[MFP records/Doglau Records] Pop Jawa

Found a bunch of Surinam Jawa pop records at a second hand shop here in Rotterdam. Usually this shop only has stacks of James Last records, tons of classical music and even more Schlager compilations. So i was quite happy to find these. Didn't really know what to expect but the titles seemed Indonesian and since my girlfriend is really into Krontjong music I didn't have to think twice about picking these up. And am quite happy about that. Some of them I didn't enjoy that much (I've listed them on ebay now). But the ones I posted here are really nice. It's mainly soul with a krontjong vibe and even has some funky synth bits! If anyone has more information about these artists or labels please let me know.

  1. If you look at the cover scans, Side A of the Ricky Djoewan EP is actually Johan Viem (they each get a side of the record; two songs each). Johan's name doesn't sound very Indonesian, though. Might he be a local artist in Suriname? I really liked the first J Viem track. Thanks.
