JAIPONGAN: THE MUSIC OF JAVA’S RED-LIGHT DISTRICT


In the underground night clubs of West Java, female dancers, backed by an ensemble of drums, cymbals, gongs, and fiddle, invite male spectators to join them, often for a small fee. They perform a highly stylized dance (ketuk tilu) with Hindu roots that was originally performed during fertility ceremonies. The performers also sometimes incorporate movements associated with Indonesian martial arts (pencak silat). Together, the dancers, musicians, and spectators create a nightly atmosphere thick with raw sensuality and sex appeal. This mixtape, compiled and selected by super-digger Madrotter, presents an enthralling romp through the sounds of Java’s underground nightlife focusing on the music and art of jaipongan.
