Jaipongan " The Sundanese Traditional Dance"

Jaipongan was a genre of dance art that was born from creativity of an artist from Bandung, Gugum Gumbira. His attention in the people's art that one of them was to knock on xOBJ made him knew and knew true perbendaharan patterns of the movement of the available tradition dance to Kliningan/Bajidoran or the Tilu Beat. The movements of the aperture, pencugan, nibakeun and several styles of the movement mincid from some art above was enough to have the inspiration to develop the dance or art that currently is known by the name of Jaipongan.


Before the form of this performance art emerged, there were several influences that formed the background of the form of this social dance. In West Java for example, the social dance was the influence from Ball Room, that usually in the performance of social dances is not free from the existence ronggeng and pamogoran. Ronggeng in the social dance no longer functions for the ceremony activity, but for entertainment or the method mixed. The existence ronggeng in performance art had the attraction that invited the sympathy of the group pamogoran. For example in the Tilu Beat dance that like that was known by the Sundanese community, it was estimated this art was popular around 1916. As performance art of the people, this art only was supported by simple elements, like waditra that covered the re-chapter, kendang, two kulanter, three beats, and the gong. Likewise with the movements of his dance that did not have the pattern of the standard movement, the dancer's costume that was simple as the populist reflection.

Together with faded him the artistic kind above, former pamogoran (the spectator who played an active role in performance art of the Beat of Tilu/Doger/Tayub) changed his attention in Kliningan performance art, that in the area of the Coast of Utara West Java (Karawang, Bekasi, Purwakarta, Indramayu, and Subang) was known with the Kliningan Bajidoran term that the pattern of his dance and the performance incident him had the resemblance with art beforehand (knocked on xOBJ). In in that, the existence of the dance in the Banjet Mask was enough to be enjoyed, especially in Karawang, where several patterns of the Bajidoran movement were taken from the dance in this Banjet Mask. Choreographically the dance still menampakan patterns of the tradition (knocked on xOBJ) that contained the element of the movements of the aperture, pencugan, nibakeun and several styles of the movement mincid that in turn became the foundation of the Jaipongan dance creation. Several movements of the foundation of the Jaipongan dance apart from the Tilu Beat, Ibing Bajidor as well as the Banjet Mask were Tayuban and Pencak Silat.

The emergence of the work dance of Gugum Gumbira was initially acknowledged as the Tilu Beat the development, that indeed because of the foundation of the dance was the development from knocking on xOBJ. The first work of Gugum Gumbira was still being very thick with the colour ibing knocked on xOBJ, both from the aspect of the choreography and his accompaniment, that afterwards the dance became popular with the Jaipongan term.

Jaipongan Now
The Jaipongan work first that began to be known by the community to be the "Pulus Keser Bojong leaves" dance and "Rendeng Bojong" that both of them were the kind and the teamed dance of the daughter's dance (Putra and the daughter). From the dance emerged several names of the dancer Jaipongan that was competent like Tati Saleh, Yeti Mamat, Eli Somali, and Pepen Dedi Kurniadi. The beginning of this dance emergence could become discussions, that rumours of his centre were the erotic and vulgar movement. However from exposing several print medias, the name of Gugum Gumbira began to be known by the community, everything after the Jaipongan dance during 1980 was staged in TVRI the Jakarta central station. The impact of this popularity more increased the frequency of the performance, both in the television media, hajatan and celebrations that were held by private enterprise's side and the government.

The Jaipongan presence gave the contribution that was quite big against the instigators of dance art to more again active dug up the kind of the people's dance that beforehand inattentive. With the Jaipongan dance emergence, was made use of by the instigators of dance art to hold Jaipongan dance courses, was made also use of by the businessman of night pubs as the guest decoy of the invitation, where the further development of the efforts opportunity of this kind was formed by the instigators of the dance as an effort to empowerment of economics by the name of the Dance Studio or groups in several areas of the West Javanese territory, for example in Subang with Jaipongan the style "kaleran" (north).

The typical Jaipongan characteristics the style kaleran, namely purity, eroticism, the humorist, the spirit, spontaneity, and simplicity (natural, the way it is). That was reflected in the pattern of the presentation of the dance in his performance, there were those who was given the pattern (Ibing Pola) like in Jaipongan art available in Bandung, also had also the dance that not dipola (Ibing Saka), for example in art of Jaipongan Subang and Karawang. This term could be experienced by us to Jaipongan the style kaleran, especially in the Subang area. In his presentation, Jaipongan the style kaleran this, as follows: 1) Tatalu; 2) the Gadung Flower; 3) Kawung Gopar; 4) the Pembukaan Dance (Ibing Pola), usually was brought by the single dancer or Sinden Tatandakan (attacked sinden but could not singing but danced the song sinden/juru kawih); 5) Jeblokan and Jabanan, was the performance part when the spectators (bajidor) sawer money (jabanan) while greetings tempel. The term jeblokan was interpreted as the couple who resided between sinden and the spectator (bajidor).

The further development of the Jaipongan dance happened in taahun 1980-1990-an, where Gugum Gumbira created the other dance like Toka-toka, Setra Sari, Sonteng, Pencug, Kuntul Mangut, Iring-escorted the Puring leaves, Rawayan, and the Kawung Anten Dance. From these dances emerged several dancers Jaipongan that was competent including Iceu Effendi, Yumiati Mandiri, Miming Mintarsih, Nani, Erna, Mira Tejaningrum, Ine Dinar, Ega, Nuni, Cepy, Agah, Aa Suryabrata, and the smoke.

Today the Jaipongan dance might be acknowledged as one of the identities keseniaan West Java, this was visible in several important agendas that in connection with the guest from the foreign country that came to West Java, then was welcomed with the performance of the Jaipongan dance. Likewise with artistic missions to manca the country was always supplemented with the Jaipongan dance. The Jaipongan dance often influenced other arts available in the West Javanese community, both in performance art of the puppet, degung, genjring/terbangan, kacapi jaipong, and almost all the performances of the people and to music dangdut modern that dikolaborasikan with Jaipong became art of Pong-Dut.Jaipongan that has diplopori by Mr. Nur & Leni

Bandung a haven for snack-lovers and shoppers

Bandung, the capital of West Java province, is about 180 kilometers distant from the national capital, Jakarta.

The city is well-known as a haven for snack-lovers and shoppers, as thousands of food vendors, upmarket restaurants and factory outlets selling garments, bags, footwear and other such things at low prices can be found everywhere around the city.

According to, which provides information to food lovers, there are at least 567 places where you can buy snacks and delicious food in Bandung, a city now populated by over 2.5 million people.

They offer a wide array of food, ranging from traditional Bandung fare to Chinese and European cuisine. Most of these places are usually crowded with visitors on weekends, particularly long week-ends.

Bandung has a host of unique dishes, including peuyeum, baso tahu, baso tahu goreng (better known as batagor) and mie kocok.

It can also boast unique beverages like bajigur and bandrek, both good for warm you up. Bajigur is made from a mixture of coconut milk, brown sugar and kolang-kaling (fruit of the sugar palm), while bandrek is made of a mixture of ginger essence, brown sugar and cinnamon.

The following is a guide for you to find the locations of snack and food centers as well as shopping places in Bandung, a city also dubbed the Paris of Java.

Traditional cuisine

In the southern part of Bandung, or to be exact in Jl. Sukarno-Hatta, about 500 m to the east of Leuwipanjang bus station, you can find a line of restaurants serving uniquely Sundanese dishes, like nasi timbel (rice cooked in banana leaves) plus associated side dishes like salted fish, various fried vegetables, fried fish or chicken or steamed fish or chicken in banana leaves.

A complete ""nasi timbel must always be accompanied by terasi (a mixture made of chili, shallot, garlic, salt, condiment and brown sugar.)

If you go past two traffic lights from Leuwipanjang to the east, you can find two famous Sundanese traditional restaurants, Ampera and Laksana.

Although the two are opposite each other, they have not tried to grab each other's customers. Aside from selling Sundanese dishes, they also sell unique Sundanese snacks like peuyeum (fermented cassava) and various uniquely West Javanese items for souvenirs like keyhangers in the shape of an angklung (a uniquely Sundanese musical instrument made of suspended bamboo tubes that sound when shaken) or a shadow puppet character.

Another famous Sundanese restaurant, Sari Sunda, about 2 kilometers to the east of Ampera and Laksana, entertains its visitors with Sundanese music while they enjoy Sundanese dishes sitting crosslegged on the floor with panoramic views around them.

Similar Sundanese cuisine is also available at a number of restaurants on Jl. Dago and around Gasibu, in front of the West Java governor's office, which is known as Gedung Sate.

If you would like to enjoy Sundanese dishes and at the same time savor the beauty of Bandung's panoramic scene (particularly the city lights at night), pay a visit to Dago Tea House. Apart from serving Sundanese dishes, it also offers teh poci (hot tea from a clay teapot), bandrek and bajigur. If you are lucky, you can eat your food while enjoying a Sundanese music and dance performance.

Bandrek and bajigur, can also be obtained at foodstalls in Taman Cilaki, behind Gedung Sate. One such bajigur stall is Bajigur Supratman, which has been there for 45 years. Also in Taman Cilaki you can find other foodstalls selling seafood and steak at low prices.

Another drink associated with Bandung is fresh milk. You can easily get it at Lembang, north Bandung. Or just go to Bandoengsche Melk Centrale (MC) on Jl. Aceh, about 5 km to the west of Bandung City Hall.

This building, now renovated, used to be a center for the production and distribution of milk to all parts of Bandung in the 19th century.

Accommodating about 100 visitors, it offers a menu consisting milk and other foods made from milk like yogurt, kefir and milkshake, all sold at prices ranging from Rp 1,000 to Rp 4,500 per glass.

If you like peuyeum you can try it at the intercity bus station at Leuwipanjang, Jl. Soekarno-Hatta. If you like it, you should also try colenak (roast ""peuyeum plus a solution of brown sugar and grated coconut).

One famous outlet is Murdi Putra, Jl. Ahmad Yani 777, off Pasar Cicadas, about 5 km to the east of downtown Bandung. The counter uses up about 70 kg per day because it also supplies its colenak to upmarket hotels and restaurants in Bandung. It is also available around Pasar Simpang Dago in the northern part of Bandung.

Batagor is one of the most favorite dishes in Bandung. It is made of a mixture of sago and fish put into tofu. It is also served with chili mixed with peanut sauce.

The oldest vendor of batagor is Batagor Isan on Jl. Astanaanyar. It began its business back in 1969.

Other venues where you can find batagor include Batagor Kingsley, Jl. Veteran and Batagor Riri on Jl. Burangrang. Close to Batagor Riri you can find a family restaurant, Saboga, which sells a combination of baso tahu and siomay (steamed ravioli).

In front of these you can find a food court that sells Martabak San Francisco (pancakes with a savory filling), a place always crowded with buyers.

If you wish to sample Western dishes, go to Bukit Dago, where you can find restaurants and cafes such as The View, The Peak, Callista and Sierra. Here you can also enjoy nighttime views of the city.

Handicrafts and clothing

If you need uniquely Sundanese or West Javanese souvenirs, just go to Jl. Braga, on the left side of Gedung Merdeka. Here you can find shops selling a variety of handicraft items. The nearest is Sarinah Department Store, about 100 meters behind Gedung Merdeka. If you would like to buy genuine wooden puppets, go to Jl. Pangarang, behind Hotel Savoy Homann, to find the makers.

If you like shopping, don't forget to go to Cihampelas, west Bandung, as this is where you can find a lot of shops selling low-priced jeans. If you would like to buy low-priced footwear, go to Cibaduyut in south Bandung.

If you wish to buy more than souvenirs, go to the north part of Bandung where you can find a lot of factory outlets selling branded items ranging from trousers, shirts, footwear and bags to many other items, all at low prices.

Scores of ""factory outlets"" can be found along Jl. Dago, Jl. Riau and Jl. Setiabudi. There are at least five major factory outlets on Jl. Riau alone: Heritage, The Summit, Metropolis, Renarriti and China Town.

Of course, there is a price war between these factory outlets. The Summit, for example, has started a special counter, ""Forever Sale"", which sells many types of garment at just Rp 10,000.

Along Jl. Dago, you can also find a lot of factory outlets. Dago, which is at its most crowded at weekends, is also an area where you can find a lot of vendors of colenak, roast corn and roast sticky rice, plus many other snacks like roast banana with cheese and toast.

A week is not long enough to visit all the venues where you can buy snacks and foods and do your shopping. A haven for shoppers, Bandung attracts a least 50,000 tourists -- 70 percent from Jakarta -- on weekends, a reason why the city's main roads, particularly in the north, are always congested on Saturdays and Sundays.
