"Punk" a creole or cultural hybridity?

timurOnline - Punk that's a familiar name in Indonesia, although its existence is still limited to a handful of mob punk but now seems to have mushroomed in several cities in Indonesia. Maybe it's good when I retell the story of the birth of punk who lives in England. It is very meaningful to discuss the issues that will be delivered on the next paragraph. Formation of punk history is inseparable from the social problems that occurred in the 1980s in England, clashes between the upper class with the working class to make working-class people feel aggrieved. And as one of the disappointments of the working class who do this is to make people prkumpulan menginkan independence.
There is also conducting a bitter innuendos against the government in regard it less attention to the working class, as one of his sarcasm maybe we can see the graffiti on the walls of buildings bernadakan satire, other forms which will be a forerunner to the development of punk that is by Punk entrance into the music industry.

The existence of punk itself at that time ostracized and regarded as the dirty, it is worth wasting a word by the people, because their style of life and rightly so. Mohawk hair, smacking the side, rancung in the middle of the hair, using hair color. From the lifestyle they do not care to sleep where, and roam the city during the day even until evening.
Imaging the worst was when the discovery of new punk outbreak that became a byword in the UK at that time, the epidemic is the number of punk kids who use glue instead of beer are not bought by them. Committed their crimes as well be due to damage to their image at the time.

We can not blame them because they also have their own views in tracing his life, perhaps by doing so will make them happy. But they should also pay attention to people around who feel disturbed by the way they are urak-sloppy. A psychologist once said that humans satisfy hunger for knowledge in two ways. First, do research on the environment and regulate the research results in a rational (scientific). Second, rearrange its immediate environment with the goal of making something new (art).

In this case, punk, including the second category in the space of art. Their eccentric lifestyle, sloppy and like to do a scene very similar to the avant-grade. Where the boundaries between life and ideology, art obscured.Punk even though its existence is still slightly less accepted by other people it will always exist because punk has become a lifestyle born of thought left the workers at that time. As time goes by and berkembangnnya era, punk will always decorate.

Punk in Indonesia
It is not known exactly when the entry of punk in Indonesia, but it should be noted that the presence of media at the time it does greatly affect the introduction-introduction of the new things that come from people who master the technology of that era. Imagine if there was no media, maybe punk will shut them live in this world and we will not know the name punk.

One source wikipedia states that 'the punk community in the big cities in Indonesia like Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Malang and started the business records and limited distribution. They make their own record label to shade like-minded bands as well as distribute it to the market. Then the business has grown into a kind of small shops, commonly called distros.

CDs and cassettes are no longer the only merchandise. They also produce and distribute t-shirts, accessories, books and magazines, posters, as well as the services of piercing (piercing) and tattoos. All products sold are limited and the price is very affordable. Within the framework of the philosophy of punk, distro is the implementation of resistance to the consumer behavior of young devotee of Levi's, Adidas, Nike, Calvin Klein, and other foreign branded goods. "

The explanation above is very clear that the punk lifestyle has pervaded the social fabric of life in Indonesia. The role of media is very sacred, because the news is constantly updated so allow people dikita be affected. Especially if the Indonesian people themselves have the same thought of disappointment. Then the introduction of western culture (punk) not easily accepted.

But there seems filtering-filtering on certain things when punk culture into Indonesia. Culture into Indonesia to fashion a well-liked by our people.

Radiation Culture
Living in an age of globalization will facilitate the clash of cultures alien to our culture. Coupled with the internet as a medium that directly connects us with life out there. Cultural contact has an important role in influencing culture with the culture of one another. We can not escape the reality of all this, and things we must do to confront this is to prepare yourself familiar with the culture promoted by the west. Will we just accept it without any ethical considerations? Or will we merge with a foreign culture in our social life?

Flashbacks to the theory of cultural radiation (radiation cultural) that are triggered by a leading historian Arnold J Toynbee. He said that:

First, the cultural aspect was never entered as a whole but partially in accordance with a layer of its aspects. An example of Western culture when the split will have the aspect of the outermost layer aspects of technology, art, ethics and religion.

Second, through the power of an aspect of culture is inversely proportional to the value of culture. Outer aspect of the culture of technology has the lowest value while the innermost layer of the religion has the highest cultural value.
New technologies will be easily accepted by a society but a new religion would be very difficult to accept. This is because the technology as an outer layer that has a cultural value has the lowest value of the highest practical utility.
A society when it receives a new culture will sort out the cultural aspects so that they can filter where the values ​​which the outer and inner values​​.
Thus India and Japan. They accept Western technology but not let go of religion as well as technology.

Third, an aspect of culture will open the door for the inclusion of cultural aspects of the deeper layers. The entry form of television technology has opened up its entrance on the public art aspect. Pop culture of the West that is on the second outer layer (of art) go through the tv and radio technology.

Fourth, the cultural aspects that are not dangerous in a society can be dangerous to other people accept that culture. Toynbee gives an example of nationalism.
Nationalism as an ideology emerging in the Europe of the 19th century as a result of the growth state of national states that proceeds from the 17th century, when the entrance to the East, especially the Middle East into something dangerous because nationalism has divided the Arab world.

Until now no country can be united Arab state be one key area of ​​the failure of peace efforts because of the nationalism that was split. Which is the historical evolution of nationalism in the West has become dangerous when it entered the Middle East. From the arguments above, I understand it as a 'complement and assist' in the process of entry of foreign culture into Indonesia. The existence of the outermost layer of the dikatakanna Toynbee as the technology seems to be the most important gate in the introduction of intensive culture. Although it is outside the culture of the lowest but the role technology now occupies the highest level since its role is indispensable to control the market needs and the masses.

The entry into the punk culture of Indonesia is experiencing filtering on certain things, and become a commodity will pasa but many negative things that can not terlelakan when entry into the punk culture of Indonesia. Just as stated in the proposition to four of Toynbee, he said that the cultural aspects that are not dangerous in a society can be dangerous to other people accept that culture.

In this case the punk into a culture we are talking about. Punk culture in the area west has become a form of style and ideology, because the social circumstances that makes them to always excite her disappointment. Over time, punk had become a commodity market. Likewise, when entering Indonesia. But there is no question as whether it fits with our social order that puts manners, civilized and behave well? If our society is really comfortable with the life of punk, then I say it as kreolisasi culture. Because they disregard their own culture than the culture of the newly introduced by foreigners. And if everything does happen in Indonesia, then it needs to be followed up because if left alone then maybe we will just wait for time to local culture eliminated.

Now this city of my own (second), more punk style was skyrocketed, from people familiar with the city until the settlement of punk. They dress like strangers, because they want to deliberately make it look like other kids his punk. What I found is not much different from the history of punk itself, it is true they were sloppy because it is always annoying the people around, he had them use glue instead of beer and so on. What distinguishes it is that punk may not bring a guitar overseas small / large if diIndonesia used for singing. And whether it is a hybridity for us?

Am I wrong to call this phenomenon as an error? They are supposed to learn, play and preserve their own culture without having to rush to like strangers. Well maybe of you think that I was too subjective in writing about punk, but I ask for you guys. Is entry into Indonesia punk culture is an aesthetic standard of hybridity or decrease? Or it is so contrary to the social fabric of our lives? Or maybe if I say that it is not a problem because they regard it as a style and ideoligi search them?
