'Jaipong' dance becomes latest victim of pornography law
Abdul Khalik , The Jakarta Post , JAKARTA | Sat, 02/07/2009 8:47 AM | Headlines

The controversial pornography law has been blasted for targeting cultural heritage, after West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan used it as a legal basis to forbid Jaipong dancers from wearing "sexy" costumes and executing "provocative" dance moves.

The West Java administration's ban has prompted severe criticism from artists and legislators who blast it as a move to curb the traditional arts and culture of local people.

Bandung-born singer and dancer Dewi Gita said she did not see the need for the administration to delve into the matter when there were so many other problems affecting the province, including floods, poverty and expensive education.

“You see, Jaipong has nearly vanished. It is our unique heritage and we should do our best to keep it alive. But instead of supporting the internationally recognized dance, the authorities encourage its extinction,” she said.

Dewi, who traveled the world performing Jaipong in the 1990s, said that in the pre-reform era, she could travel abroad five times a year to perform, and always won huge praise from overseas audiences. But now, she said, a once-a-year international performance was considered lucky.

“Jaipong has nothing to do with pornography, it's merely a cultural expression. The dance is actually derived from the traditional ketuk tilu dance, which is a way that girls attract boys in Sundanese traditional customs. No wonder, the girl must be provocative and sexy,” she said.

Noted Sundanese artist Gugum Gumbira created Jaipong to help indigenous dance and music compete with Western popular shows, after then president Sukarno in 1961 banned rock and roll and other Western music.

Although an urban dance, Jaipong is based primarily on village forms of ketuk tilu and on pencak silat, the Indonesian martial arts.

Legislator and Padjadjaran University professor Chandra Wila said that besides suppressing cultural expression, the ban violated the porn law. “Jaipong is a form of cultural expression, and the law should protect it. Why do they want to ban it?”

Ik vraag me af:........????

Als deze governor van Jabar 's avonds met "dure hoogwaardigheidsbekleders" of andere "dure industrial bosses" in één of ander "dure Karaoke club of Nightclub zich zelve zit te verpozen, dan ook tegen de Jaipong danseressen zegt: "He Mbak, jangan jorok ya kalau menari." (Niet al te sexy ja als je danst)......

Of zou ie zeggen: "He Mbak, wah kok kurang jorokmu Hayoo, tambah tambah Mbak)( Waarom zo weinig jou sexy bewegingen? Kom , nog meer aub)....

Stelletje hypocrieten. (Moet je ze meemaken achter de schermen.)

Ik zou zeggen dat je de spijker op de kop hebt geslagen mas Henri, maar ik denk dat deze porno wet meer politiek dan iets anders is, meer het geval van " doe wat ik zeg, maar doe niet wat ik doe" ( als ze last hebben van plotselinge hitte golven, moeten ze maar elastieken pendeks kopen!) groetjes, si Kesas

Meneer heeft wel gelijk.
Inmiddels zijn er besprekingen geweest en men is tot de conclussie gekomen dat Jaipongan een legitieme culturele uiting is van de Sundanezen.
(Dit heb ik in een bandungse krant gelezen tijdens mijn vakantie.)

Opmerking : Er is wel een verschil tussen de echte Jaipongan en de NEP Jaipongan die echt erotisch en vulgair kan zijn .
Zeelfs ik wordt duizelig als ik al die (lichaams)bewegingen ziet.
Van mij mag het wel (niet verder vertellen).
