Rayuan Pulau Kelapa

Rayuan Pulau Kelapa (Solace on Coconut Island) is an Indonesian song written by Ismail Marzuki (1914-1958), who wrote a number of popular tunes in the country’s early post-independence period. The lyrics praise Indonesia’s natural beauty, such as its flora, islands, and beaches, and profess undying love for the country. The song is a nostalgic favorite among Indonesian expatriates, particularly those who left the country for the Netherlands in the 1940s and 1950s, after independence.
