Abstract

Every community has value order narrated as the form of local wisdom in many aspects of life, including art. This article described local wisdom in the form of music art among Youths in the Tenggerese Custom Community. This article is the product of ethnographic research conducted by the author in Tenggerese Community, Tosari Sub District, Pasuruan, East Java. The data of the research was collected through participatory observation, in-depth interviews, and focus group discussion (FGD). The data obtained were then validated using source triangulation. Meanwhile, to analyze the theory, this study employed A.R. Radcliffe Brown's Structure and Function theory approach. The result of the research showed that the Young Tenggerese Community's thinking construction, particularly in Tosari, was highly affected by customary values, including art and particularly music art. There was concept or value in Tenggerese customary community underlying its community's life attitude, "anteng-seger” (Tengger) concept meaning peaceful and prosperous. Anteng value can also be defined as calm and not talking too much, which can be elaborated again into the concept of "SepiingGunem, RameingGawe" meaning "talk less do more". Majority Tenggerese youths love art, particularly music art; one of their favorite music is patrol music.
