Uniquely Java Culture

Hello everyone today I wanted to share that comes from the Javanese gamelan. One of the famous Indonesian culture in music is the art of gamelan. Gamelan music exist in Java, Madura, Bali, and Lombok. Of course, variants of the different instruments used. Gamelan is a set of musical instruments with pentatonic melodies, which consists of Kendang, Bonang, Bonang Successor, Demung, Saron, Peking (Gamelan), Kenong & kethuk, Slenthem, Gender, Gong, Xylophone, fiddle, zither, flute. The main component of gamelan instruments are bamboo, metal, and wood. Each instrument has its own function in a gamelan music show.

Gamelan is found in the temple of Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java, which stood since the 8th century. In relief, it looks some equipment such as bamboo flute, bells, drums in various sizes, harp, stringed musical instrument that is swiped and plucked, including some idea of the element metal musical instruments. Subsequent developments, gamelan is used to accompany the puppet and dance. Until eventually stand as the music itself and equipped with sound sinden.

 

The second Art Javanese culture is Shadow puppets. Shadow puppets played by a puppeteer who is also the narrator’s dialogue puppet characters, accompanied by gamelan music played by a group of nayaga and songs sung by the singer. Puppeteer puppet behind the screen, the screen is made of white cloth, while behind him flashed electric lamps or oil lamps (blencong), so that the audience is on the other side of the screen can see the shadow puppet who fall into color. In order to understand the story of wayang (play), the audience must have knowledge of puppet characters whose image appears on the screen.

Beautiful smile of a friend

The first thing I do before writing is to see the face, eyes and someone smile, make me write a story that would be interesting for the people’s happiness. A smile makes all the wonderful and beautiful. Such as seeing a genuine smile from our friend, family or partner. Do you agree with me ?
