[Gesang Martohartono at the JVC Studio (1994) Age76]
Quite some time ago I wrote in this blog on the topic of keroncong. The most famous song is "Bengawan Solo" by Gesang.
Sadly, Gesang passed away at a ripe old age of 92, yesterday, Thursday 20 May 2010.
May he rest in peace.

As a tribute to Gesang, below is probably one of his final impromptu renditions of the greatest evergreen "Bengawan Solo":
(December 06, 2007 — Gesang, maestro keroncong Indonesia kini telah memasuki usia 90 tahun, tapi di usia yang telah senja tersebut, Gesang masih bisa menyanyikan lagu Bengawan Solo sebagai oleh-oleh tim Kabari dari Solo)
