For example, we will be appreciative (either if people did not think much of the music), although it does not understand the lyrics to a song, eg track Kebile-bile (song Sumatera), Bubuy Moon (song Sunda), or his I Feel Good (UK charts) James Brown is already familiar in the ears of society. Music touches to the depth of human soul, he would be late and has intercourse with a person's emotions. Especially when the shoreline, the song Batanghari nine reverb, home sweet home.

During its development, tone, rhythm, melody, and harmony in both the song became the title song with another. What about the solo guitar?
Solo guitar and Phenomena Sahilin

Before this term appears, known as "Excerpts Dawi." Dawi is a solo guitar picker from Besemah area. The mention of a single guitar because it is usually accompanied by a stringed instrument (acoustic guitar), no other instrument, called a single guitar was then also sealed.

Current phenomena, synonymous with the solo guitar music Batanghari nine itself.
Solo guitar golden era is estimated around the year 1960 and the 1970s contemporary with the golden era of rock music in the West sono. "Flower generation" solo guitar is also emerging. At that time, people used to enjoy playing the guitar tungal tired at night after working all day. Before the '70s, in the Land Besemah, one way bachelors (youth) to pedakate of a hero (of course women), through a plucked guitar while singing the verses rhyme. This activity, usually done at night. Distinctive guitar sound has become the media for calling the idol (girl) that he came to beghare (a relationship or some flunky with a girl to approach the heart).

The combination of chanted verse poem with a single guitar sound that's typical named rejung.
Music and songs Batanghari nine through a single guitar are generally melancholy. This relates closely to the structure of society with a sense of brotherhood, kinship, and love going back home. And according to the ripple effect of the flow Batanghari nine, this music has a meandering rhythm with lyrics such as rhyme bersahut long and continuous, like a long river. Currently Batanghari nine songs not only to relieve fatigue life humming or to seduce the girl's idol, but also as a profession and performing arts. Batanghari nine musical performances, sometimes display one or two singers who sing the rhyme bersahut, with a single guitar accompaniment.
Currently, the artist who used and still faithful to his art can be counted on the fingers, among wayah, Isran, Rasnawati, Buchori, Discik, Syafrin, Emilia, Asnadewi, Effendi Rusli, Armin, Arman Idris, Jefri, Paul, Sahilin. Sahilin and remains the most popular mascot in this lane. Sakingnya number of "show", invited President Yudhoyono has ever attended by Sahilin can not, because of clashing schedules. Although not the artist of Jakarta, was a professional and committed Sahilin fixed.
Theoretically, a single guitar plucking techniques Batanghari nine mostly pentatonic (five tone bertangga, compare with the music of Western products that are generally diatonic, seven tones bertangga). Utilizing the dominant melody excerpt bass (strings 4, 5, and 6). Any change songs, often, musicians nyetem (set) his guitar to produce a different rhythm. Of the eight basic tone on the guitar, often relying only five tones. The tones were combined in a pentatonic, like the gamelan, or percussion beats are rhythmic and somewhat monotonous, both melody maupu harmony.
Hanafi is the Department Karawitan, Indonesian Art College (STSI) Padangpanjang, West Sumatra, who observed nine songs are sung Batanghari Sahilin, explaining Sahilin guitar playing was unique. At Muara Kuang Fate song, for example, he played on metrum (unit of rhythm that is determined by the amount and pressure of syllables in each line of poetry) that is different. Metrum initial count of 4 has, in certain parts he played guitar on the count of 6 and 10. In fact, nothing appears on the count of odd, like a count of 5. According to Hanafi, who had a survey with Philip Yampolsky from the Ford Foundation, in his songs, Sahilin not want to be bound by the conventional bar patterns. Sahilin play by following the melodic phrases that basically has a different metrum although at the beginning is indicated by a count of 4 or metrum four per four (4 / 4).
Keeping Pesake Puyang
GENERATION Batanghari nine artists, especially the solo guitar, were increasingly few, he said, because no regeneration of smooth music and songs Batanghari nine. Today conservationists and guardians of this music is generally the elderly, while young people positioned as a music Batanghari nine outdated and hard to be downloaded for emotional and techniques. Interest in studying Batanghari nine of the youth is also low. This can be seen from at least the music and musicians who pursue this track. Communities in South Sumatra have not much idea about the strengths and advantages nine Batanghari music. They do not have a complete picture about the music and song. Although, generally, they never heard the strains of a single guitar. Therefore, we need an understanding of music through fonografi Batanghari nine, for example. At present, nine Batanghari development of music, so little understood, crushed by modern music. If Batanghari nine was an increasing demand, we feared was too late to understand one pesake (legacy) Puyang.
It seems that, in addition to grip Batanghari nine remain alive, the development of music and this song needs to lead to adjustment and the need for appreciation of contemporary society more dynamic and fast-paced behavior, then no one there Batanghari nine musical development considerations also lead to the placement of musical dynamics as the basis dramatic design of cultivating the music itself. Working on developing the concept of folk music which is adjusted with a touch of the performing arts purposes, means the necessary process of creative musical artists to develop and open up opportunities to Batanghari nine who had a pattern of this melancholy melody or rhythm in order to fill the parts in the color composition of a new, more dynamic music and do not leaving the spirit and strength Batanghari nine colors. One, a music group in South Sumatra was studying, researching, and brought the concept of folk songs / ethnicity, (color music Batanghari nine) while relying on the power of a single guitar sound is typical Rejung Pesirah Orchestra formed in early 2008.
Perhaps, we tried to grade dululah appreciative of this art without leaving our passion will flow particular music, pop, okay, we remain with jazz improvisation, we create a world with rowdy rock, dangdut moreover, should not be "wet senggol" eggs, campursari Monggo waelah, with house music, invites nganar Coy, with nine Batanghari, more indeed. What is clear, the message and load petiti petatah-nine poems in Batanghari may be useful for us.
In some areas of Indonesia, the art of folk music has been able to enhance national identity and even become one of the attraction for foreign tourists visiting Indonesia. It can be seen in Bali for example, the art of Balinese gamelan music is not only interested by the Balinese gamelan artists only, namely the younger generation kids elementary school, junior high school and pretty much beat him to practice playing the gamelan musical instruments.
In South Sumatra, to say the intensity of solo guitar music art does not seintensif in Bali and Java, but still, it does show that stretching the community efforts to keep it going. The assumption so far, impressed that just a single guitar pickers among the elderly, turned out when the solo guitar picker amateur Mapping in Single Guitar Festival held in 2003 and 2004 by a circle of young musicians in town Pagaralam, participants up to 65 people? And their average from among the young.
Although the facts remain the sole guitar pickers are present and flowing as in Pagaralam, there has not been able to be used as a barometer of significant developments. Or interested in this art alive and interested in the hamlets of South Sumatra? Pretension that Batanghari nine solo guitar picker just from the old and start losing keeper, is unquestionable. But still need to be concrete efforts from all parties, not only of cultural or musical artists of South Sumatra, even from the general public to contribute to musical culture Batanghari nine can be protected, such as making Batanghari nine local content in music lessons , or the more real to the culture of a single guitar nanggap not only in the event of marriage only. What has been done by a local television station in Palembang, featuring solo guitar artists also deserve thumbs up. So it's ironic, when the opening of Visit Musi 2008 and then the wah, Batanghari nine artists are not coloring his Musi river. In other words, who painted a rainbow on the river Musi is wong Jakarta.
