Abstract

This study is ethnographic research of the Indonesian Mafia Shalawat music group in Ponorogo, East Java, by using the communication theory of Jane Collier and Milt Thomas as a framework for discussing two important themes, i.e.efforts to strengthen the identity of Nahdliyin youth and the construction of Nahdliyin youth identity in the whirling dances Mafia Shalawat Indonesia. The results of this study are First, The whirling dances Mafia Shalawat Indonesia as a medium to strengthen the identity of Nahdliyin youth in the digital era. The model is semi-virtual in which conventional stage art is combined with publications on social media youtube, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, twitter, streaming TV, Islamic popular music, reading sholawat, and Sufi dances as cultural Sufism. Second, the construction of Nahdliyin youth identity with the whirling dances Mafia Shalawat Indonesia is an exploration and commitment of deradicalization through moderate Islam (wasathiyah), ahlus sunnah wal jama'ah ideologies, love peace, gender equality, patriotism, nationalism of the Republic of Indonesia, trends, lifestyles, multicultural dialogues, rejecting extreme Islamic ideology (left or right), and rejecting radical acts such as terrorism, fighting between youths, separatist movements, betrayal, and so on.
