guitar, Nick was so ready with his electric guitar and Mark’s finger was up on the keyboard. Radiohead’s High & Dry was the first cover song they played and successfully turned the vibe into such a romantic out-dine. Then, song from Coldplay, The Kooks, Daft Punk, Childish Gambino, and their own songs were beautifully played with their renditions and twists until 9pm.
