HomeBlogs Gedhongan Traditional Art Performance
Gedhogan used to be performed as entertainment after doing a
traditional rice paddy peeling in preparation for a wedding or a
circumcision celebration. The sound of music is made from the tools
that they use to peel the rice, like the alu, lesung and lumpang. Those
tools sounded good and have a special tone. They were singing while
playing the musical instruments.
At this time, the musical
instruments used are supplemented with two chunks of iron called a
kempul and a gendang, which is a kind of drum.
