Let’s celebrate the third anniversary of throwback party specialists, Videostarr, this Friday, with one of the pioneers of funkot music, Barakatak. Funkot, short for funky kota, is a mixture of dangdut and House music, which emerged in the early ‘90s. With simple lyrics and catchy Sundanese pop-infused beats, Barakatak’s earworm hits such as Musiknya Asyik and Maju Maju Maju may be stuck in one’s head for some time.
Barakatak went on a two-decade hiatus before performing again in recent years, mesmerizing both younger and older audiences. Other DJs will be performing at the party, such as Merdi and Sid the Housecat.
