Nilan (2004: 190) argues demographically that the number of Indonesian youth is very abundant,
but they have lost their identity since 1998. Bayat & Harrera (2010: 17, 129) emphasizes the high rate of
unemployment and marginality dragging them to radical Islam. Economic marginality causes millions of
Indonesian youth to not be able to enjoy the latest trends in fashion, music, ITC and so on. This article about
the youth music group of Nahdlatul Ulama "Mafia Shalawat Indonesia" is an ethnographic study in East Java,
communication theory Jane Collier and Milt Thomas used by the writer as a framework in discussing two
important themes: The emergence of a new pattern of popular music; and The Whirling Dance of Mafia
Shalawat's role in constructing the identity and behavior of Nahdliyin Indonesian youth. The conclusion of
this study is first, the pattern of popular mainstream music in urban circles in the metropolis environment; and
the pattern of popular suburban music that tends to underground is populist. Second, the construction of the
identity of the Nahdliyyin youth through The Whirling Darvises as a media instills religious values, patriotism
and nationalism for the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI), multiculturalism, gender equality,
autonomy, class relations and so on. Youth behavior is classified into trends, lifestyles, consumption patterns
and relationships between generations.
