This style of Javanese dance and music grew out of another dance style, ketuk tilu. Jaipongan is an onomatopoeic moniker derived from the rhythmic and percussion-like expressive sounds made by band members to emphasize aspects of the music. The ketuk tilu structure was rhythmically quickened, and augmented with twist movements and other elements from rock & roll.
