Developed in Jamaica in the late 60s, reggae initially referred to a particular music genre that emerged following the development of ska and rocksteady. Around 1986, this music genre whose name was taken from the pronunciation in the African accent, "ragged", began to enter and develop in Indonesia. Black Company is one of the bands that welcomed the arrival of reggae in Indonesia. Unfortunately, the stereotype of reggae in Indonesia seems to be marginalized.
However, in 2009, the name of Mbah Surip through his song entitled ‘Tak Gendong' (I’ll Carry) exploded in the market and indirectly dissolved the stereotype and negative stigma of reggae in Indonesia. A song that is so simple has made everyone memorise and fond of singing Mbah Surip’s songs. At that time, reggae succeeded in gaining massive popularity.
Although in reality the taste of music in the mainstream market continues to change, but reggae still has a place in the hearts of its enthusiasts and big fans. Various reggae communities have been born and developed in a number of regions in Indonesia nowadays. One of them is in Brebes, Central Java.
Brebes Reggae Bersatu (BRB) has become one of the venues for all lovers and reggae communities in the region, known as the production of shallot and salted eggs. In March 2019, BRB Berjaming 2019 will be back on stage at the front yard of Karang Birahi Stradium.
Entrance fee: IDR 20,000 (Presale I, 21 January – 9 February); IDR 25,000 (Presale II, 10-24 February)
