Know the features of the West Java region to get to know it better

Without a doubt, there are certain features of the West Java region  that  you must be aware  of  in order to get to know this one province more closely. As we know, West Java is one of the provinces that attracts the attention of many people where the capital Bandung is a tourist destination for different types of people.

Without a doubt, there are some interesting things in this province that make a lot of people focus on holidaying at this place. For  those of you who want to know more about this place, you should know about some of the features that are owned where each region of Indonesia has different characteristics.

By knowing these features, you can get to know this area more deeply. In addition to knowing its features, you can know that all the regions of Indonesia are very unique. These  are some of the features of the West Java region that you should know  where to distinguish this province from others.

Undoubtedly, this feature is known not only by the outside community, but also by the indigenous peoples of West Java. In addition, there are many districts in this province that have their own uniqueness. So it is a pity that as an Indonesian citizen you  do  not know the uniqueness of every region.

In addition , the characteristics of West Java are not only in the context of culture, but also in the form of a kitchen. With this kind of information, you can find that Indonesia is very rich in culture and cuisine.

But what is very unfortunate is that many young people know nothing about Indonesia, even about the region where they live alone. If this situation is not controlled, the younger generation may have to lose their love for their country.

Daily use of regional languages

A feature of the West Java region is its use of regional language in daily life, as we know that There are many tribes in Indonesia so there are  many regional languages as well  . So it is no surprise that even though it is an island, the regional languages are many and different.

For West Java itself, it also has a specific regional language, named the Sundaney language. Undoubtedly, the vocabulary of Sunandanis is different from other languages, so it is easy to distinguish between them. Apart from this, this language is also used in everyday life in addition to Indonesia.

Therefore the use of this language is not only limited by the Sundani tribe but is used by all the peoples of West Java. Because the use of this language is very important to support daily activities.

Therefore, because the language  is one of the characteristics of the West Java region, when you are in a crowd and use the Sundani language, the fellow tribes will surely know that you came from West Java by communicating only using that language.

So it’s no surprise that getting to know someone is from a region, to look at the language that is used daily. Although there are currently many people who use Indonesia, regional languages are still used so that it exists and does not fade away over time.

Because if the local language is omitted, it is very unfortunate for the coming generations that they do not know the mother tongue of their tribe. In fact, it is the use of language that separates one tribe from another.

Features included in musical instruments

Another feature of the West Java region that  you can see  is in the musical instruments section. Of course, each region has its own musical instrument that can be the identity of that region, as well as Western Java . For this region, surely everyone knows one of its common musical instruments, namely angklang. The angklung itself is a traditional musical instrument made of bamboo.

In fact,  many schools, including elementary schools in West Java, should provide this traditional musical instrument. In addition, playing it is also different from modern musical instruments like now, as shaking it will produce some sounds. In fact, the popularity of the musical instrument is well known internationally.

In addition to angklang, there are also flute musical instruments that have  been incorporated into the features of West Java. When viewed from the material, it is almost identical to angklang, which is made of bamboo. But what sets it apart can be seen from its shape where the distilled is made of only 1 bamboo. Where there are also holes in this musical instrument that later serve to set the tone.

Of course, the number of holes in this instrument also depends on where it is arranged and how many songs will be accompanied. However, in general, there are only 4 distilled holes. This musical instrument is so unique that there should be this flute along with the songs of Sundani. In fact, it is not uncommon when someone is in a rice field and entertains himself that he will play the flute.

Characteristics of the food section

It cannot be denied that  the characteristics of West Java are also reflected in the food, there are many features that exist and also exist outside the West Java region. This condition shows that there are many people who like the traditional food of the province. Call it like Batagore or Siome which is a typical West Java snack  that can be easily found in the outskirts.

The food contains fish meat and is wrapped with spring roll skin and tofu and a peanut seasoning is given. In addition to streetfood food, there are also some traditional snacks such as mains’ blocks. Mains block itself is a special food made from cassava and grated coconut that does shaving work. This snack itselfenvises two types, namely cadaver beam andMNs block.

In addition, there are also onkam rice which are very popular and are even included in  a specialty of  West Java  that comes from Tasikamlia. Onkam rice in itself is rice that has been mixed by Oncom which has been grilled or fried. During the mixing process, it is not only stirred but also waited so that it can be mixed evenly between oncom and rice.

In addition, there are also snacks such as green cerabi which is a typical caravan food. Of course this serbi is different from the others as the manufacturing process is almost the same but it has extra semolina leaves to make the colour greener. Of course, these leaves are used to avoid the use of food color so that it is safe when consumed.

Features of traditional dance

The features of  West Java  are also reflected in the traditional dance section where there are many of them. One of the traditional dances originating from this region of West Java is the name Syreban. This is a mock dance. Where this art has a meaning, i.e. the story of the Sunan Gunang caste when you want to control the city of Sireban. But at that time an attack was carried out by the prince of Velang so that a war eventually took place.

There are 13 colours of use of masks in this dance where different features and colors of each type are used. However, recently, many people have used only red and white colours and the use of masks is also in line with the theme of the event being organised. Apart from mask dance, peacock dance is also danced inspired by peacocks.

The peacock itself is a symbol of the crown so that the dancers can use the crown while performing the work. Along with this dance, gamelan music will be given which will be played by three people. Of course this dance has been very popular in foreign countries as well. Apart from the above dance there is also the Japong dance which is already very popular.

However, this dance once used to use controversies as these movements are quite sensitive but only recently they have started to be preserved again. Therefore, these are some of the characteristics thatthis one province has.  I was not surprised to know the characteristics of West Java that he could help keep it safe so that future generations would know about the regional cultural customs  or  the   characteristics of West Java are not lost in time.
