Asian games 2018 is near!
This occation is a big chance for our country to introduce our culture and our traditional heritage to the all of the Asian continent. And one of our widely known traditional art is called Wayang Orang or People’s Puppet.
Wayang orang origins cames from Central Java, it was founded by Sultan Hamangkurat I in 1731. It is probably one of the oldest traditional art that still exist until now. Wayang orang show is always accompanied by gamelan sounds and some traditional Javanese musical instruments, it is use to support the cast when they have a punch line and also to be use when some individual performing a traditional dance in the middle of the play. It is still really famous in the rural area of Central Java as one of their entertainment from time to time, even though it also still exist in a district area around Java Island, including Jakarta.
And this building here is located at Senen street near to Senen station named Wayang Orang Bharata Purwa. The show itself held on every Saturday night at 7:30pm. The building itself is very old and of course full of history. You can also eat some traditional food such as, ketoprak or gado-gado at the time of the show takes place to add a sense of the stronger hometown.
Indonesia is a country with a rich culture art, musical instruments, traditional dance, exotic food and so on. We as the new generation, should take care and conserve the heritage from our ancestors.
Proud to be Indonesian.
Let us introduce our culture!
