Jumbrong, also known as Jumat Gombrong, emerged as a vibrant rap community event in 2020, coinciding with the onset of the pandemic in Indonesia. The initiative was spearheaded by Mario Zwinkle, Anto G Tribe, and several local rappers who sought to bring hip-hop gigs to Jogja city as the pandemic neared its end, albeit with a limited audience.

The event earned its distinctive name from being held every Friday, and the majority of musicians and attendees worn clothing described as "gombrong" – loose attire featuring baggy pants, characteristic of the hip-hop culture. More about the members and the history of JUMAT GOMBRONG: Mario Zwinkle, a prominent rapper in Indonesia renowned for his more than three albums, including "Soul Plane" with standout tracks like Street Cruising and Funk Yeah.
