Is Jokowi The Coolest Governor in The World?

Joko Widodo also known as Jokowi, a metalhead, currently Jakarta governor, and running for the next Indonesia president.

This audio was recorded at the end of 2013’s Metallica show in Jakarta. 50k metalheads call his name “JOKOWI, JOKOWI, JOKOWI…”. He probably is the first governor who ever get this kind of treatment.

This is by no means an endorsement of his political positions. But as a Jakartan and a metalhead myself, to ever experience this moment is superbly beautiful.
