Music is a very good medium in building tolerance, friendship, togetherness with colleagues and friends, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has said.

“Music will certainly give color to the future of our children. (Through music) They will have a sense of tolerance, a sense of mutual help among each other,” the President said when attending a musical performance in Solo Paragon Hotel, Central Java Province, Sunday (8/9).

His grandson, Jan Ethes, was seen as one of the performers in the event held by a music school in the city. On the event with theme “Music My Friend Ensemble Concert”, Jan sang a song called “Sang Surya” with his colleagues and played a song called “Happy Drive” with a keyboard.
