The song entitled “kenangan di desa” tells about the beautiful and lovely panorama of the village with wide paddy fields, yellowing rice, and singing birds singing as well as sweet  memories that could not be forgotten for good. Although it is Keroncong genre, the Sundanese music both in its rhythm and music is dominantly felt in the song. The combination of Keroncong and Sundanese music makes the song enjoyable to be listened.
