Keroncong band performance

It’s actually the name of aย ukulele-like instrument & anย Indonesianย musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The soundย chrong-chrong-chrongย comes from this instrument). So, the bandย consists of aย flute, a violin ๐ŸŽป , a melody guitar ๐ŸŽธ , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽค

 

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has learnt that 1๏ธโƒฃ ukulele named “cak”, a steel-stringed. The instrumentalist strums chords with up to 8๏ธโƒฃ strums per beat in 4/4 rhythm. The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings. As a set, both the “cak” & “cuk” form an interlocking pair that mostly gives Kroncong its characteristic kron & chong ๐Ÿ˜Š

Tor Tor Dance & Gordang Sembilan

Tor Tor dance & 9๏ธโƒฃ great drumbeats/ percussion (Gordang Sembilan in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ‘s national language)ย are theย cultural heritage of Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ‘s Mandailing community, which originally came from Mandailing, North Sumatera of Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ

 

It’s a slow motion dance with the movement of the feet / toe to toe ๐Ÿ‘ฃ & hand ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป movements with a music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ rhythm played with the traditional music instruments e.g. Gondang, Flute, Trumpet ๐ŸŽบ etc. At present, Tor tor dance is to celebrating harvesting, welcoming guests, wedding ๐Ÿคต๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿฝ ceremonies. No โŒ longer associated with the religious / mystical ceremonies in the past years

Kuda Kepang

It was 1๏ธโƒฃst introduced in the early 20th century when Javanese immigrants ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ, who brought this unique dance & 1๏ธโƒฃst arrived in the southern tip ofย  West Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ It’s usually performed by 9 to 15 pax, usually all men dancers traditional Javanese clothes

In the past years, Kuda Kepang is believed to have a strong linkage to the spirit world, however at present it becomes a regular dance performance for the birthday ๐ŸŽ‚ of the Sultan of Johor, state government celebrations & cultural shows in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

It’s a traditional Javanese braided hobbyhorse dance & in the dance performance, all the dancers will ride the 2๏ธโƒฃD mock horse which is traditionally made of bamboo ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‹, then painted & decorated with colorful paints and cloth to resemble a horse ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿด Some of the dance movements in the Kuda Kepang rituals are based on traditional Malay silat
