In conjunction with Indonesia's Women's Day, or also known as Mother's Day, which is celebrated every December 22, Dialita will be holding a concert, called Lagu Untuk Anakku (Songs for My Children): Songs of Survivors.

The concert will feature performances by renowned female singers such as Bonita and Kartika Jahja, as well as the women of Dialita Choir. The choir consists of women whose parents, relatives and friends were captured, tortured and exiled during the 1950s-60s anti-communist purge in Indonesia.
