BING SLAMET, ELLYA KHADAM AND OTHER ARTISTS - SOUVENIR PEMILU 1971



Here's a funny one. It's a propaganda record from Golongan Karya or Golkar, the political vehicle/party that represented the fascist Suharto dictatorship that ruled with an iron murdering fist over the nation for 32 years, commemorating the 1971 "elections".... Songs from Bing Slamet, Tanty Josepha, Ellya Khadam, M. Sanip, Vivi Sumanti, Cillya Sumanti, Lenny Beselaar and Jimmy Samallo....

  1. I take it there's a very complicated relationship going on with this Suharto fellow. Kind of like a beloved, but thoroughly paranoid and psychotic father.

  2. not beloved but much feared, at least when he was in charge.... many, many people are hunkering back for his time, not because they loved him so much but because in those days at least they could eat, after his downfall the pack of wolves under him took over the country and they're still in charge now, cruel, corrupt and arrogant as he was, he understood that you gotta make sure people can eat, the lot that is now in charge couldn't care less....
