Watanabe Hamako – Shina No Yoru (China night / She Ain’t Got No Yoyo)

 

Watanabe Hamako - Shina No YoruWatanabe Hamako – Shina No Yoru

I listen to this record quite often, but I only discovered recently that this song called Shina No Yoru (支那の夜, which means “China night”) had a special and controversial story. It was actually not so easy to find out who was its original performer, so that I had to make several researches to make this clear.

According to the information I found, this song was first performed in 1938 by Japanese singer Watanabe Hamako  (渡辺はま子, 1910-1999) and was used during the Japanese occupation of China as the main theme of 1940 propaganda movie Shina No Yoru.

There is also a cover version performed in 1941 by Japanese singer and actress Yoshiko Ōtaka (山口淑子, also known as Li Xianglan 李香兰 and Shirley Yamaguchi), who actually played the main role in the same film (I told you it’s a bit complicated). According to this post and the comments I read on Youtube, it seems that there is still a controversy concerning the identity of the original performer.

Later on, the song became popular among American GI’s based in Japan and Korea after World War II, and its hard to pronounce title became “She Ain’t Got No Yoyo”. You can easily find anecdotes about it in Korean War veterans forums on the web.

The record was published by Columbia Japan. Lyrics written by Yaso Saijo (西條八十), music composed by Nobuyuki Takeoka (竹岡信幸).

You can read more information about this song and both singers in this post. Read also this article written by Michael K. Bourdaghs from the University of Chicago.

George de Fretes

 George Fretes
 

 

George Fretes (Bandung (Dutch East Indies), December 23, 1921 – Torrance (California), November 19, 1981) was a Dutch (of Malayan origin) steel guitarist, singer and composer.

The Fretes was born from the marriage of military KNIL Anton Balthasar de Fretes Tersemas and Carolina. As a child he played on bottles of water and listened to the radio to hear music as it was Hoopi Sol, a famous Hawaiian guitarist from the 30s and 40s of last century.

In 1936 won the Fretes with the “Hawaiian Little Boys” (with Vic Spangenberg, Hans de Water, Leo Cress and Guus Shrine) with its first prize, an incentive in a Hawaiian Competition in Batavia. For the first prize he did not qualify because the average age of just fourteen years the band was therefore out of competition to be participated. It gave the “Hawaiian Little Boys” is a performance for NIROM, the Dutch East Indies Radio Broadcasting.

Joyce Aubrey gaat zingen bij het ensemble The Royal Hawaiian Minstrels en Suara Istana o.l.v. haar ex- echtgenoot George de Fretes. Hij is als verstekeling aan boord van de Johan van Barneveldt in de zomer van 1958 naar Nederland gekomen. De kleine Wanda wordt bij de optredens betrokken als hula danseres en bespeelster van percussie instrumenten. Later is zij ook als zangeres actief.

When he was sixteen formed the Fretes the Royal Hawaiian Quintet, which also starred brother Arie. With the now famous Fretes composition Royal Hawaiian Hula won a competition in 1937.

In the spring of 1938 he was on another show in Surabaya voted “Champion of the Archipelago” with his band, which has since been renamed The Royal Hawaiian Minstrels. Under this name provides the band 67 years later still shows.

In Dutch East Indies were the Royal Hawaiian Minstrels until the outbreak of World War II the most popular and most expensive pay band. During the war it was forbidden to play Hawaiian music and changed its name to Suara Istana (voice of the palace) and played successfully krontjong Music.

After the war, their success was so great that it resulted in the fact that the group broke down and sometimes in two places at once occurred. The core were the brothers George, John, Peter and Arie, supplemented with cousin Tony, and the solid Bram Titaley singer Aubrey Joyce (then wife of George), supplemented by other musicians.

Early 50’s divorced George Joyce with their daughter Wanda left for the Netherlands. George came in 1958 as a stowaway on the Johan van Oldebarneveldt with him and his fame had traveled ahead in January for the Winter Producer of Phonogram telegraphed ahead to the ship under contract that he would like to have. On September 1, 1958 George joined the Fretes for the first time in Utrecht, Netherlands, on one day records for traders. In the newly formed Royal Hawaiian Minstrels played alongside George also include Bill Thoma, Wim van der Beek and sang Joyce Aubrey. It was so successful that he was a few weeks later, his own radio show at the AVRO and had the Christmas of 1958 was seen with his own TV show. (The Dutch television existed at that time from a transmitter in black / white exceptions). Tickling the strings he had heard such a difficult song he played blindfolded.

His arrival in the Netherlands caused quite a stir since his student Rudi Wairata – previously the Netherlands had come – though his numbers had been stolen and the plate put in his Amboina Serenaders, where the Fretes wife Joyce Aubrey’s hard singer had been . The judge Rudi exposed as impostor and a long time he could not occur in the Netherlands.

George Fretes was a musical genius. He composed dozens of songs, played many instruments include: trumpet, saxophone, guitar, violin, but was a champion on the steel guitar. His musical oeuvre spans less than 65 LPs.

His business, he could hardly settle well and he was by all and sundry in the Dutch music cheated. The interest in Hawaiian music disappeared early 60s but the influence of George was huge on so-called Indo-rock musicians.

In 1966 he made a tour with the Tielman Brothers, who he knew from India, Germany, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Also in that year he made an LP with the German orchestra of Frank Valdor before the Netherlands for good and to turn his back to the United States to leave.

From 1969 to 1981 he lived in Los Angeles where he was on 19 November of that year would die from a heart attack. He was buried next to his idol Sol Hoopi and they have the same bronze plaque on the grave because George had long ago surpassed his idol and they had room for him beside Sol Hoopi made.

The Royal Hawaiian Minstrels after the death of George just moved on. There was a group of that name in the United States with his brother John in the Netherlands with his brother Peter and his son Roy Fretes, each year at the Pasar Malam in The Hague to play. Wanda was the daughter Fretes sixties well known in the Netherlands as a teen singer. They made records in the Netherlands and Germany and also sang regularly at her father’s band, where they participate in Indonesia, Japan and Hawaii occurred.

irama

I thought that, coupled with the previous post of today, I’d post something languid and tranquil, something somewhat relaxed. So, I brought out another classic Indonesian krontjong piece from the mid-20th century, on the local Irama label. “Irama” actually means “rhythm” in English – thus the title of the piece as well as the name of the record label are explained.

I posted a krontjong tune of the same vintage, and on another independent Indonesian label (Dendang), . This one is similar – it’s the style of krontjong that I quite enjoy, featuring the walking guitar and fiddle player trading runs in between smooth vocals. Krontjong itself is a relatively new type of urban folk music, developing in Indonesian urban areas a little over 100 years ago, with Batavian, Portuguese, Malay, and even African influence. Krontjong had changed dramatically since it was first recorded ca. 1904, and when this record was released (probably the late 1940s or so). The instrumentation was bare bones at first, featuring trios and the like. I’ve heard 1920s krontjong that sounds influenced by Stamboel theater, with a slightly more operatic sound, showing further influences at work. By the 1940s, krontjong was a rage, with whole orchestras and popular singers getting into the act…yet, to me this music is not easily explained. Indonesian-Hawaiian-guitar-and-fiddle-ballads?

As for the singer and band – I’m afraid these are muddy waters. I am mostly sure that “Moh.” stands for Mohammed, and “Kr.” stands for krontjong, but at the risk of being incorrect, I will let the original label stand as the official record

FRAME FOUR :

THE INDONESIA KRONCONG HISTORY FROM GOOGLE EXPLORATION FOR COMPERATIVE STUDY:

Keroncong music was born in Indonesia through the course of its long history and full of unique views of its constituent elements consisting of various components of cultural, ethnic, and language. If we draw a red thread about the origins of the birth of music keroncong in Indonesia, we will be faced with the mystery concerning the history of world history. History of Islamic occupation in the southern region of the Iberian peninsula from the fifth century until the thirteenth century. Historical background that explains why the Europeans in the sixteenth century was so determined to mobilize all its military and navigational skills to get the spices from the East. The history of the arrival of the Portuguese and the Dutch in the seventeenth century to fight over hegemony in Southeast Asia through trade monopoly in the Malacca, Sunda Kelapa, and the Moluccan islands. The history of slavery, and the lives of street musicians during the Dutch East Indies. Identity formation history of the nation of Indonesia as an independent nation and has a cultural heritage that is not infinite number of music including keroncong. Fortunately for music that eventually keroncong accepted and become the property of the Indonesian nation, a fact which has gained international recognition.

Today when we talk about keroncong, we are faced with a term that contains a broad sense. Etymologically, keroncong derived from the name of a musical instrument similar small-sized guitar, commonly four strings made of nylon, so it produces sound when played crong, jreng not like the sound of metal strings. Keroncong term believed to derive from the crafters in the village monument waditra who inherited the art of craft skills waditra guitar. Guitar was named as an adaptation of the guitar keroncong cavaquinho brought by Portuguese sailors sailed around the world. When he arrived in the archipelago of Madeira is called braguinha guitar, because it comes from the region of Braga in Portugal. In Brazil people call this machete is used to accompany dances. On the Caribbean island was called Cuatro guitar, because the four stringed. When the Polynesians arrived in the Pacific, the natives call it a ukelele, or fingers that jump, because it learned how to play but not crushed. Interesting to note that the guitar that gained popularity as a Hawaiian ukulele with patents, while the ukulele as keroncong designation has been recognized as a patent Indonesia by Salwa El-Shawan Castelo-Branco in the dictionary of The Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, “Portugal” (2002:197) .

Thus the ukulele can be said to occupy a key position in every game keroncong music, so it must have a color crong orkestrasinya that serves as a rhythmic riffs (repeated patterns). In addition, the ukulele is spread and used in various types of ensemble gives an indication that the color also crong formations wherever it is played the ukulele. We in Indonesia have also agreed that there is no any music that may appear keroncong without bearing the label has a unique color of the game crong ukulele. It is universally believed that there is no keroncong without crong, and through the deployment of ukulele music keroncong not impossible in many different versions can also be found in various corners. Currently crong color can still be found among others in the islands of Halmahera in the ensemble bastidor are generic, in Malacca in the ensemble dondang unfortunately, in the Netherlands in the ensemble toegoenezen, in Hawaii in the Hawaiian guitar ensemble, in Suriname with krontjong ensambelnya, except in Indonesia in the ensemble keroncong orchestra.

If keroncong as waditra has worldwide, then keroncong as a musical ensemble, keroncong as a form of song, and keroncong as guitar playing style is typical of Indonesia, a genre influenced by Javanese gamelan. Keroncong ensemble orchestration typically featuring violin or flute as a carrier flow of melody, the guitar as an accompanist and a carrier flow of counter-melodies, ukulele as a time-beater, and stringed cello (Pizzicato) as a tune-percussion rhythm that sometimes dipertebal with stringed bass.

Like pengendang become the leader of the Javanese gamelan, the cellist with the typical pattern according Kusbini gedugannya became conductor in the orchestra keroncong. Gedugan it has a dual function as a bass and percussion, who led the orchestra keroncong not need it and avoid the use of drum-set in orkestrasinya. From here we can see how strong the dominance waditra displaying character strings in an orchestra keroncong chordophonic in total from its role as a carrier of the melody to rhythm and harmony.

Orchestration keroncong Moresco actually a dance accompaniment consisting of guitar and tambourine percussion pieces of metal as a musical blend of Arab-Caucasian. Tambourine is also used in orchestral musicians keroncong Indies in Batavia in the Dutch East Indies. That’s why another version of the term emerged when the tambourine keroncong keroncong excluded from the orchestra under the influence of Javanese gamelan, so that the color of the metal triangle is no longer heard, and which remains is the color of his guitar keroncong. The color of the metal triangle is returned as a property of the Javanese dancers who wore bracelets on their legs. Currently though tambourine is still heard in Tugu village, orchestra keroncong in Indonesia are no longer using it.

 Keroncong community orchestra Indies in Batavia (Illustration: A.Th. Manusama (1919:12 a))
During the Dutch East Indies, keroncong appeared as ars nova, a new art which is non-traditional and non-classical Western art favored by urban communities. Major cities in Java and then grow into a center keroncong, since achieving popularity through the Night Market in Gambir, Krokodilen communities in Kemajoran, up to concours Jaar Markt in Surabaya. Keroncong when it became part of mass culture that has commercial value, so the ensemble keroncong popping up everywhere. But after independence, there was a musical revolution around the world with the birth of rhythmic rock music popular with young people. Rhythmic rock music quickly spread through the music and recording technology of today that displace the popularity of conventional rhythmic music including keroncong.

A musicologist, music is music with a conventional rhythm accentuation falls on the first beat, like a dance rhythm walsa the count of three, or four-count rhythm in marcia. Instead rock rhythms provide a fresh breath when it moved accentuation of the first beat is marked by the beat of snare-drum stick on the second beat of rhythmic patterns in between the game-bass drum and hi-hat cymbal. The move gave birth to accentuate the character sinkopatik, continuous dependence, giving rise to the psychological sensation of questions unanswered. Not surprisingly, when the rhythm of rock managed to attract the attention of the younger generation, and quickly mastered the universal musical life.

There is no denying that the drum-set occupies a key position in the rhythm of rock. Currently there are no popular music of any kind that does not use a drum-set, ranging from the simple to the band’s symphonic band groups or sophisticated light music orchestra. Rock rhythms through drum-set game has worldwide and became the basis of all kinds of popular music today. Along with the popularity of conventional music and is considered to be marginalized musical representation of the past that have been outdated, the only demand by the elderly only.

In this case his music keroncong faced a dilemma, because on the one hand, if the slump in popularity will continue to maintain a conventional rhythm, while on the other hand the use of drum-set in the orchestration keroncong will kill the music characteristics. Time passes quickly when music keroncong finally moved from the mass culture of commercially valuable music industry entered the cultural traditions that are classified as ethnic music. Types of music such as this are always vulnerable to the threat of extinction, so the concept of preservation and revitalization of the agenda. Fortunate that the social capital of keroncong lies in the support of some communities in Indonesia to ensure that the music has been born for centuries will not become extinct. However, revitalization efforts need to continue to be done for any purpose, including the purpose of reconstruction, go-international goals, or for the benefit of experimental and archiving.

Go-international effort against keroncong music ever undertaken by Rudi Pirngadie through keroncong Stay Fresh orchestra performances that brought the genre Keroncong-beat in the New York World’s Fair in 1964. Keroncong beat is a concept that explores rhythm gedugan keroncong in the form of a cello, rhythmic riffs ukulele, and banyu milli guitar to accompany all types of songs including songs West. No less keroncong singers like M. Rivani, Rita Zahara, and Sayekti managed to attract the attention of American society in the Western rendition of I Left My Heart in San Francisco that dikeroncongkan. Experimentation Keroncong beat did not bring results, among others due to not having a strong cultural roots in Indonesia. Not impossible that the failure was also due to the characteristic rhythm of the exotic, are powerless against the sensational rock rhythms. But after all, innovation Pirngadie has successfully demonstrated the position and value of fresh music keroncong Indonesia in the international arena.

Another go-international efforts can be done through the preparation of packaging for keroncong orchestra as conducted by RRI Jakarta Studio Orchestra led by Isbandi in event Star Radio Television Keroncong type. Similarly, experimentation Singgih Sanjaya through arable Light Keroncong in orchestral format that maintains grip keroncongnya. This effort is more suitable for the preservation of musical tradition keroncong music as a packaged artistically musical. This effort is more academic and respectable in lifting keroncong as a repertoire of Indonesia in international forums, is more than just offering a generic rhythm.

Go-international effort is also meant to promote the international world that is music keroncong Indonesia, through patents or intellectual property rights, followed by numerous publications about keroncong of the researchers. So far researchers like Surya Brata, Paramita Abdurachman, Harmunah, Budiman BJ, and Suka Hardjana has a lot to do, while foreign researchers such as Ernst Heins Bronia Kornhauser and contributed to them. Research Philip Yampolsky producing generic recording keroncong singer of the 1930s a different color with singer keroncong voice today, other than for years Philip has paid great attention to the ethnic music of the archipelago.

Go-international effort also requires us to appreciate the maestro who has managed to develop keroncong music since the days of the Dutch East Indies to be able to look at this as one of the mainstream music of Indonesia, as has been pioneered by the community of Monument in Krontjong Toegoe, Kusbini in Keroncong Original, Gesang in Keroncong Idioms, Idioms Andjar Any in Java, and the singers who have contributed to the life keroncong music from generation to generation. May be expected with the rapid music education in Indonesia, the younger generation of academic musicians will instinctively moved their concerns to participate to maintain the ancestral heritage which has bequeathed our nation.

Thus efforts are a true go-international against keroncong music does not lie solely on the spread and popularity of music keroncong internationally, or at archiving the music in the form of the figure scores, or in the form of orchestra performances kroncong immanent, but rather focused on attitudes that reflect the desire of the creators, musicians, and researchers keroncong Indonesia to behave in a musical.

In the end we are morally obligated to maintain and support the international confidence that keroncong is the music of Indonesia, as well as Portuguese music known as fado, blues to African-American musical identity, from Spanish flamenco, and tango as an Argentine folk songs, national music that is popular with songs that not only sung but also expressed Coração, or from the deepest depths.

Save the Music Kroncong We

Reading several publications bulletin “Tjroeng”, stretching the spirit of community seems keroncong Indonesia (KKI), both fans, musicians, singers, and observer keroncong willing to dig back and preserve the art of music keroncong perceived prominence began to recede. In the KKI may further increase with the increasing number of people in Indonesia, but the percentage may be decreased. Can it be said keroncong music began to recede pamorya?

When compared with the 70 state may have a point. At that event keroncong music activities sponsored by the government or state can be said to be solid. Among them, are not lost from memory is always held regularly every year election race radio stars from the local level (provincial) to the national level. Selection is sponsored (held) by the Ministry of Information, and Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) which is an institution under the auspices of the Ministry of Information has always broadcast the race elections tsb radio star. At that time the contested not only music but also of the type keroncong seriosa and “entertainment”, or more dekenal today as a kind of pop.

Enthusiastic people to follow the holding of a huge radio star. This event proved that disiakan by RRI until late at night is always awaited by the pendenganya. And keroncong music among the public at that time occupied a higher position, more popular when compared with other types of music and entertainment seriosa. Developments in society influence the development of public taste of music available. Naturally formed polarization taste and appreciation of music as well as influence the development of music itself. A shift in tastes, especially among young children (teenagers) are more like the type of entertainment or pop music. Many of the emerging pop music groups like Koes Plus, Favourit Group, D’lloyd, Pambers, Mercys etc.. In addition, slowly but surely, began creeping up the popularity of dangdut music which at that time better known as the musical “Malay”. Even dedengkot dangdut music like Oma Irama at the beginning of his musical career through pop music, and several single song was popular at that time. The situation now, the popularity of both kinds of music is higher (more fans) far left and seriosa kroncong types of music.

Orkes keroncong komunitas Indies di Batavia  (Ilustrasi: A.Th. Manusama (1919:12a))

Not satisfied with the container provided by the government as an arena of competition, the musicians pop music pop stars hold their own elections, both at regional and national level, better known by the voters “Pop Singer”. The more pop music event was held, while the event for music keroncong the less even none at all.

Subsequent developments, with the abolition of the Ministry of Information from the ranks of the cabinet, automatically lost the election race is also a calendar of activities which include the radio star music keroncong therein. Also mean missing the event to socialize and popularize music keroncong among the wider community.

Is this the series of events ultimately lowers the overall prestige of keroncong music fans and becoming obsolete?

Indonesia in the eyes of society as a whole may fall dramatically keroncong music fame if the criterion is the amount of numbers keroncong pengemar or music lovers. But among his own popularity or prestige KKI keroncong music still exist and awake, only the number is likely much less than the pop music fan or dangdut. The addition of the number of fans are also not very significant, perhaps waiting for the changing tastes in line with the addition of age is not keroncong music fans. In fact, keroncong music community still exists, even not only in Indonesia but expanded into other countries brought about by the Indonesian people are migrating to other countries, like Malaysia, Suriname, the Netherlands etc.. In the countries mentioned above, remain consistent keroncong music community enjoys and plays music keroncong.

Enjoying or membeci a type of music or songs, with regard to taste, so it is highly subjective, can not be forced. Walk naturally obey the existing environment and habits. Pop songs sung by Shakira music grop or by a music group in Indonesia Radja very loved among teens or children smell big (ABG), but maybe the songs the group was not recognized at all by the people of Suriname. Society there may be more familiar with the song artist Waljinah “Walang Kekeknya”. In conclusion, globally, which have more prestige or more popular? Keroncong pop music or music? Please readers perceive themselves to answer the other questions mentioned above.

Problems faced by communities in Indonesia and dibelahan keroncong other world is how to maintain sustainable existence keroncong music. This needs attention in light of concerns from some quarters who doubted the durability keroncong music for the “onslaught” other kinds of music, especially pop music. As the news reported by the website antara.co.id, dated October 19, 2008, carried stories about the great hope maestro keroncong Indonesia, “Gesang”, asking people keroncong music fans to help preserve the flow of the original music of this Java (meaning keroncong) to stay alive all time. Behind the hope he implies the concerns that the music began to recede fallen keroncong Indonesia. Gradually, if nothing is done “nguri-uri” keroncong music, it is not likely fans will be left extinct. This situation is a challenge and an opportunity keroncong entire human community to restore luster to the hope keroncong music maestro “Gesang” keroncong can be realized.

How do our efforts to preserve the cultural art of music keroncong?

, There are various types of keroncong, there Keroncong Original, Idioms Keroncong, Stambul Keroncong, coupled with Krontjong Toegoe. Of each type did have a “formula” or “grip” on their own [regarding this formula have appeared in previous bulletins Croeng]. Looking at the formula or pakemnya, keroncong music can be categorized as serious music, equivalent to classical music because there are rules that must be met in order to be called music keroncong. Therein lies the beautiful and “adiluhungnya” keroncong music! So if there are some citizens say that the music keroncong is “tacky” or “old school” Shah-Shah was only because of different perceptions, but it’s a big mistake! Not just anyone and not many who can create and play music “pure” keroncong properly. Only people who have special talents. Therefore, keroncong music that is played without obeying the rules, or that there can be said to deviate as keroncong contemporary or experimental music. Usually of young people who likes to experiment so that the music was born CongDut (keroncong Remix), CongRock (keroncong alloy and rock), CongLan (alloy keroncong and gamelan), etc.. How do we respond to the birth of the type music

original info

Salam, Pak Iwan.

Saya berasal dari Singapura dan sangat kagum dengan koleksi Pak Iwan, terutama sekali tentang sejarah kumpulan seni seperti Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella. Kedua-dua kumpulan ini memang cukup popular di Singapura dan Malaya pada tahun 1930an. Salah satu ahli kumpulan Dardanella telah menetap di Singapura dan menjadi seorang seniwati yang terkenal di sisni sejak tahun 194oan . Beliau adalah Momo Latiff yang berasal dari Batavia dan kini berusia 88 tahun.

Momo Latif telah menjadi salah seorang penari Bali Dancers dalam kumpulan Dardanella. Selepas Dardanella berpecah pada pertengahan tahun 1930an, beliau telah memasuki kumpulan bangsawan yg di ketuai oleh Raden Sudiro. Pada satu persembahan yang di adakan di Melaka, Raden telah memberitahu kepada Momo bahawa Syarikat filem Shaw Brothers di Singapura ingin mengambil Momo sebagai heroine dalam filem yg berjudul Topeng Shaitan di terbitkan pada tahun 1939. Momo kemudian telah merakamkan suara pada tahun 1941 bersama HMV dengan nyanyian lagu2 Bunga Sakura, Pohon Beringin dan Pulau Bali.

Iklan Dardanella.(Dardanella operate label promotion)

Two biggest native Indonesian operates were deveoloped in 1925 and 1926 were Miss Riboet Orion and Dardanella (Dua perkumpulan besar sandiwara berdiri pada 1925 dan 1926, Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella).

Keduanya merajai dunia sandiwara kala itu. Mereka dikenal terutama karena pemain-pemainnya yang piawai berperan di atas panggung, cerita-ceritanya yang realis, dan punya seorang pemimpin kharismatik.

Kedua perkumpulan ini dikenal sebagai pembenih sandiwara modern Indonesia. Mereka merombak beberapa tradisi yang telah lazim pada masa stambul, bangsawan, dan opera, seperti: membuat pembagian episode yang lebih ringkas dari stambul, menghapuskan adegan perkenalan para tokoh sebelum bermain, menghilangkan selingan nyanyian atau tarian di tengah adegan, menghapus kebiasaan memainkan sebuah lakon hanya dalam satu malam pertunjukan, dan objek cerita sudah mulai berupa cerita-cerita asli, bukan dari hikayat-hikayat lama atau cerita-cerita yang diambil dari film-film terkenal (Oemarjati, 1971: 30-31). Rombongan sandiwara ini juga mulai menggunakan naskah untuk diperankan di atas pentas, menggunakan panggung pementasan, serta mulai mengenal peran seseorang yang mirip sutradara (pada masa itu lazim disebut programma meester, peran ini dimainkan oleh pemimpin perkumpulan).

The Orion Operete Inc founder at Batavia(now jakarta) by Tio Tek Djiwn yunior, the primadona is Niss Riboet (later Married wir Mr Tio) and Mr Tio also played the swords,specialized as the robery of the women in the opera of Juanita veza written by Antoinette de Vega, after that this opretee becaem famous ad Miss Riboet Orion(Perkumpulan sandiwara Orion berdiri di Batavia pada 1925. Rombongan sandiwara ini didirikan serta dipimpin oleh Tio Tek Djien Junior. Tio merupakan seorang terpelajar pertama yang menekuni secara serius kesenian sandiwara modern. Dia lulusan sekolah dagang Batavia. Primadona mereka adalah Miss Riboet. Selain sebagai istri Tio, Riboet juga terkenal dengan permainan pedangnya. Ia sangat menonjol ketika memerankan seorang perampok perempuan dalam lakon Juanita de Vega karya Antoinette de Zerna. Selanjutnya perkumpulan ini terkenal dengan nama Miss Riboet Orion (Sumardjo, 2004: 115).

This Operete becaem more famous after came in The Journalist Njoo Cheong Seng and his wife Fifi Young ,during this time tje operate created a  imaginative story, then Nyo became the Tios best man which had the duty the story ,his succes with Saijah, R,soemiati,and Singapore at night(Perkumpulan ini semakin mengibarkan bendera ketenarannya setelah masuk seorang wartawan bernama Njoo Cheong Seng dan istrinya Fifi Young. Setelah masuknya Njoo Cheong Seng dan Fifi Young, perkumpulan ini meninggalkan cerita-cerita khayalan yang pada masa stambul dan bangsawan lazim untuk dibawakan ke panggung (Pane, 1953: 9). Kemudian Njoo Cheong Seng menjadi tangan kanan Tio Tek Djien dan bertugas sebagai penulis lakon pada perkumpulan ini dan menghasilkan cerita-cerita, seperti Saidjah, R.A. Soemiatie, Barisan Tengkorak, dan Singapore After Midnight.)

Pertunjukan Dardanella

Di tengah kepopuleran Miss Riboet Orion, berdiri perkumpulan sandiwara Dardanella di Sidoarjo pada 21 Juni 1926. Sebagaimana Miss Riboet Orion, Dardanella juga telah melakukan perubahan besar pada dunia sandiwara.

Dardanella founded by A.Piedro ,the russian man with name Willy Kilimanof. In 1929 starting show at Batavia based on the storyfrom best film like Robinhood,the amsk of Zorro,three musketters, the Black pirates, the Thieve of Baghdad,Sheik of Arabia,the graaf of Monte Cristo,vero, and the rose pf Yesterday. But at the second show Dardanella shown the Indonesia native story like Annie van Mendoet,Lily van tjikampek,the Rose of Tjikemabng based on the Indonesian Stories (Dardanella didirikan oleh A. Piedro, seorang Rusia yang bernama asli Willy Klimanoff (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 5cool. Pada 1929, untuk pertamakalinya Dardanella mengadakan pertunjukan di Batavia. Mulanya lakon-lakon yang dimainkan adalah cerita-cerita berdasarkan film-film yang sedang ramai dibicarakan orang, seperti Robin Hood, The Mask of Zorro, The Three Musketeers, The Black Pirates, The Thief of Baghdad, Roses of Yesterday, The Sheik of Arabia, Vera, dan Graaf de Monte Christo (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 74). Namun pada kunjungan keduanya di Batavia, mereka menghadirkan cerita mengenai kehidupan di Indonesia, seperti Annie van Mendoet, Lilie van Tjikampek, dan De Roos van Tjikembang. Cerita-cerita ini disebut dengan Indische Roman, yaitu cerita-cerita yang mengambil inspirasinya dari kehidupan Indonesia, dikarang dalam bahasa Belanda (Brahim, 1968: 116).

At the same time ,a journalis Andjar asmara also join the Dardanella and he bacame the Bes man of Peidro lika njo , he writthe the story Dr Samsi, Haida,Tjang,perantaian 88 dan Si bongkok like the huncthman of Notredam, Dardanella had the big five actors, Tan Tjeng Bok,Miss Dja, Mis Riboet II, Ferry Kock and Astaman (Pada tahun yang sama, seorang wartawan dari majalah Doenia Film, bernama Andjar Asmara, ikut masuk ke dalam perkumpulan ini, dan meninggalkan pekerjaannya sebagai wartawan di majalah tersebut. Seperti halnya Njoo Cheong Seng di Miss Riboet Orion, Andjar kemudian juga menjadi tangan kanan Piedro, dan bertugas sebagai penulis naskah perkumpulan. Andjar Asmara menulis beberapa naskah, seperti Dr. Samsi, Si Bongkok, Haida, Tjang, dan Perantaian 99 (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 12). Dardanella juga terkenal dengan pemain-pemainnya yang piawai memegang peranan dalam setiap pertunjukan. Para pemain ini terkenal dengan sebutan The Big Five. Anggota Perkumpulan Dardanella yang disebut The Big Five yaitu, Ferry Kock, Miss Dja, Tan Tjeng Bok, Riboet II, dan Astaman (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 11-12).

The rivalrity between Miss Riboet Oreon and dardanella at Bavaia begun in 1931, starting about the name of Miss Riboet which Mr Tio sue to the court and win,   dardanela must used the name Miss riboet II  (Persaingan untuk meraih perhatian publik antara Miss Riboet Orion dengan Dardanella terjadi di Batavia pada tahun 1931. Sebenarnya persaingan Miss Riboet Orion dengan Dardanella sudah mulai terlihat ketika dua perkumpulan ini memperebutkan “pengakuan nama” dari salah satu pemainnya, yaitu Riboet. Dalam dua perkumpulan ini ada satu pemain yang namanya sama. Ketika itu Dardanella yang sedang bermain di Surabaya, didatangi dan dituntut oleh Tio Tek Djien, pemimpin Miss Riboet Orion, karena Dardanella mempergunakan nama Riboet juga untuk seorang pemainnya. Tio berkata kepada Piedro, “Kami tidak senang Tuan mempergunakan nama yang sama, nama Riboet juga untuk pemain Tuan…kami menyampaikan gugatan, Miss Riboet hanya ada satu dan dia sekarang sedang bermain di Batavia”. Akhir dari perseteruan ini adalah mengalahnya Piedro kepada Tio dan merubah nama Riboet yang ada di Dardanella menjadi Riboet II (Ramadhan KH, 1982: 72).

Memang lazim terjadi persaingan antarperkumpulan sandiwara, terutama di kota besar seperti Batavia. Sebelum persaingan dengan Dardanella, Miss Riboet Orion juga pernah bersaingan dengan Dahlia Opera, pimpinan Tengkoe Katan dari Medan, persaingan ini berakhir dengan kemenangan pihak Orion (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 11). Wujud dari persaingan antara Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella ini adalah pecahnya perang reklame. Dardanella memajukan Dr. Samsi sebagai lakon andalan mereka, sedangkan Miss Riboet Orion dengan Gagak Solo. Dalam persaingan ini, Dardanella mengandalkan A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, dan Tan Tjeng Bok, sedangkan Miss Riboet Orion mengandalkan Tio Tek Djien, Njoo Cheong Seng, dan A. Boellaard van Tuijl, sebagai pemimpinnya (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 12). Kedua wartawan dalam perkumpulan-perkumpulan itu bekerja dan memutar otak untuk membuat reklame propaganda yang, sedapat-dapatnya, memengaruhi pikiran publik.

At least Miss Riboet Orion off in 1934 and gave the authority to Dardanella , and their writer Njoo Cheong Seng and fifi Young moved to dardanella(Akhirnya Miss Riboet Orion harus menyerah kepada Dardanella. Riwayat Perkumpulan Sandiwara Miss Riboet Orion berakhir pada 1934, ketika penulis naskah mereka Njoo Cheong Seng dan Fifi Young, pindah ke Dardanella.)

Then dardanella became famous with the new actors like Ratna asmara, Bachtiar Effendy,Fify young and an american from guam Henry L Duarte (Dardanella menjadi semakin besar dengan hadirnya anggota-anggota baru seperti Ratna Asmara, Bachtiar Effendi, Fifi Young, dan Henry L. Duarte (seorang Amerika yang dilahirkan di Guam). Dalam Dardanella juga berkumpul tiga penulis lakon ternama, seperti A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, dan Njoo Cheong Seng, di samping itu, perkumpulan ini diperkuat oleh permainan luar biasa dari bintang-bintang panggungnya seperti Miss Dja, Ferry Kock, Tan Tjeng Bok, Astaman, dan Riboet II.)

In 1935, Dardanella madse the tour to Siam,Burma. Ceylon,India,tibet ,the tour was called The Orient’s Tour with native dancer like wayang golek, Pencak Minangkabau,wayang golek,bali jagger, papua dancer and Ambon song (Pada 1935, Piedro memutuskan untuk mengadakan perjalanan ke Siam, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, dan Tibet, untuk memperkenalkan pertunjukan-pertunjukan mereka. Perjalanan ini disebut Tour d’Orient. Dalam perjalanan itu tidak dipentaskan sandiwara, melainkan tari-tarian Indonesia seperti Serimpi, Bedoyo, Golek, Jangger, Durga, Penca Minangkabau, Keroncong, Penca Sunda, Nyanyian Ambon, dan tari-tarian Papua (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 13).

Tour de Orient qwere the last tour of Dardanella before the world war two, then dismish(Tour d’Orient adalah perjalanan terakhir Dardanella. Setelah perjalanan itu Dardanella pecah. Dan kisah dua raksasa sandiwara ini pun berakhir…)

I have the tax fee of Padang city gouverment about the dardanella and Dwi Dja tours, during japanese occupation 1943-1844, I think the Japanesi Millitary occupation gouverment, used this show for political campaign(Dr iwan S)

MISS RIBOET (INDONESIA)

Miss Riboet was the first huge star of recording in Indonesia and the Malay peninsula.  She was the lead actress of the Orion theatrical company, a tooneel troupe which was founded in 1925 in Batavia (Jakarta). In fact, she was so popular that by the time recording engineer Max Birkhahan made this recording in 1926 she already had her own series of “Miss Riboet Records.”

The label declares this a “Stamboel” recording, a western influenced genre of song that evolved out of the Indonesian theater known as ”komedie stamboel.”
Komedie stamboel was a form of musical theater that started in the city of Surabaya in 1891 and quickly became a craze throughout Indonesia. At first, it featured plays of arabesque fantasy (Stamboel = Istanbul), mainly tales from the Arabian Nights, with Ali Baba being a favorite standard. The plays were sung and included musical numbers as in a western musical, using mostly western instruments. They were also influenced by Parsi theater. There is an excellent book by Matthew Isaac Cohen that gives an extremely detailed account of the origin of Komedie Stamboel.

But by the mid-20s, when Miss Riboet began recording, komedie stamboel had already given way to the Malay theatrical form called bangsawan, and eventually tooneel, a more realistic form.
Apparently komedie stamboel had developed a somewhat unsavory reputation that led in part to it’s demise, some troupe leaders were accused of doubling as pimps for the actresses!
The music was often labeled as “Stamboel” on record, regardless of whether it was a stamboel, fox trot, tango, krontjong or traditional piece, such as this Javanese poetical form called Pangkoer Pelaoet .

Two major theatrical association founded in 1925 and 1926, Miss Riboet Orion and the Dardanelles. Both dominated the theatrical world at that time. They are known primarily for the players who expertly plays on stage, his stories are realist, and have a charismatic leader.

Both clubs are known as pembenih revue Indonesia. They break down some of the traditions that have been prevalent in the opera, nobility, and operas, such as: making a more compact distribution of episodes of the opera, to abolish the introduction scene of the characters before the play, eliminating the distraction singing or dancing in the middle of the scene, removing a habit to play a play only in a single night performances, and objects of the story has begun to form the original stories, instead of the old saga-saga or stories taken from famous movies (Oemarjati, 1971: 30-31). Theatrical troupe has also started using a script to starring on stage, using the stage performances, as well as getting to know someone who is similar to the role of director (at that time commonly called Programma Meester, this role is played by the leaders of associations).

Orion standing repertory in Batavia in 1925. Theatrical troupe was founded and is led by Tio Tek Djien Junior. Tio is the first scholar to pursue a serious art revue. He graduated from trade school in Batavia. They are the belle of Miss Riboet. Aside from being a wife of Tio, Riboet also famous for its game sword. He was very prominent when playing a female burglar in the play Juanita de Vega’s Antoinette de Zerna. Furthermore, this association known by the name of Miss Riboet Orion (Sumardjo, 2004: 115).

Society is increasingly raising the flag of his fame after entering a journalist named Njoo Cheong Seng and his wife Fifi Young. After the entry of Njoo Cheong Seng and Fifi Young, the association left the fantasy stories are at the opera and nobles brought to the stage common to (Pane, 1953: 9). Then Njoo Cheong Seng became Tio Tek Djien right hand and served as a scriptwriter on this association and produce stories, such as Saidjah, RA Soemiatie, Rows of skulls, and the Singapore After Midnight.

Amid the popularity of Miss Riboet Orion, standing repertory Dardanelles in Sidoarjo on June 21, 1926. As Miss Riboet Orion, the Dardanelles has also made major changes in the theatrical world. Dardanelles was founded by A. Piedro, a Russian whose real name is Willy Klimanoff (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 58). In 1929, for the first time performing in Batavia Dardanelles. At first play-act plays are stories based on movies that are busy talking people, like Robin Hood, The Mask of Zorro, The Three Musketeers, The Black Pirates, The Thief of Baghdad, Roses of Yesterday, The Sheik of Arabia , Vera, and Graaf de Monte Christo (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 74). But on his second visit in Batavia, they present a story about life in Indonesia, such as Annie van Mendoet, Lilie Tjikampek van, and De Roos van Tjikembang. These stories are called Indische Roman, namely the stories that take inspiration from the life of Indonesia, was composed in Dutch (Brahim, 1968: 116).

That same year, a journalist from the magazine Film Doenia, named Andjar Asmara, go in this society, and left his job as a journalist in the magazine. Like Miss Njoo Cheong Seng Riboet Orion, Andjar then also become Piedro right hand, and served as a script writer associations. Andjar Asmara write some scripts, such as Dr. Samsi, The Hunchback, Haida, Tjang, and Perantaian 99 (You in Sin Tzu Po, 1939: 12). Dardanelles is also famous for the players who expertly plays a role in each show. These players are known as the Big Five. Association members Dardanelles called The Big Five namely, Ferry Kock, Miss Dja, Tan Tjeng Bok, Riboet II, and Astaman (You in Sin Tzu Po, 1939: 11-12).

Competition to gain public attention between Miss Riboet Orion with the Dardanelles occurred in Batavia in 1931. Actual competition with the Dardanelles Miss Riboet Orion is starting to look when the two clubs are fighting over “name recognition” of one of his players, namely Riboet. In this group there are two players whose name is the same one. When the Dardanelles that was playing in Surabaya, approached and demanded by Tio Tek Djien, leader of the Miss Riboet Orion, because of the Dardanelles Riboet also use the name for a player. Tio said to Piedro, “We’re not happy sir use the same name, a name also for the players Riboet sir … we deliver the lawsuit, Miss Riboet there’s only one and he is now being played at Batavia”. The end of this feud is mengalahnya Piedro to Tio and Riboet rename that is in the Dardanelles into Riboet II (Ramadhan KH, 1982: 72).

It is not uncommon antarperkumpulan theatrical competition, especially in big cities such as Batavia. Before the competition with the Dardanelles, Miss Riboet Orion has also been competing with Dahlia Opera, led Tengkoe Katan from Medan, the competition ended with the victory of the Orion (You in Sin Tzu Po, 1939: 11). Existence of competition between Miss Riboet Orion and the Dardanelles is the outbreak of war billboard. Dr. Dardanelles advance. Samsi as their flagship play, while Miss Riboet Orion with Crow Solo. In this competition, relying Dardanelles A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, and Tan Tjeng Bok, while Miss Riboet Orion rely Tio Tek Djien, Njoo Seng Cheong, and A. Boellaard van Tuijl, as its leader (You in Sin Tzu Po, 1939: 12). The two journalists in associations that work and rack my brain to make propaganda billboards that, wherever possible, influence the public mind.

Finally Miss Riboet Orion should be surrendered to the Dardanelles. Theatre Historical Society Miss Riboet Orion ended in 1934, when the script writers they Njoo Cheong Seng and Fifi Young, moved into the Dardanelles.

Dardanelles became greater with the presence of new members like Ratna Asmara, Bachtiar Effendi, Fifi Young, and Henry L. Duarte (an American who was born in Guam). In the Dardanelles also assembled three renowned scriptwriter, such as A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, and Njoo Seng Cheong, in addition, the association is reinforced by the outstanding play of the stars of the stage as Miss Dja, Ferry Kock, Tan Tjeng Bok, Astaman, and Riboet II.

In 1935, Piedro decided to journey to Siam, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, and Tibet, to introduce their performances. This trip is called the Tour d’Orient. In the course of the play was not staged, but dances like Serimpi Indonesia, Bedoyo, Golek, Jangger, Durga, Disabled Minangkabau, Keroncong, Disabled Sunda, Ambon song, and dance of Papua (You in Sin Tzu Po, 1939: 13) .

Tour d’Orient is the last trip Dardanelles. After the trip was broken Dardanelles. And the story of two giants of this farce came to an end …

b) Miss Riboet theater’s Oreon (1925)

c) It is easy to guess the excitement Caused by the upcoming event in the island.And yet, life went on as usual: Miss Riboet – a popular actress and singer backthen – performing on stage garnering applause and favorable reviews in the island’s journals, cigarette advertisements and beauty cream, the automobile andthe new man – The Sportsman – coaxed out of the tennis and golf worlds by TheWorld of fashion … putting Singapore on the movie map with his filmBring’em Back Alive. Not to mention Wheeler and Woolsey, a pair of British comedians, who, in Their Day, were the resource persons more popular than Laurel and Hardy. Much excitement was Caused whenthe much-loved Charlie Chaplin and his brother arrived in Singapore in 1932 on Their Way to the Dutch Indies. Certainly, the Hollywood connection is created the image of ‘Cesspool of the East’ for Singapore. Singapore was the object of Fascination for movie-makers, writers, travelers, the real Kings and Queens or theones populating the screens of the newest art.c) on 25 November 1950 Indonesia with a group of stars including Fifi Young (film performer Zoebaida) and Miss Riboet Rawit. comes in singapore.

kelompok Sandiwara Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella 1925 hingga Fasisme di Panggung Sandiwara jaman JEPANG 1942TEATER MODERN JATIM, PANGGUNG SANDIWARA HINGGA KE SANDIWARA DARDANELLA 
 

Sandiwara panggung tidak bisa lepas dari sejarh film di Hindia, selain wayang, Sandiwara panggung sangat di gemari disini. Bebarapa panggung tradisional hingga adaptasi dari eropha, India, China sampai ke hal Wayang. Tetapi kalangan Belanda lebih suka sandiwara panggung dari pada wayang. Memang sejarah wayang diciptakan untuk propaganda seorang raja seperti yang dikisahkan oleh cerita wayang, sehingga rakyat yakin raja mereka seperti tokoh wayang tersebut titisan dewa dan sangat memiliki kekuatan yang luar biasa.

Oranbg Belanda banyak yang main dalam sandiwara ini, termasuk juga kelompok sandiwara bangsa China yang lama di Hindia. Bebarapa sandiwara yang terkenal adalah Opera Srie Permata, komedi Stamboel, Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella.

Sandiwara panggung ini ceritanya beragam, mulai dari kisah HIndia dan orang Belanda totok, atau pun Indo, dan yang populer saat itu dari luar negeri. Sandiwara ini kerapkali diiringi oleh musik-musik, nyanyian dan tarian yang khas, terutama musik keroncong, sunda, melayu, hingga india dan Eropha. Yang nantinya mereka akan terjun dalam Film dan beberapa menjadi pembuat film/bisnis film.

Telah satu abad lebih masyarakat Jatim telah mengenal teater modern. Akan tetapi, masyarakat Jatim juga para kreator teater-nya gagal mempertahankan tradisi teater modern yang telah dibangun sejak tahun 1891 oleh August Maheiu dengan nama Komedi Stamboel dan kemudian dilanjutkan dengan Dardanella pada tahun 1926.
Dardanella semula bernama The Malay Opera yang diprakarsai oleh Willy Klimanoff, anak pemain sirkus terkemuka A. Klimanoff kelahiran Rusia. Willy Klimanoff hijrah ke Indonesia sepeninggalan ayahnya. Dengan penguasaan teknik akrobatik Willy Klimanoff mendapat pekerjaan di Komedi Stamboel, kemudian mengganti namanya dengan A. Pedro.
Dalam bentuk pertunjukan atau infra strukturnya, A. Pedro banyak melakukan perombakan secara revolusioner sebagaimana sistem pertunjukan yang telah terkonsep oleh Komedi Stamboel dalam tradisi lakon dan tonilnya. Pedro melakukan perombakan radikal tradisi komedi bangsawan pendahulunya. Jika dalam Komedi Stamboel diantara pergantian adegan diisi atau diselingi dengan tarian-tarian dan lelucon untuk kepentingan hiburan, maka A. Pedro menghilangkan nuansa-nuansa lelucon dan tarian. Dardanella lebih menfokuskan pada bentuk pertunjukan drama murni. Dardanella mementingkan esensi dramatik, kekuatan cerita dan permainan aktor-aktornya, meskipun selingan tarian tetap ada namun masih berada dalam satu keutuhan pementasan, dengan lain kata, tari-tarian menjadi bagian dari alur cerita dan adegan.
Pengaruh Dardanella terhadap perkembangan teater modern Indonesia sangat besar. Seiring dengan kemajuan dardanella banyak bermunculan teater-teater lain yang diprakarsai oleh bekas sri panggung dan anggota dardanella sendiri. Seperti Bolero, Orion yang didirikan Miss ribort, dan Tjahaya Timoer yang didirikan Andjar Asmara. Andjar Asmara sewaktu menjadi anggota Dardanella menjabat sebagai tangan kanan A. Pedro. Andjar Asmara juga melakukan perombakan dalam sistem managerial dan sistem modernisasi dalam teknik tata panggung. Bahkan dampak dari kemajuan Dardanella sampai ke Jakarta, dengan didirikannya “teater Maya” yang diketuai oleh Usmar Ismail pada tanggal 27 Mei 1944.

Munculnya teater-teater kecil tersebut sebagai antitesis dari keberhasilan Dardanella dan juga sebagai proses eksperimental terhadap tema dan bentuk pementasan yang konvensional.

TUNTUTAN SEJARAH

 
Komedi Stamboel dan Dardanella yang lahir di Jawa Timur yakni Surabaya dan Sidoarjo merupakan pelopor gerakan pementasan teater modern di Indonesia, bahkan secara tidak langsung memberikan dampak yang begitu besar terhadap teater di tanahair nantinya.Semangat modernitas yang dibangun oleh Dardanella terlihat dalam setiap pertunjukannnya telah memakai scrip atau naskah, pengadaan properti, kostum, make-up, juga melakukan pementasan yang utuh, artinya, teater Dardanella menghilangkan konvensi-konvensi lelucon dan tarian-tarian yang memberikan kesenangan lebih pada penonton. Dardanella melalui A. Pedro dan Andjar Asmara telah melakukan sistem manajerial pertunjukan secara profesional yang merupakan supra struktural dari suartu pertunjukan. Hal ini yang merupakan ciri dari teater modern dengan semangat realisme.Realisme yang dimaksud ialah melihat peristiwa sehari-hari yang dialami setiap saat (ilusi kenyataan), sebuah pementasan bukan bukanlah sekedar menyajikan cerita, tetapi ada pesonanya, yakni yang seakan-akan bersungguh-sungguh, suatu permainan yang menimbulkan rangsangan pikiran bahwa yang terjadi di panggung bisa pula terjadi pada penonton. Konsepsi estetika realisme yakni semangat impresionis. Tidak tidak menggubris lagi pesan-pesan sejarah, kitab suci, tetapi langsung memberikan kesan tentang persoalan-persoalan pokok-nya. Konsepsi realisme ingin menohok konsepsi romantisisme yang cenderung menjadikan kehidupan seperti mimpi. Dalam hal ini peentasan Dardanella tidak lagi menampilkan epos-ramayana yang merupakan model pementasan tradisional, akan tetapi Dardanella lebih banyak memainkan naskah-naskah yang sedang terjadi pada masyarakat sekitar. Misalnya dengan mementaskan naskah Nyai Dasima dan Kalibrantasi.Dardanella dengan demikian sadar akan posisi dan konteks sosial dalam masyarakatnya, Dardanella mengapresiasi material dan mengekspresikan kultur lokal dengan perspektif modern.Sedangkan pada dekade dewasa ini, kreator dan pekerja seni teater Jatim telah gagal mewarisi dan mempertahankan tradisi teater modern yang telah dibangun Komedi Stamboel dan Dardanella. Kegagalan pekerja teater Jatim lebih pada sikap kritis, mentalitas, spirit dan intelektualitas. Artinya, pekerja teater Jatim bersifat sebagai pekerja bukannya seseorang atau kelompok yang memiliki daya pikir kritis terhadap fenomena kultural, kepekaan terhadap konteks sosial dibelakang teks realitas.

Dalam beberapa pertunjukan terakhir teater-teater Jatim di Surabaya, pekerja teater Jatim mengesampingkan problematik perspektif kritis massa. Pertunjukan teater Jatim hanya bersifat momentum, temporal dan gegabah mencermati fenomena sosialnya. Dalam hal ini, pekerja teater Jatim khusunya Surabaya tidak mempertimbangkan kebutuhan-kebutuhan mental masyarakatnya. Sebagaimana kita ketahui bahwa Surabaya merupakan kota ‘metropolis’ dimana kriminalitas, kekerasan, urban, ketimpangan sosial, tata kota, pendidikan, perdagangan dsb, adalah suatu problematik yang sering kali dijumpai. Dengan lain kata, pertunjukan-pertunjukan yang ditampilkan pekerja teater Jatim kurang kritis mengklarifikasi problematik. Eksperimentasi dan eksplorasi yang dilakukan para pekerja teater Jatim lebih pada bentuk belaka, tidak menyentuh esensi dan fenomena masyarakatnya atau dengan lain kata minimnya proses kontenplatif, bukannya bermewah-mewah dengan bentuk pertunjukan, baik secara infra stuktural maupun supra strukturalnya, namun minim ide dan gagasan serta gagal menyampaikan dan mengkomunikasikan kegelisahan kultural Jatimnya.

Fenomena yang tak kalah memalukan pekerja teater Jatim ialah, para kritikus teater Indonesia, seperti Jim Lim, Zaini KM, Umar Kayam, Putu Wijaya, Nano Riantiarno, Rendra, Afrizal Malna, Bagdi Sumanto, Hanindawan, Nursahid, Sapardi Djoko Damono, Gunawan moehammad dll dalam beberapa tulisan, pembabagan, referensi-referensi dan data tentang teater modern Indonesia, Surabaya dan Jatim pada umumnya tidak pernah dicatat keberadaannya. Entah karena secara kualitas teater Jatim tidas layak, atau memang di Jatim tidak ada kritikus teater yang berkualitas sehingga dapat mengangkat nama teater Jatim. Secara logika sederhana, seharusnya teater modern Indonesia maju dan terus berkembang di Jatim, dimana pewarisan tradisi teater modern pertama kali diletakkan, bukannya di Solo, Bandung, Yogyakarta dan Jakarta.
Mari kita pikirkan bersama-sama.

Sepenggal Kisah Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella

 

 

Dua perkumpulan besar sandiwara berdiri pada 1925 dan 1926, Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella. Keduanya merajai dunia sandiwara kala itu. Mereka dikenal terutama karena pemain-pemainnya yang piawai berperan di atas panggung, cerita-ceritanya yang realis, dan punya seorang pemimpin kharismatik.
 

Kedua perkumpulan ini dikenal sebagai pembenih sandiwara modern Indonesia. Mereka merombak beberapa tradisi yang telah lazim pada masa stambul, bangsawan, dan opera, seperti: membuat pembagian episode yang lebih ringkas dari stambul, menghapuskan adegan perkenalan para tokoh sebelum bermain, menghilangkan selingan nyanyian atau tarian di tengah adegan, menghapus kebiasaan memainkan sebuah lakon hanya dalam satu malam pertunjukan, dan objek cerita sudah mulai berupa cerita-cerita asli, bukan dari hikayat-hikayat lama atau cerita-cerita yang diambil dari film-film terkenal (Oemarjati, 1971: 30-31). Rombongan sandiwara ini juga mulai menggunakan naskah untuk diperankan di atas pentas, menggunakan panggung pementasan, serta mulai mengenal peran seseorang yang mirip sutradara (pada masa itu lazim disebut programma meester, peran ini dimainkan oleh pemimpin perkumpulan).

 

Perkumpulan sandiwara Orion berdiri di Batavia pada 1925. Rombongan sandiwara ini didirikan serta dipimpin oleh Tio Tek Djien Junior. Tio merupakan seorang terpelajar pertama yang menekuni secara serius kesenian sandiwara modern. Dia lulusan sekolah dagang Batavia. Primadona mereka adalah Miss Riboet. Selain sebagai istri Tio, Riboet juga terkenal dengan permainan pedangnya. Ia sangat menonjol ketika memerankan seorang perampok perempuan dalam lakon Juanita de Vega karya Antoinette de Zerna. Selanjutnya perkumpulan ini terkenal dengan nama Miss Riboet Orion (Sumardjo, 2004: 115).

 

Perkumpulan ini semakin mengibarkan bendera ketenarannya setelah masuk seorang wartawan bernama Njoo Cheong Seng dan istrinya Fifi Young. Setelah masuknya Njoo Cheong Seng dan Fifi Young, perkumpulan ini meninggalkan cerita-cerita khayalan yang pada masa stambul dan bangsawan lazim untuk dibawakan ke panggung (Pane, 1953: 9). Kemudian Njoo Cheong Seng menjadi tangan kanan Tio Tek Djien dan bertugas sebagai penulis lakon pada perkumpulan ini dan menghasilkan cerita-cerita, seperti Saidjah, R.A. Soemiatie, Barisan Tengkorak, dan Singapore After Midnight.

 

Di tengah kepopuleran Miss Riboet Orion, berdiri perkumpulan sandiwara Dardanella di Sidoarjo pada 21 Juni 1926. Sebagaimana Miss Riboet Orion, Dardanella juga telah melakukan perubahan besar pada dunia sandiwara. Dardanella didirikan oleh A. Piedro, seorang Rusia yang bernama asli Willy Klimanoff (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 58). Pada 1929, untuk pertamakalinya Dardanella mengadakan pertunjukan di Batavia. Mulanya lakon-lakon yang dimainkan adalah cerita-cerita berdasarkan film-film yang sedang ramai dibicarakan orang, seperti Robin Hood, The Mask of Zorro, The Three Musketeers, The Black Pirates, The Thief of Baghdad, Roses of Yesterday, The Sheik of Arabia, Vera, dan Graaf de Monte Christo (Ramadhan KH, 1984: 74). Namun pada kunjungan keduanya di Batavia, mereka menghadirkan cerita mengenai kehidupan di Indonesia, seperti Annie van Mendoet, Lilie van Tjikampek, dan De Roos van Tjikembang. Cerita-cerita ini disebut dengan Indische Roman, yaitu cerita-cerita yang mengambil inspirasinya dari kehidupan Indonesia, dikarang dalam bahasa Belanda (Brahim, 1968: 116).

 

Pada tahun yang sama, seorang wartawan dari majalah Doenia Film, bernama Andjar Asmara, ikut masuk ke dalam perkumpulan ini, dan meninggalkan pekerjaannya sebagai wartawan di majalah tersebut. Seperti halnya Njoo Cheong Seng di Miss Riboet Orion, Andjar kemudian juga menjadi tangan kanan Piedro, dan bertugas sebagai penulis naskah perkumpulan. Andjar Asmara menulis beberapa naskah, seperti Dr. Samsi, Si Bongkok, Haida, Tjang, dan Perantaian 99 (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 12). Dardanella juga terkenal dengan pemain-pemainnya yang piawai memegang peranan dalam setiap pertunjukan. Para pemain ini terkenal dengan sebutan The Big Five. Anggota Perkumpulan Dardanella yang disebut The Big Five yaitu, Ferry Kock, Miss Dja, Tan Tjeng Bok, Riboet II, dan Astaman (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 11-12).

 

Persaingan untuk meraih perhatian publik antara Miss Riboet Orion dengan Dardanella terjadi di Batavia pada tahun 1931. Sebenarnya persaingan Miss Riboet Orion dengan Dardanella sudah mulai terlihat ketika dua perkumpulan ini memperebutkan “pengakuan nama” dari salah satu pemainnya, yaitu Riboet. Dalam dua perkumpulan ini ada satu pemain yang namanya sama. Ketika itu Dardanella yang sedang bermain di Surabaya, didatangi dan dituntut oleh Tio Tek Djien, pemimpin Miss Riboet Orion, karena Dardanella mempergunakan nama Riboet juga untuk seorang pemainnya. Tio berkata kepada Piedro, “Kami tidak senang Tuan mempergunakan nama yang sama, nama Riboet juga untuk pemain Tuan…kami menyampaikan gugatan, Miss Riboet hanya ada satu dan dia sekarang sedang bermain di Batavia”. Akhir dari perseteruan ini adalah mengalahnya Piedro kepada Tio dan merubah nama Riboet yang ada di Dardanella menjadi Riboet II (Ramadhan KH, 1982: 72).

 

Memang lazim terjadi persaingan antarperkumpulan sandiwara, terutama di kota besar seperti Batavia. Sebelum persaingan dengan Dardanella, Miss Riboet Orion juga pernah bersaingan dengan Dahlia Opera, pimpinan Tengkoe Katan dari Medan, persaingan ini berakhir dengan kemenangan pihak Orion (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 11). Wujud dari persaingan antara Miss Riboet Orion dan Dardanella ini adalah pecahnya perang reklame. Dardanella memajukan Dr. Samsi sebagai lakon andalan mereka, sedangkan Miss Riboet Orion dengan Gagak Solo. Dalam persaingan ini, Dardanella mengandalkan A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, dan Tan Tjeng Bok, sedangkan Miss Riboet Orion mengandalkan Tio Tek Djien, Njoo Cheong Seng, dan A. Boellaard van Tuijl, sebagai pemimpinnya (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 12). Kedua wartawan dalam perkumpulan-perkumpulan itu bekerja dan memutar otak untuk membuat reklame propaganda yang, sedapat-dapatnya, memengaruhi pikiran publik.

 

Akhirnya Miss Riboet Orion harus menyerah kepada Dardanella. Riwayat Perkumpulan Sandiwara Miss Riboet Orion berakhir pada 1934, ketika penulis naskah mereka Njoo Cheong Seng dan Fifi Young, pindah ke Dardanella.

 

Dardanella menjadi semakin besar dengan hadirnya anggota-anggota baru seperti Ratna Asmara, Bachtiar Effendi, Fifi Young, dan Henry L. Duarte (seorang Amerika yang dilahirkan di Guam). Dalam Dardanella juga berkumpul tiga penulis lakon ternama, seperti A. Piedro, Andjar Asmara, dan Njoo Cheong Seng, di samping itu, perkumpulan ini diperkuat oleh permainan luar biasa dari bintang-bintang panggungnya seperti Miss Dja, Ferry Kock, Tan Tjeng Bok, Astaman, dan Riboet II.

 

Pada 1935, Piedro memutuskan untuk mengadakan perjalanan ke Siam, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, dan Tibet, untuk memperkenalkan pertunjukan-pertunjukan mereka. Perjalanan ini disebut Tour d’Orient. Dalam perjalanan itu tidak dipentaskan sandiwara, melainkan tari-tarian Indonesia seperti Serimpi, Bedoyo, Golek, Jangger, Durga, Penca Minangkabau, Keroncong, Penca Sunda, Nyanyian Ambon, dan tari-tarian Papua (Tzu You dalam Sin Po, 1939: 13).

Salmah Ismail
 

Puan Sri Datin Amar Salmah binti Ismail,AMN or better known as Saloma (22 January 1935 – 25 April 1983) was a Malaysian film actress and singer. She was the third wife of the film actor, director, singer, and songwriter Tan Sri P. Ramlee.

Biography

Salmah was born on 22 January 1935 at Pasir Panjang, Singapore. Coming from a family with artistic leanings (both her sisters Mimi Loma and Mariani were famous actresses on their own right), she displayed histrionic talents of her own as a singer at weddings and family events at 13. As she became more well-known in Singapore she joined the Panca Sitara Group, a band of musicians under the leadership of P. Ramlee. Around this time she also sang with the Kalung Senandung Group at Radio Singapura and entertained acting offers in musical films of the era, usually playing P.Ramlee’s love interest and/or the village ingenué.

Legend has it that her stage name was coined by Run Run Shaw of Shaw Bros when the film Salome which starred Rita Hayworth hit the box office. Other opinions favored the story that the name was given to her by her future husband P. Ramlee. They were married in 1961 and were widely regarded as the first true power couple of the Malaysian film industry. Apart from her artistry, Saloma was also famous as a screen beauty: her hourglass figure, magnificent hairdos and iconic kebaya dresses were copied by young ladies of the 60’s.

Sam Saimun Info

 



The name Sam Saimun, keroncong singer in 60-ies for me is such mystery, until I get this album including his photograph on February 2008. The first time I know his name is from a cassette album which compiled Indonesian national anthems by old singers. They are Sam Saimun, Bram Atjeh, and so on.Why Sam Saimun is such a mystery? Because difficult to find his album. Also may be because his album is only a few, and is not produced anymore by record industry. What makes his name more mysterious is because legend singer Bing Slamet once upon time in a book Musisiku (2007) quoted as saying that Sam Saimun is his teacher in learning to sing keroncong. Wow? Even Bing Slamet recognized him that so high? Come on, who is Sam Saimun? This album at least can show you his talented voice. *
at the back of the sam saimun record above, there was  Bing Slamet sing  a song his own song Risau(B.Slame)with orchest lima seirama dbp A.Usman. This record very rare dificult to find.
 
at  RRI, Bing Slamet a lot to absorb knowledge and experience of the musician Iskandar and keroncong famous musicians, M Sagi, and other musical friends like Sjaifoel Bachrie, Soetedjo, and Ismail Marzuki. And, a lot of influence is the singer Sam Saimun had known since served in Yogyakarta in 1944. For Bing, singer Sam Saimun is figure role model. Not a few who called Bing’s vocal timbre is very similar to Sam Saimun
Penyanyi SAM SAIMUN pernah bernyanyi bersama  ELLY SRI KUDUS, BING SLAMET ,DJUITA, S. EFFENDY ,NURROUGHMA ,MIEKE WIDJAJA
