Abstract


This paper aims to explain the lyric of the song "Bengawan Solo" by Gesang, which was written in 1940. The song is popular, even among today's Indonesians. In the tourism destination development sector, rivers are considered natural potential. In Java Island specifically and in Indonesia generally, rivers have inspired songs, such as "Kali Progo" (inspired by Progo River), "Di Tepinya Sungai Serayu" (Serayu River), "Kali Ciliwung" (Ciliwung River), "Sungai Kapuas" (Kapuas River), and "Sebiduk di Sungai Musi" (Musi River), while on an international level there is the song "River of Babylon". This paper used the lyric of the song "Bengawan Solo" by Gesang as data source. The data were in the form of lingual units of words and clauses from the lyric. Data interpretation was done lexically and contextually. The results of the analysis show that the lyrics of the song "Bengawan Solo" represents the river’s upstream and downstream characteristics, the water flows during dry and rainy season, and subjective perception of Bengawan Solo.  "Bengawan Solo" also represents the social life of the surrounding communities in utilizing the river. The upstream and the downstream landscape of Bengawan Solo have the potential as a photographic tourism destination for personal documentations, public or personal publications, and as a medium for socializing and promoting rivers as natural tourism destinations.
