Enjoy Jegog Music at Pinge Tourism Village

Enjoy Jegog Music at Pinge Tourism VillageON hearing the Jegog gamelan, people will surely remember about Jembrana, a county located in the western part of Bali. It happens because Jegog, a traditional bamboo gamelan instrument, was born and grows well in the county. Now, similar traditional gamelan can also be found in Tabanan, precisely at Pinge, a tourism village frequently visited by tourists.
A set of such gamelan instrument has been accomplished and even it had been used to make its first performance on Paing Galungan, Friday (Mar 29). In the trials, the village specifically brought in the Karya Praja Budaya jegog troupe from Pendem hamlet, Poh Santen, Jembrana. The music compositions included the Tabuh Pengungkab Sabda, Cangak Merengang, Galang Kangin and accompaniment of Joged-jogedan.
Although the stage looked so simple, namely at people’s courtyard, the performance was thronged by numerous spectators. They were from local village and neighboring village. Foreign tourists staying at the village did not miss the art attractions. Even, a foreign couple from France continued to immortalize the composition and performance.  

I Wayan Wendra, a local artist who initiated the Jegog gamelan music at Pinge village said the traditional music instrument was intended to complement the existing unique art at Pinge village. “Pinge already has the Leko and Bumbung Gebyog, and now it needs to be complemented with the Jegog. Aside from preserving traditional arts, the existence of Jegog also supports Pinge as a tourism village,” he said.
All this time, explained this traditional musician, Tabanan was synonymous with Joged Bumbung. However, this rice granary region had a variety of rare arts that needs to be popularized. Among them, there were tamplak, genggong, blown genggong, gebyog and some others. “In the future, I will develop a special bamboo gamelan instrument at the clean and beautiful Pinge village,” he said.
This gamelan composer said the Jegog he made exactly had the same type and tone as the existing Jegog in Jembrana. The gamelan set consisted of three barangan ugal completed with pemade (front row), three units of kancil (back row), three units of suir (low pitch as penyahcah of gong kebyar), two units of kuntung (jublag in gong kebyar gamelan instrument), two units of undir (having tone between jegog and jublag), and one unit of jegog (largest instrument in the rear).

They were made from bamboo originally sourcing from Tabanan region like bamboo belonging to species petung (Gigantochloa hasskarliana), gesing (Bambusa blumeana) and sweet bamboo. A single ensemble consisted of 18 units of gamelan instrument. “As an artist, I would like to develop any kind of gamelan instrument so that all can be sustainable. These gamelans will be made a studio totally containing bamboo gamelans,” he said. (BTN/015)
