Project Pop is a music group from Bandung, Indonesia.  They are famous for their comedic lyrics and performances.  In 2003, Project Pop fused dangdut with new metal in the song “Dangdut is the Music of My Country,” which is off their album Pop OK.  The song is humorous, creative, and all about unity.  In September 2003, Farah ‘Fairy’ Mahdzan provided interesting background information and a play-by-play of the video at http://www.myindo.com/story/198.asp in a post titled “Project Pop Makes Dangdut Hip!”
