Tembang macapat" is a part of Javanese traditional artwork with special characteristics. From the verbal aspect, Tembang macapat is classified in the category of bound poetry (not free poetry). It contains guru lagu, guru wilangan, and guru gatra which bounds respectively during the process of making each lines and the technique to sing it. As a part of soul expression, this type of Tembang contains exotic and exclusive values. In addition to its distinctive form aspect, "Tembang macapat" also contains certain messages related to the value of philosophic and didactic on each type of Tembang. Nevertheless, from the pragmatic aspect and its application in today's society, the prospect is less encouraging. This is due to the weakness of coaching and preservation in the community especially the cultural connections to the younger generation. The phenomenon of the shifting direction of global culture must be a consideration of the direction of the development of "Tembang macapat" both in the format and the content so that the connectivity becomes part of mind portrait in the more practical, accommodative, expressive, and functional era.
