Hallo, everyone. I am Annisa Syafitri from SMAN 5 Bandung, West Java Indonesia.
I have a new flat. It’s name is ‘NASYAWIRAHA’. It stands from my name and my closed friends in Class XII H.
NA is from ErwiNA, SYA is from my name Annisa SYAfitri, WI is from WIjayanti, RA is from ZahRA and
HA is from our Class XII H which is spelled HA in Indonesian.
In this occasion my flat joined me to visit A traditional Music Instrument Gallery belongs to Mr. Ujo.
This gallery is famous with ‘SAUNG UJO’.
Here we can find a lot of ornaments that can be used in performance of traditional art like dancing and Puppet Show.
Besides that you can practice Anklung which is the most popular traditional music instrument from West Java.
Do you want to know how to play Anklung? Come here!.
Behind us you can see ‘Si Cepot’. Si Cepot is a famous character in the Puppet Show ‘Wayang Golek’ from West Java.
It is funny and all he said make us laugh. Although Si Cepot comes from West Java, he can speak English.
Why? Because ‘Wayang Golek’ is often performed in front of Foreign tourists.
Look!, Nasyawiraha showed you a mask. It is used in Mask Dance.
Mask Dance is usually danced by a beautiful girl. She dances gracefully with a mask covers her face.
Can you imagine that a girl with an ugly face dancing in front of you?.
But at the end of her performance she opens the mask and we can see how beautiful she is.
‘Nasyawiraha’ took a picure with the girls who work in the Gallery. Behind them, there is a set of Anklung.
In this picture you can see some of traditional arts and ornaments that you can buy for gifts
