Tarling Is Darling

Synopsis

The traditional ‘tarling dangdut’ music of Indramayu, an area on the Java island, is famous for its erotic dances and skimpily-clad singers. Muslim leaders wanted to have it banned, but it still circulates in the society. Jaham, a tarling dangdut songwriter is faced with a challenge from clerics who want him to write Islamic tangling dangdut songs. With the help of an erotic singer, Jaham writes down his religious pieces.
