Again, i smell something so Indonesia on fashion world, and now PARIS Fashion Week for menswear spring/summer 2012 collection, when Yohji Yamamoto use "DANGDUT" (one of the most popular music genre in Indonesia) as backsound of his fashion show. When the others use electro-pop, our dearest oncle Yohji present you loose and flyaway collection complete with lilting classic dangdut and for your info, more or less this dangdut song tell about women who mourn her love story, she suffered for love and the other song tell about women who glad have a musician as her lover, oh god.
Wikipedia said that "Dangdut is a genre of Indonesian popular music that is partly derived from Malay, Arabic, and Hindustani music. It developed in the 1970s among working-class Muslim youth, but beginning in the late 1990s reached a broader following in low class Indonesians, Malaysia, and the southern Philippines.
A dangdut band typically consists of a lead singer, male or female, backed by four to eight musicians. Instruments usually include a tabla, mandolin, guitars, and synthesizers. The term has been expanded from the desert-style music to embrace other musical styles. Modern dangdut incorporates influences from Middle Eastern pop music, Western rock, house music, hip-hop music, contemporary R&B, and reggae."

So when i saw this video, honestly i want to give my all laugh, of course, who doesn't? try to typing "Dangdut" on youtube and you will know the reason, but im glad and thank to Yohji. Given so many dangdut singer who often show in Japan like Ike nurjanah, Iis Dahlia, Inul Daratista, and others, yes maybe Japanese loves dangdut.

This video, she is Inul Daratista, one of the most controversial dangdut singer, because she has soiled the good image of dangdut music due to her goyang ngebor performances. Even king of dangdut, Roma Irama, does not recognize her name in Dangdut Kingdom and wanted to expel her to go out from Indonesia. So cruel hahaha and ya they are so drama. Now who cares? she has become so rich now, great job Inul.
