Leiden University Libraries Digital Collections

Southeast Asian Pop Music KITLV

This sub collection is actually a jukebox filled with Indonesian pop music. The original analogue vinyl records have been digitized. Thousands of records are now online available with a single click. They include recordings from the nostalgic Keroncong songs of the Dutch East Indies, like 'Bengawan Solo' sung by Rudi van Dalm, to the old-fashioned folk music modernized by adding electric guitars, keyboards and drums as in the so-called 'Pop Keroncong' sung by Koes Plus.

Imagine your computer as a new gramophone to enjoy in your home parlor. We invite you to listen to the songs.
New recordings are added to the Jukebox periodically.
