Finding a Star
Coca-Cola Indonesia asked Music Dealers to find an Indonesian artist whose natural style fit with the energy of “The World is Ours,” which is an infectious blend of American pop and Brazilian samba that sounds the way Carnival in Rio de Janeiro feels. Music Dealers was to help record the local version of the anthem and schedule live performances, press opportunities, create music videos, and more.
One Song, Two Voices
Music Dealers scoured the native talent of Indonesia in search of an artist whose sound matched the charisma of the song and the positivity of the campaign. An Indonesian singer-songwriter with cultural roots as diverse as Coca-Cola’s “The World’s Cup” campaign, Millane Fernandez was a natural selection for the project. “Dunia Kita (The World is Ours)” blends Fernandez’ upbeat vocals and Indonesian lyrics with the pop beat of the original.
