Unlike with some years ago, or around 90's, indonesian music lovers prefer to...
...hear if a song or see the singer/band from abroad. malaysia song even more popular at the time of the songs from the indonesian musicians. young people at that time feel more proud if the music is heard in music such as Guns N Roses, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, or Metallica, rather than listening to songs from Koes Plus, Chrisye, or God Bless.
Not only that, even bands indonesia at that time always put 1-2 songs with English lyrics. despite all of that and just follow the trend seemed to be forced.
However, at this time, all the stories that have been passed. singer/band from indonesia at this time already showed enthusiasm for the music indonesia. many bands it appears with the quality that is not less great musicians with even overseas. not only that, indonesian musicians can even penetrate the world music with a positive appreciation of world music lovers. Anggun is a real example as indonesian singer and the quality of singing is recognized by the world. I hope more and more singer/band that can penetrate of music in the world.
