"Gendingan, an effort preserving Cultural Heritage" Banjarnegara Things to Do Tip by sarisavitri

Banjarnegara Things to Do: 2 reviews and 4 photos


In the same village of The Rafting basecamp, there you can find Groups of Musicians of GENDINGAN - Javanese Traditional Music.
For each village have their own group who together sitting for every Friday night in the same place and playing Gendingan.
It has so much meaning for them, as their effort to preserving their heritage. It is bad and true, because i saw all the players are middle-aged. Men playing the musical instrument and women singing the javanese song and the singer it self called SINDEN. No Youth joined.
It was really good music to hear in cold night of Banjarnegara.

Address: Dusun Kutayasa, Madukoro Subdistrict, Banjarnegara
Directions: From Bus Stop of Singomerto Trijunction, take local transport called ANGKOT to the village.
