Keroncong band performance

It’s actually the name of aย ukulele-like instrument & anย Indonesianย musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The soundย chrong-chrong-chrongย comes from this instrument). So, the bandย consists of aย flute, a violin ๐ŸŽป , a melody guitar ๐ŸŽธ , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽค

 

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has learnt that 1๏ธโƒฃ ukulele named “cak”, a steel-stringed. The instrumentalist strums chords with up to 8๏ธโƒฃ strums per beat in 4/4 rhythm. The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings. As a set, both the “cak” & “cuk” form an interlocking pair that mostly gives Kroncong its characteristic kron & chong ๐Ÿ˜Š

No โŒ longer associated with the religious / mystical ceremonies in the past years
