Kampung yang Tenggelam (the Sinking Village) is the first video from Belkastrelka. The song is taken from track number 9 in Belkastrelka's album "Bela Bangsa". The idea is about corruption, that soon followed by disaster. The characters inspired by "wayang kulit/shadow puppet" of Javanese traditional performance. The Story is also inspired from Javanese mythology "Baru Klinting". The Story is about a dragon who refused by his father (human), and he meditated by encircling the mountain, hope he will accepted by his father as a son . After several years the villager who live near the mountain, found his body. They gathered, kill the dragon, take the meat and have the party. In the next morning there was a ugly child beg for food to the villager, but the villager ignore him and angrily throw him out of the village. Then the child stuck a stick to the ground and said "who can pull the stick from the ground will have a prize". No villager can't pull the stick, but the child can easily pull the stick. After pull the stick, the water comes from the hole where the stick was stuck. The water grow bigger and bigger untill the village complete flooded by water.
the idea is about the disaster that came because people take something that not belong to them, It could be a corruption or just blind exploitation of natural source
