Dangdut!


Here is a fine example of this style of music.  Mostly influenced by Indian soundtracks, having a strong Middle Eastern influence, I’d be interested to know how much Indonesian influence it actually carries. The subject matter is almost always sentimental and about love. Anyhow, this girl has a good voice and pretty too. Anyone know who she is?

Middle class Indonesians deride it, but it is extremely popular among the masses. I love it, but seldom go to a performance because the audience is inevitably almost entirely composed of young Indonesian guys. Not that I’m against that. 

You can easily find a dangdut venue, it’s the place with all the motorcycles parked outside.
