Inul Daratista

We will continue the post about dangdut.

Inul is a famous dangdut singer. The great thing about inul is, she is pioneer of goyang dangdut that lead to major controversy.

Inul comes up with new “goyang” which we call as “ngebor” (drill). She spin her hip so quickly that look like drilling something. This “ ngebor” lead to major controversy.

Some people said “ngebor” is very erotic. And it is a form of pornoaction that must be censored. They demand that “ngebor” must be stopped because it can degradated children morality.

On other hand, some people said “ngebor” is an artistic dance. That is a form of human expression. So they said “ngebor” must seen as a result of human creativity.

Well, because of those major controversies, Inul itself become famous. She becomes an actress movie, commercial model, etc.

After that, there are many dangdut singer who follow Inul’s idea. New “goyang” emerged, like “ngecor”, “khayang”, and “patah-patah”. Each of this “goyang” are popularized by different singer.

Finnaly, dangdut has come to new era.

We call it “topeng monyet”. This is not a mask which takes after monkey face or even masks that used by monkey. Monkey mask is an attraction parade did by a monkey and its trainer, that monkey will do activity that take after human activity. Like ride bicycle, get to make-up, job going, shopping, etc.

We not necessarily go to a specific place to watch monkey mask show, since those shows will visit us. This is a road show where they travel the entire place that profitable for show and expect audience to give money for action what they do.
