I grew up listening to Indonesian Pop Songs at the same time I was exposed to Mario Lanza, Caruso, Nat King Cole, Teresa Teng (Taiwan), Alan Tam (Hong Kong) and pop songs from all over the world. Yes, I lived in Indonesia for the first decade of my life (that translated to being in the same country as Obama was) and loved a great many things the Indonesian people has to offer. For one, it has an advanced music and movie industry even back then.
Indonesian people sings and acts well. For some reason, they are born-natural and at ease with their roles as singers, dancers and actors/actresses. A great deal probably has to do with its culture.
Here's a sample of some of its pop music for your listening pleasure... To me, the Indonesian pop songs are very similar to Latin's. Romantic, easy listening and simply beautiful!
