January Low Siva and Raziman Sarbini in Ketuk Tilu. A duet by Dutch-Indonesian choreographer Gerard Mosterd, exploring the underground and in recent years blacklisted, polyrhythmic Sundanese dance and music form “Jaipongan”. A popular, rebellious, Indonesian answer to Western rock and roll under president’s Soekarno’s decree in the sixties. This presidential law prohibited the copying of Western dance and music such as rock and jive. The dynamic, ecclectic duet captures the spirit of the controversial Bandung based and liberation craving style, based on the ronggeng performance, silat and rock and roll.
