Abstract


The drum beat of Daun Pulus Keser Bojong or Keser Bojong is the most popular drum beat in West Java in 1980s. This paper aims to explore a variety of Jaipongan drum beats in the Daun Pulus Keser Bojong composition on descriptive analytic basis. By this method, the author explored a variety of musical elements that characterized the song with its particular drum beats, either in their forms and structures. Further, other musical instruments such as bonang, kecrek, lagu, gending, kempul, and goong were also taken into account. Among those characteristics is the dominant improvised drum beats at the beginning of the song (pangkat) with a quite long duration, which is nine times of gong sounding that never existed in other previous traditional ensembles.
