The American dangdut rock band was invited by the United States Consulate Medan to hold their concerts in Medan, North Sumatera as part of the celebration of 70th year anniversary of U.S. and Indonesia relations in the city from 13 to 14 March 2019. 

Dangdut Cowboys is a Pittsburgh-based band founded in 2007 by Fulbrighter and the University of Pittsburgh Ethnomusicology Professor Andrew Weintraub. The group has been performing top dangdut songs at concerts across Indonesia as a way to promote the country’s signature music while expressing America’s spirit of cultural diversity.
