WHAT IS DANGDUT

IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHAT DANGDUT IS, IN THE NEXT FEW LINES YOU'RE GOING TO DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF DANGDUT AND LEAVE THIS PAGE WITH A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT DANGDUT IS.
FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT DANGDUT.NET WEBSITE IS BASED IN THE USA, SPECIALIZING IN INDONESIAN MUSIC, INDONESIAN TRADITIONAL PERFORMING ARTS IN GENERAL AND THE DANGDUT MUSIC IN PARTICULAR.
DANGDUT MUSIC IS AN INDONESIAN MUSIC THAT COMBINES A MIX OF INDONESIAN TRADITIONAL INSTRUMENTS WITH FOREIGN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS LIKE WESTERN INSTRUMENTS AND MEDITERRANEAN INSTRUMENTS.
THE TRADITIONAL INDONESIAN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS ARE OF 3 TYPES:
1-"GAMELAN" FROM JAVA ISLAND (THE GAMELAN IS A FULL SET OF A LARGE VARIETY OF TRADITIONAL INDONESIAN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS).
2-TRADITIONAL "SERULING" (FLUTE).
3-TRADITIONAL "GENDANG" (DRUMS FROM THE ISLAND OF JAVA).
IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE INSTRUMENTS THERE IS A VARIETY OF WESTERN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS WHICH ARE USED ON A LARGE SCALE.
WESTERN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS ARE USED IN ALL DANGDUT MUSIC SETUPS AND PRODUCTIONS:
4-ELECTRIC GUITARS AND BASE.
5-FULL WESTERN DRUM SETS.
6-ORGANS.
AND SOMETIMES:
7-ACCORDIONS
8-VIOLINS ARE ALSO USED IN CERTAIN TYPE OF DANGDUT STYLES.
WHEN USED, THEY MAKE AN EXCELLENT QUALITY ADDITION WITH INCREDIBLE RESULTS OF DANGDUT MUSIC.
9-THE TAMBOURINE WHICH IS A MEDITERRANEAN INSTRUMENT IS ALWAYS USED AS WELL.

AS A GENERAL RULE, THE ABOVE 9 INSTRUMENTS ARE NEVER USED TOGETHER TO PLAY ANY OTHER KIND OF MUSIC, EXCEPT DANGDUT.
THAT'S WHY DANGDUT IS A VERY EXCEPTIONAL AND A VERY UNIQUE MUSIC.

DANGDUT MUSICIANS ARE EXCELLENT ARTISTS, THEY USE ALL THE ABOVE INSTRUMENTS TOGETHER EXTREMELY WELL.
SOME ADVANCED MUSICIANS MANAGE TO SWITCH BETWEEN TRADITIONAL AND WESTERN INSTRUMENTS LIVE ON STAGE SMOOTHLY WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM.
THOSE MUSICIANS LINE UP THE INSTRUMENTS AROUND THEM AND SWITCH BETWEEN THEM BACK AND FOURTH SMOOTHLY AND SURELY WITHOUT INTERRUPTING THE LIVE MUSIC, AND THEY PASS UNNOTICED AND THEY PRODUCE INCREDIBLE MUSIC.
MASTERS OF THEIR ART, THEIR PERFORMANCE IS SUCH A MIND BLOWING EXPERIENCE TO LISTEN TO AND TO WATCH.
DANGDUT MUSICIANS ARE MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE, THEY PLAY ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT COMBINATION OF INSTRUMENTS, AND THEIR DANGDUT MUSIC IS THE NICEST AND COOLEST MUSIC.

LIVE DANGDUT MUSIC BANDS USUALLY PERFORM ON A HIGHER STAGE IN FRONT OF STANDING MASS AUDIENCE ENJOYING THE GREAT SOUNDS OF DANGDUT.

THERE ARE MANY STYLES OF DANGDUT MUSIC, TO NAME FEW:

-DANGDUT KOPLO (FROM EAST JAVA ISLAND)
-DANGDUT SUNDA (FROM SUNDA IN INDONESIA)
-DANGDUT ROCK (ROCK MUSIC STYLE)
