We will present the song of the people of North Sumatra. This song is about the Batak people who wander and miss their beloved hometown. Although only through the song, the proximity to the hometown is so pronounced, because Tano Batak or in Indonesian means Tanah Batak is always attached to the heart. Some songs from North Sumatra tell about their natural beauty. One of them is "Samosir Island" composed by Nahum Situmorang. Batak musicians are quite famous. This song tells about the island of Samosir which becomes the home of the Batak community. Being told in the song, wherever he  wanders, he will return to his hometown, Samosir Island. Even, he will be buried on the island of Samosir. This song also describes how he loves his hometown, Samosir Island. Until now, the Pulau Samosir  song has been sung by many Batak singers with various versions. The song "Sitogol" comes from South Tapanuli. Mandailing language song "Sitogol", the language of the South Tapanuli community, tells the story of the call to cheer and sing "Sitogol", although perhaps the heart is sad.
