This is classical music in Lampung. Hila Hambala seems to make a lot of songs like this, sometimes combined with more pop-y music in the background (like some Iranian artists). You can find more of these by looking up "lagu klasik lampung" on YouTube (lagu
means 'song'), which gives you this
. I posted this song
called "Assalamu alaikum" in another variety of Lampung called Lampung Nyo once (in the "What song are you listening to right now?" thread). The video quality isn't very good, and the lyrics barely show up in the subtitles. (The prestige variety the song you posted was in is called Lampung Api and is spoken near the western part of the far south of Sumatra. Lampung Nyo is spoken on the eastern part).
This is a very different song from what I usually listen to: a(pop) song by an Indonesian pop, rock, and R&B female duo called Ratu. The lady who sings their songs is named Pinkan Mambo. This song is called "Salahkah Aku Terlalu Mencintaimu," so I thought I'd post it for no other reason than the fact that I just posted a song in Malay called "Salahkah Aku," too.
The lyrics are in the subtitles:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EZ17pSutIY
This is a song much more like what I normally post! It's a campursari
song called "Rasa Suka." Campursari
is a combination of traditional Javanese music and dangdut and is usually performed in Javanese, but this song is in Bahasa Indonesia (or perhaps it's a Bahasa Indonesia version of a Javanese song?). Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the lyrics to this song anywhere:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt-u6IDI4I8
