Indonesia, who do not know about Indonesia, a country with a vast territory, a population that many, diverse cultural, ethnic, linguistic, ethnic and everything., Is no exception to music. Here we would like to introduce Indonesian traditional music to the world.

Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia (IndonesianRepublik Indonesia Indonesian pronunciation: [rɛpublik ɪndonesia]), is a sovereign state inSoutheast Asia and Oceania. Indonesia is an archipelago comprising thousands of islands.[7] It encompasses 34 provinces. Two provinces were Special Administrative Regions (one for being governed by pre-colonial monarchy and another one for using the Sharia Law), with an estimated population of over 252 million people, making it the world's fourth most populous country. Indonesia's republican form of government comprises an elected legislature and president. The nation's capital city is Jakarta. The country shares land borders with Papua New GuineaEast Timor, and Malaysia. Other neighboring countries include Singapore, the Philippines,AustraliaPalau, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Indonesia is a founding member of ASEAN and a member of the G-20 major economies. The Indonesian economy is the world's 17th largest by nominal GDP.
The Indonesian archipelago has been an important trade region since at least the 7th century, when Srivijaya and then later Majapahit traded with China and India. Local rulers gradually absorbed foreign cultural, religious and political models from the early centuries CE, and Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished. Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. Muslim traders brought the now-dominant Islam, while European powers brought Christianity and fought one another to monopolize trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. Following three and a half centuries of Dutch colonialism, Indonesia secured its independence after World War II. Indonesia's history has since been turbulent, with challenges posed by natural disasters, mass slaughtercorruption, separatism, a democratization process, and periods of rapid economic change.
Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. The largest – and politically dominant – ethnic group are the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a majority Muslim population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. The country has abundant natural resources, yet poverty remains widespread.
With these facts, here we would like to share to the world of traditional Indonesian music, music from different cultures in Indonesia. Hopefully this blog can help you to learn and know the traditional Indonesian music. Here we just want to bring traditional Indonesian music through blogs.
