The performances include:
– from Cirebon, an area in West Java that borders to Central Java, and thus has a really interesting mixed culture of Sundanese and Javanese.
Guests were given angklung of different notes and the conductor led them to play several songs. At first I thought it would not work, but I was terribly wrong! It really worked beautifully 😉
I think I always like listening to Rampak Kendang ever since I accidentally heard it live on the terrace of my previous school in Bandung. The performers that evening played Rampak Kendang with a twist, with some jokes here and there that reminded me of the old Sundanese comedy group D’Bodors.
Tari Rakyat Cikeruhan
(Cikeruhan Folk Dance)
At the end of the evening, the guests were asked to join the dance together with the performers.
This event is organized under the auspices of the LEAD Programme of the Faculty of Science, Leiden University
