LAGU - LAGU
Indonesia Pop Music Collection Special Exhibition
After dealing with different social problems and conflicts, Indonesia achieved independence in 1945 and Sukarno as the first president carried out inadequate actions that generated a coup by Suharto, but despite his efforts, the cultural freedom that Indonesia needed at that time was filled only with new liberalism until 1970 where several communists were disappearing.
Did you know Lagu – Lagu means ¨songs¨ in Indonesia?
¨Lagu Lagu¨ is the official title of this special exhibition based on the collection of pop music from Indonesia between the years 1960-1980 where overviews its history and society since the songs of this musical genre represent different periods that Indonesia suffered in the past.
