The KID BROTHERS – Kala Sang Surya Gemilang

A family band named The Kids with Idham, Iromy and Lydia established in 1967 before they were teenagers. Later when youngers family Inang, Iwang and Imaniar joined in, the name was changed to The Kid Brothers which brought them into higher popularity by appearing often on TVRI. Public compared them to the Osmond Brothers at that time for being a family band, or the Jackson which they also knew how to entertain their audiences interactively. They only released one eponymous album including OST Ali Topan Anak Jalanan the movie in 1979 (nDy)
Pernah hadir grup musik keluarga Said Kelana bernama The Kids pada 1967. Band bocah terdiri atas Idham, Iromy juga Lydia. Lalu menjadi The Kid Brother saat adik mereka telah melewati usia 5 tahunan yakni Imaniar, Inang dan Iwang. Kerap dijuluki The Jackson Family versi lokal krn sering mengusung lagu fungky plus interaksi aktif duo Lydia dan Imaniar. Atraksi duel saxophone menjadi ciri khas meski tampak kebesaran dibanding tubuh mungil kedua perempuan cilik sbg bintang TVRI. Era dimasa musik amat bergairah dan apresiatif, nilai bagus disebut bagus tanpa meninjau dari suku dan agamanya apa. Guruh Soekarno Putra turut mendukung album The Kid Brothers lewat Kala Sang Surya Gemilang, versi rancak tembang Kala Sang Surya Tenggelam oleh vokal Chrisye nan melankolis. Lagu Gemilang hadir dalam film Ali Topan Anak Jalanan dibintangi Junaidi Salat dan Yatie Octavia tahun 1977. Agaknya kelompok anak ajaib ini hanya merilis satu album studio resmi akibat sibuk manggung, mereka bagian fenomena musik Indonesia. (nDy)
