Whiskey And Soda – Roberto Delgado Orkes Keroncong

Horst Wende was a German bandleader and composer. He made easy-listening records under his own name as well as under the name Roberto Delgado. He was part of the wave of German-based easy-listening artists who were popular in the 1960s along with Bert Kaempfert and James Last. Roberto Delgado plays his version of Whisky And Soda, which was a hit for the blue beat band The Mopeds. Then he recorded his version in 1970 for the album This Is Reggae. Just for the info about this song being the theme for Indonesian show of Srimulat. It’s very interesting how music can travel around the world at that time around 70’s, this song was recorded in Germany and it’s widely famous in Indonesia.
Salah satu stafku purna tugas kemarin, di awal Oktober. Belum lagi beberapa berita duka saat pandemik. Bermakna ada perpisahan yg direncanakan, maupun kepergian secara mendadak. Lalu aku dapat ide buat bikin video tentang rekan kerja sekantor. Ternyata gak gampang mendata foto mereka, harus bongkar arsip pribadi. Untuk audio kupilih anthem jadul yg pernah beken sbg pembuka acara Srimulat. Berjudul Whiskey And Soda milik Roberto Delgado and His Orchestra asal Jerman. Lagu ini identik dgn pabrik ketawa Srimulat sejak go nasional via TVRI era 1982, telah kutambahkan musik keroncong agar ekslusif. Topik purna tugas dgn pamor Srimulat, juga Whiskey And Soda, punya kaitan erat dalam aspek dokumentasi dan sejarah. Banyak orang hebat dgn karya dahsyat di luar sana, lebih dihargai ketimbang hijaunya rumput sendiri. Namun buatku, rekan kerja dalam tiap peristiwa amat patut dikenang berupa kesan indah bersama. Video ini mewakili sulitnya menghargai karya teman sendiri, meski kadang gak nyambung mirip perbedaan wiski dgn soda. Juga apapun kisah berikut tiap kendala, kini telah lebur dalam kenangan pribadi, bukan tentang orang asing. Tiada hil yang mustahal demi kebersamaan. Selamat menikmati masa pensiun sbg langkah kebanggaan berikutnya. (nDy)
