Q&A With Susi and Silaen Music
Why should clients consider live music for their special event?
Nothing quite compares to live music when it comes to setting the mood for a wedding or special event. The spirit and energy from a high-quality live performance kindle an emotional connection. Choosing the right Bali wedding band ensemble and a carefully crafted playlist are essential for creating a truly special and memorable event.
How long have you and the band performed in Bali?
Originally from North Sumatra, Indonesia, I am a professional vocalist and the lead singer for Silaen Music. Having performed for hundreds of wedding receptions and special events at many of Bali’s top venues in Uluwatu, Jimbaran, Seminyak, Canggu, and Ubud since 2007, we understand the nuances of live wedding performances in Bali.
Why has Silaen Music recently been selected to headline some of Bali’s top wedding events, covered by international press?
We are sincerely grateful to have developed an international following by some really incredible event planners and have been chosen to perform at some high-profile destination wedding events here in Bali. Besides performing, I personally really enjoy getting to know our clients. Clients and planners alike often prefer a boutique-style live performance for their Bali weddings and special events. The team and I work hard to personalize each performance, from choosing the right ensemble and sound system to curating a playlist and special requests, to reflect the style of the event and the client’s musical tastes.
Are you able to tailor your performance and work with clients who may not have event planning experience?
Live performances can be very technical and many of our clients don’t quite understand all of the necessary technical details, but that is alright. We offer a variety of ensemble options, from an intimate, acoustic trio to a full Bali band with drums, and provide personal assistance in navigating the technical aspects of sound systems and lighting. Whether it’s a strings ensemble for a black tie event or an acoustic trio for an intimate wedding reception, Silaen Music is a professional team that you can count on to provide a memorable performance on your special day. Having performed live in hundreds of Bali weddings and special events, we are happy to share our insights and offer suggestions.

To ensure the best quality performance, we strongly encourage you to arrange your ensemble and sound system together, whenever possible. If you have questions, our experienced audio team is here to help you plan your event.
