Simpleness in Naming


The second day of the festival of traditional arts in Kaliurang 28 to 29 January 2012. 35 tourism village invited to perform at the festival, but only attended by 12 tourism village. 8 tourism village has performed on the first day.

On the second day there are four villages that performing. Those four villages were Tanjung tourism village with the arts named ‘Pek Bung’, Rumah Domes tourism village with the arts named ‘Ronda Tek-Tek’. Kelor tourism village with the arts named ‘Klenthingan’ and the last is Jethak 2 tourism village with the arts named ‘Gejog Lesung’.

Most of the musical instrument displayed are percussion instruments. If you are in the village, you will find that the naming of any kind has been done not with complicated thoughts or anything that makes your forehead frowns, yet simple.

‘Pek Bung’ derives from the sound of ‘Pek’ (small bamboo gong) and ‘bung’ (barrel covered with a rubber tire). ‘Ronda Tek-Tek’ comes from sound of ‘tek-tek’ (bamboo blade clashing) and it is usually played when patrolling the village.

Giving the name of art was also done by the name of the instrument used. There are art named ‘Klenthingan’ because it uses klenthing (instrument made of clay to collect water). There are also art named ‘Gejog Lesung’ because it uses lesung (wooden slats shaped for pounding rice). Some of the art name implies that simplicity is always maintained in the village, include giving the name of art.

After the performance of ‘Klenthingan’ by Kelor tourism village, there is a thing that attracts the attention of the host. By demonstrating to the audience about the instrument, he said that the instrument was always get cold when it was played. He said that because of the way the instrument plays, the way is to be scraped using a coin. The motion produces sound ‘rek-rek rek’ because there are strokes that were made along the bamboo strips. The musical instrument yet has a name. Anyone have a suggestion for the name of the instrument?

=======================Kesahajaan dalam Pemberian Nama======================

Hari kedua festival seni tradisi di Kaliurang 28 – 29 Januari 2012. Dari 35 Desa Wisata yang di undang untuk tampil dalam festival tersebut, hanya diikuti 12 desa wisata. Sebanyak 8 desa wisata telah tampil pada hari pertama.

Pada hari kedua tampil 4 desa wisata, masing-masing adalah Desa Wisata Tanjung dengan kesenian ‘Pek Bung’, Desa Wisata Rumah Domes dengan kesenian ‘Ronda Tek-Tek’, Desa Wisata Kelor dengan kesenian ‘Klenthingan’ dan terakhir Desa Wisata Jethak 2 dengan kesenian ‘Gejog Lesung’.
Alat musik yang ditampilkan kebanyakan merupakan alat musik perkusi. Namanya juga desa, pemberian nama tidak dilakukan dengan pemikiran yang rumit, apalagi sampai membuat kening berkerut.

‘Pek Bung’ diangkat dari suara pek (kentongan bambu kecil) dan bung (gentong yang ditutup karet ban). ‘Ronda Tek Tek’ berasal dari suara tek-tek (bilah bambu yang beradu) dan biasa dimainkan saat melakukan ronda kampung.

Pemberian nama kesenian  juga dilakukan dengan menyebut nama alat yang digunakan. Ada kesenian ‘Klenthingan’ karena menggunakan klenthing (alat untuk menampung air dari tanah liat). Ada pula kesenian ‘Gejog Lesung’ karena menggunakan lesung (bilah kayu yang dicowak untuk menumbuk padi).Beberapa nama kesenian tersebut menyiratkan bahwa kesederhanaan senantiasa terpelihara di lingkungan desa (wisata) – tak terkecuali dalam memberi nama kesenian.

Seusai penampilan ‘Klenthingan’ dari desa wisata Kelor, ada yang menarik perhatian pembawa acara. Dengan menunjukkan pada penonton mengenai alat tersebut, dikatakan bahwa alat itu selalu saja masuk angin ketika dimainkan. Dikatakan begitu karena cara memainkan alat tersebut adalah dengan dikerok menggunakan koin. Bunyi yang dihasilkan adalah rek-rek rek karena ada guratan yang dibuat disepanjang potongan bambu tersebut. Alat musik tersebut belum memiliki nama. Ada yang punya usul untuk memberi nama alat tersebut?
