Very interesting! I had Gamelan classes for this whole semester and we saw a little about dangdut in World Music classes, but I never got to listen to much of it. Great!

Hi Rafael,

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The recording here dates from the 1960s - contemporary dangdut is much more pop-ified than what you're hearing in this clip. (It's from an out of print CD titled "Street Music of Java" - really nice compilation.)
