The street vendors in Jogja, the "bakul" draw attention by the sounds they produce: every kind of food is announced by the sound of an object. A sound of a spoon on a plate is "rujak" (fruit), a cow bell is "satay", a spoon on a bowl of noodles is "bakso ayam". The sound of boiling water "putu" (coconut cake) and a cart with a loud speaker with LOUD "dangdut" music is "getuk" (cassava cakes). The latter is indicative of a trend: traditional sounds are gradually taken over by electronically amplified sounds.
