Another excellent jaipong cassette from the Karawang group, check out the first song where they're using a drum computer, way back in the 80's these guys were experimenting with a style they called "break-pong" which was influenced by early hip hop.... Missing the last track because of damage....
Excellent calung cassette from Darso with the Calung Layung Sari group and this is the original master tape from the Asmara label....

And one more, this one, two musicians from the Sumedang area, Kang Asep playing the Rebab Tarawangsa and Kang Jaja playing the Kacapi Tarawangsa....
This came out a couple of years ago, I never posted it because I don't want to mess with peoples income but I checked, you can't find this any where anymore and I'm pretty sure the guys behind this got their money out of this so I think it's ok to post it now.... Very, very beautiful studio and field recordings of Mang Ayi and Wa Itok from the city of Subang with Toni playing the rebab and Ali playing the kecapi....

Here's another great calung cassette from Darso with Neneng Y.S. and Adang S. Nurputra playing the violin....
If there's one thing I hate it's dead links and fixing them, a waste of time that I could spend uploading new stuff, mostly I don't have the files any more, have to re-record it, all very time consuming, so mostly I ignore those dead links....
Well I still had the files for this album and since it is a fantastic album, here's a re-upload....

Here's some classic dangdut at it's finest, the queen and the king of dangdut Elvy Sukaesih and Rhoma Irama with Orkes Melayu Soneta. This one came out in 1975 and this is a Malaysian pressing....

More tarling, you probably noticed, I'm really getting into this stuff, very hard to find but I recently bought a lot of tarling cassettes from an old radio station in Cianjuran and me and my wife took over a back-packer hotel recently, renovation is almost done now, I'll be playing lots of music there and I think a lot of this tarling stuff is just perfect for in the day time there (which is the reason I've been posting so much of it lately). You probably noticed, there are many different styles in this genre and this cassette is in the tarling teng-dung style, kind of simular to dangdut in a way, very swinging music....
