Got back from Sulawesi in november, and bought about 15 CD's with Indonesian pop music. The band I like the most is the ADA band. I bought the CD's Heaven of Love (2004) and Rhomantic Rhapsody (2006). There are some fantastic songs on these CD's. They are very good musicians. I don't care about their background and how poor or rich their family is. And I don't care what other artists think about them. This is about music and personal taste. Other CDs I bought are from Ungu (CD Melayang with the beautiful song Demi Waktu), Peterpan, Dewa 19, Koes Plus, Nidji, and some compilation CDs like Superstar 2006 and a CD with some love songs (Demi Nama Cinta). A lot of this music I like a lot, but not everything. Another song I like a lot is Jika from Ari Lasso and Melly Goeslaw. It was a big hit some years ago. It was a very exceptional song with respect to chords used, melody and harmonies. I think you can find it on youtube as well.

By the way, I think learning bahasa from popmusic is not a good way. It often happens to me that when I read a lyric I do know all the words, but still don't understand the meaning. I think it is often too poetic to learn a language from. But it does no harm to try ......

Removed to prevent your adress from being spammed. Click this to go to the user profile. Balibreeze: I understand what you're saying. It's just not fair to use racist or semi-rasist remarks; I hate that for now and forever.

And I know, sometimes I get angry too. When we visited Bali last summer, there were bule tourists from the Netherlands behaving very ignorant and disrespectful to the locals. It really gave me the urge to chop off their heads. Especially because I felt they were doing that on my 'territory'.
But did they behave that way, because they are white people? Not likely... there are tons of bule's that do not have the intention to dominate others or to behave disrespectful to Indonesians.

15 CD's? That's great! Melly Goeslaw is nice too. Do you know her song called 'I'm Falling in Love'? Very romantic, especially for listening with your woman Emoticon: Wink . Jika is nice too and it's on YouTube:

Nidji, I just listened to I'm falling in love here: http://moonirah.imeem.com/musi(...)/im_falling_in_love/ . When I read your post I was just wondering if your user name has anything to do with the Indonesian pop band Nidji.

Well, yes it does!

Their 'Hapus Aku' is such a great song. However the album is rather disapointing.

Nidji, That song is on the CD Breakthru' . Its one of the CDs I bought in Sulawesi. It is not my favourite CD either, although some of the songs are OK (Hapus Aku being one of them). I'm playing it now while typing.

I didn't know much about the Indonesian pop scene, most CDs I bought were recommendations by people I met along our trip. I met a lot of musicians (I'm one myself), and we played guitar and sang together on many occasions. I was positively surprised by a lot of the music, although now it's probably a bit biased by travel memories.

I recently started doing some home recordings of Indonesian songs. I will publish them on the internet. I'll post the link when it's ready.

Hi Nidji,

I am glad you like it. I certainly will make more songs. This is only the beginning...... I'm not sure about Hapus Aku, but I will consider it seriously. Thanks for the chords.

By the way, I read some of your posts in other topics. Very interesting ....

I agree that Dewa does not use slang or bahasa prokem in their lyrics. I have been a fan of Dewa since 1994 and being a Malaysian I can attest that I understand every single word of Dewa's choice for lyrics - no slang used at all, at least not to my Malay ears. In fact the Bahasa Indonesia that the band uses is pretty standard. If anything the lyrics are beautiful and poetic, a key point that has won them fans in Malaysia apart from their uniquely interesting and matured form of music.

What I'm trying to say is, if Malaysian fans can appreciate Dewa's music (and other Indonesian bands), then the lyrics make sense. The only way the words can make sense to us Malaysians is if they are written in a language that is understandable in both Indonesian and Malaysian cultures, i.e. formal and standard Bahasa Indonesia.

So in conclusion, it is perfectly OK to listen to established Indonesian bands like Dewa, Gigi, Peterpan, etc, to learn Bahasa Indonesia pronunciation or even grammar. Just my two cents, folks. Terima kasih for reading. Emoticon: Bye bye

Hi, music-lovers ...... recently I'd heard by coincidence about this musical searchengine this soft-programme was made by a German Rainer Typke , it is purely aimed at melodies , that you are able to whistle too ..... he said his software-program was meant to search the web for melodies or music piracy ....

The old authority of the Schwann-catalogue ...... in the 'old days' they have all the records of all American reproduced materials of Lp's, etc.

Qasidah as an example:
Encyclopaedia Donald Clarke 1989, 2005

QASIDAH
Popular music form found throughout the Arabic sphere of influence from Egypt to the Indonesian archipelago, lyrics originally in classical Arabic but embracing local languages with the expansion of Islam. There is a more than superficial similarity with the Persian-derived ghazal form of India; like ghazal, qasidah is part of a literary tradition, and reveals the multi-natured characteristics of Arabic. Thus it is open to varying interpretations, literal and figurative. Taking as its primary source of inspiration love poetry, it speaks of love on a variety of romantic and religious, profane and spiritual planes. Like ghazal, lyrically contemporary qasidah embraces all manner of religious, secular and political subjects. Performers called qasa'id range in style from the Egyptian Ali Mahmud (d '43) who came from reading the Koran to singing religious verse to the pop-qasidah stylings of the Indonesian all-woman group Nasida Ria, who typify the music's popular face in its easterly form: based in Semarang, they have taken the Arabic-derived form and mixed in Indonesian influences. Keadilan: Qasidah Music From Java on Piranha '91 is a good example of their appealing music. It contains many points of reference for anyone familiar with Indian popular music such as filmi. Instrumentation is typically Western but with Indonesian overlays, incl. flute, guitar, mandolin, electric bass, violin, a range of percussion and keyboards. Like many genres of Indonesian popular music, language apart, it contains few features which might be described as markedly or specifically Indonesian. Nasida Ria's cautionary 'Bila Ingin Bahagia' ('If You Want To Be Happy') deals with morality issues aroused by pre-nuptial sex. Nasida Ria's repertoire is typical of much qasidah music in its recognition of an Islamic worldview.
