    Indonesia Raya is the national anthem of Indonesia. The song was introduced by its composer, Wage Rudolf Supratman, at 28 October 1928 in a national youth convention in Batavia (now Jakarta). The song marked the birth of the nationalist movement in Indonesia.

    It was chosen as the national anthem when Indonesia proclaimed its independence at 17 August 1945.

    Jozef Cleber created Indonesia Raya arrangement for philharmonic orchestra in 1950.

    The Indonesian anthem is a show of independence, but not only against the Dutch. With the song, they declare to everyone that they don't need foreign help , because they say they are able to solve their problems on their own.

    Indonesia, tanah airku,

    Tanah tumpah darahku;

    Di sanalah aku berdiri

    Jadi pandu ibuku.

    Indonesia, kebangsaanku,

    Bangsa dan tanah airku,

    Marilah kita berseru:

    ‘Indonesia bersatu’.

    Hiduplah, tanahku!

    Hiduplah, negeriku!

    Bangsaku, rakyatku semuanya.

    Bangunlah jiwanya!

    Bangunlah badannya!

    Untuk Indonesia Raya!

    Indonesia tanah yang mulia

    Tanah kita yang kaya,

    Di sanalah aku berada,

    Untuk selama-lamanya,

    Indonesia tanah pusaka,

    Pusaka kita semuanya,

    Marilah kita mendoa:

    Indonesia bahagia!

    Suburlah tanahnya,

    Suburlah jiwanya,

    Bangsanya, rakyatnya semuanya!

    Sadarlah hatinya,

    Sadarlah budinya,

    Untuk Indonesia Raya.

    Indonesia tanah yang suci

    Tanah kita yang sakti,

    Di sanalah aku berdiri,

    ‘Njaga Ibu sejati,

    Indonesia tanah berseri,

    Tanah yang aku sayangi,

    Marilah kita berjanji:

    Indonesia abadi!

    Selamatlah rakyatnya

    Selamatlah putranya,
