Between Music of India or Indonesia

Indonesia and India have almost many same factors inside the nation. Both countries get freedom from western colonization. India got independence earlier than Indonesia thus India is the first country that acknowledges the Independence of Indonesia back in 1945. What about both music style? With same multicultural and people with many kind of religions, India and Indonesia develop a different combination in music. Because I am Indonesian, I know about music genre called Dangdut, a series of music rhythm especially for majority people in the low and middle class. If you look back to the India’s music, you would see some similarities between Indonesia’s Dangdut and India’s music. How to compare them? Just see on the public video provider such as Youtube.

In spite of the fact the thousand kilometers are the distance between India and Indonesia but both countries share same interest in the many kind of music. Dangdut is not the only music genre in Indonesia. There are tons different more.
