Dangdut is the most popular music genre in Indonesia that is partly derived from Hindustani, Malay and Arabic music. All Indonesian hear this music, but the real lover comes from middle and lower social class. The power of dangdut takes place on its easy listening sound and simple lyrics that depict almost all problematic life of most Indonesian people. That is why dangdut relatively close with daily life.

This story is focused on dangdut in suburban area, especially in Pantura (stands for Pantai Utara: northern coast of Java). Furthermore, this region has particular theme and uniqueness in dangdut history. The people of this region develops a hybrid music between dangdut and local folk-traditional music called tarling.

Tarling was named after the instruments dominantly used in this kind of music, gitar (guitar) and seruling (local fife). For most of the indonesian people, the hybrid music is also known as dangdut pantai utara.
