Chapter Summary

Today's relevance of that long bygone era of early kroncong, is the actual creative aftermath of the 1970s revival of kroncong asli in Indonesia. This chapter looks more closely at the contribution of newcomers from Holland to the early history of kroncong, the common source of the two separately conducted postcolonial revivals. Between 1880 and 1920 the term kroncong was fresh and exciting for more than one generation of aficionados. Tugu's first settlers, in the mid-1600s, had a background in Portuguese Melaka as a deported group of slave labourers from the Portuguese coasts of India. The specialty for which Tugu was well-known in the city was dengdeng, a pork conserve. The serious acceptance of kroncong as a type of folk song had its ultimate European champion in the Flemish folklorist and singer Emiel Hullebroeck.
