I can see how this music was influenced by Schlager music. Maybe stuff like Goombay Dance Band and Boney M are similar too. This type of music is basically Indo pop music.

The german word "Schlager" does not describe a genre, it literally means "Hit".
And "pop" is short for Popular, which is what the common people (latin "populus") like much. Basic ingredients are simple catchy melodies and just 3 or 4 different chords.

But why do you ask? Isn't there simularities with keroncong music? That got crossed-over with Hawaiian music, having descended itself from Portuguese folk music.

Current portuguese pop is called Pimba. One very random example:

Simple harmonics and melodies, with lyrics that are naughty. It is much of the same all over the world.

Also got a schlager/after-ski joke vibe, like joke and theme scores from weekend family tv-shows and such that medley-ed and mashed all they wanted (+ some eastern spice in there too)..

Instrumentally remember the soundtrack to the Legend of the Mystical Ninja. Japanese video games from the early 90s, mixing it all up.. dunno if its that similar but maybe some inspiration:
