Musik Betawi yang dikenal dengan nama Tanjidor konon berasal dari perkebunan Belanda yang terletak di luar kota sekitar Batavia, seperti Depok, Cibinong, Bogor, Bekasi dan Tangerang, tempat dimana para budak setempat kerap memainkan untuk majikan Belandanya. Ketika perbudakan dihapuskan pada abad 19, kelompok pemusik meneruskannya dengan ngamen sebagai mata pencaharian mereka. Tradisi ngamen ini terus berlanjut sampai sekarang. Pengaruh Eropa terlihat jelas dari pemakaian alat musiknya seperti trompet, bas, klarinet, simbal dan lainnya. Saat ini Tanjidor telah melebur dengan musik asal Malay Gambang kromong, menggunakan alat music tamborin, beduk, gendang, kempul dan lainnya
