Formed in 1997, this Indo Indie band is called Mocca. Despite being an Indonesian – who doesn’t grow up there, I’ve never heard of them before. Ironically, until I watch a SNSD variety show “Hello Baby”. I had wondering since the first episode who’s the singer behind the smoothing background songs. Some little-known + underrated American singer I guessed.
I got a little shock when I saw Indonesian titles under the band’s name on music download portal www.4shared.com. Must be the wrong Mocca I thought. I thought wrong.
Very strangely/ironically/weirdly, the band is not very popular in their homeland. However, they’re so popular in countries like South Korea their songs feature in CFs (commercials for products) and TV shows so prominently they got invited onto radio, TV programmes and even held multiple concerts there.
Anyway for doubters, Arina, the main vocalist, is not an ABC. haha.
Mocca, true talents. Baik ah, Indonesia! LOL.

Appearing in this programme is pretty surprising, the fact that they’re non-Koreans. Earning this appearance in the show shows that they’re indeed something in Korea.
Stars like Rain, SNSD, Super Junior, etc etc etc have appeared as guests in this programme.
SNSD’s TV show Factory Girl having Mocca’s songs as background
The producers of SNSD TV shows like Mocca very much har. Though Hello Baby and Factory Girl have different producers, they seem to have the same taste for background music!
