    Bandung

    ::bdng ::bdng ::bdng ::bdng ::bdng ::bdng ::bdng




    Bandung (/ˈbændʊŋ/ or /ˈbɑːndʊŋ/) (Indonesian: Kota Bandung) is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia, the country's third largest city by population, and second largest metropolitan area in Indonesia with a sprawling urban population of 8.6 million in 2011. Located 768 metres (2,520 ft) above sea level, approximately 140 kilometres (87 miles) south east of Jakarta, Bandung has cooler temperatures year-round than most other Indonesian cities. The city lies on a river basin surrounded by volcanic mountains. This topography provides a good natural defense system, which was the primary reason for the Dutch East Indies government's plan to move the colony capital from Batavia to Bandung.

    The Dutch colonials first established tea plantations around the mountains in the eighteenth century, and a road was constructed to connect the plantation area to the capital (180 kilometres (112 miles) to the northwest). The Dutch inhabitants of the city demanded establishment of a municipality (gemeente), which was granted in 1906, and Bandung gradually developed itself into a resort city for plantation owners. Luxurious hotels, restaurants, cafes and European boutiques were opened, hence the city was nicknamed Parijs van Java (Dutch: "The Paris of Java"). (the reason was for the prostitution in the city though )

    I suspect some #dangdut will prevail this edition.

    I have to emphasize that I'm not that fond with dangdut, just like the catchy one, not in general.

    and in this region, the dangdut is too traditional (which I don't like it) :'D but this region has something special that similar to dangdut :'D

    Re: BANDUNG | WV 40 SF 1 | Layur and Rara Sekar - Youth

    ::bdng ::bdng WV 40 : Layur and Rara Sekar - Youth ::bdng ::bdng







    Rara Sekar is a female singer from Bandung. She is female vocalist from "Banda Neira", an Indie Band. If you search her name in Soundcloud, you will find her base (and the band base) from Ubud, Bali. This is caused by she formed "Banda Neira" with her partner while she was working in Bali, while actually she is originally from Bandung. Youth (Daughter Cover), is a collaboration between her and Layur, an instrumental electronic Indie Band from Yogyakarta.

    Good Luck !
