Special Guest: JKT48
Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, JKT48 is the international sister group of AKB48. Similar to AKB48, JKT48 performs almost on a daily basis at their theater located inside a shopping
mall in Jakarta. As “idols you can meet” the group builds and flourishes through fan support.
There are a total of 71 members with three teams, Team J, Team K, and Trainees. Currently, Haruka Nakagawa and Rina Chikano from AKB48 perform as part of JKT48. In April this year, the first ever “General Election” to select the top members was held. JKT48 aims to be a national idol group, expanding from Jakarta to the rest of Indonesia, and from Asia to the World.
We are delighted to have JKT48 to perform at AFAID 2014 FIND LOVE JAPAN: Japanese Culture Presentation and JKT 48 Special Live stage segment on Saturday, 16 August 2014 at 10am.
