"Kenny G has produced masterpiece of world-class music, and Prambanan is also a genuine masterpiece of Indonesia that has been recognized by the world community. So, Prambanan Jazz music is a fusion of creativity and a place called masterpiece," the Prambanan Jazz initiator Anas Syahrul Alimi said here on Sunday.
Apart from Kenny G, some famous musicians such as the new diva Isyana Tompi and Sarasvati will enliven the Prambanan Jazz event, Alimi said.
