From Oration to Music

Bung Karno, a former Indonesia President, was an ideologist, a thinker, as well as a stylist orator. His orations mostly on nationalism were well documented and recorded. Look at this album entitled Pidato Bung Karno “Nasionalisme” (Bung Karno Speech on Nationalism) which was published by Yayasan Pendidikan Sukarno, Jakarta, with no date of releasing.

His orations was mostly recognized as rythmical or even musical. So that when his orations used to fill partly in a such song, that song will be heard more dramatic. Look at an album entitled Bung Karno Milik Rakyat Indonesia by Bram Kampungan (Musica, 1999). This album was a repackaging from the original version of Kelompok Kampungan album. There is one song entitled Bung Karno which used Bung Karno’s speech on Indonesia and Utara Kuru.  The rythm of oration did match to the rythm of the song. *
