Weekly Photo Challenge : A BIT OF CENTRAL JAVANESE CULTURE/ SEDIKIT TENTANG BUDAYA JAWA TENGAH


I am proud to be Indonesian, and this is the trademark of my humble house here. Indonesia has got various cultures and every part of this country has its own customs. Though culture is actually universal, but with different trade mark. For this week’s challenge, I’d like to present only tiny parts of it. You know, share about more than 500-700 cultures here is very hard and takes much time…hehehe.

The first, I share some display about Surakarta Royal Wedding. It is a little bit different to common Javanese wedding. I am lucky enough to see it directly, even though it wasn’t the real one. This display is intended to share people about Javanese royal wedding tradition, which has been simplified, but still wonderful.

While for the second one, I share about DUGDERAN dance which is held in Semarang for celebrating Ramazan. DUG is sound of drum and DER is sound of firecracker. Let me tell you later in my next post about this tradition.
