Yogyakarta Taman Sari Photography
They never refused to give me 30 seconds of their private life. I'm talking about a lot of friendly people who posed for me. Now I visited Taman Sari in Yogyakarta. It's build in 1757 by Sultan Hamengku Buwono.

The style of the building is a mixture of Javanese and Portuguese architecture. At the east gate of the park stands two dragon statues marked 1682 and this being the Year According To Calendar When the Javanese Taman Sari was built.
All visitors were impressed by the style of the building at that time. So, maybe that's why they smilingly posed for me.

Gamelan music and dance
Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Javanese, Sundanese, and Balinese in Indonesia, made up predominantly of percussive instruments.The most common instruments used are metallophones played by mallets and a set of hand-played drums called kendhang which register the beat. For most Indonesians, gamelan is an integral part of Indonesian culture.
Gamelan music and dance   Gamelan music and dance
Javanese dance and its discipline has different styles and philosophy compared to other Indonesian dance traditions.
Unlike vigorous and expressive Balinese dance or cheerful and slightly sensual Sundanese dance, Javanese dance are commonly involving slow movements and graceful poses. Javanese dance have somewhat a meditative quality and tends to be more self-reflective, introspective and more oriented toward self-understanding.
Javanese dance is usually associated with Wayang wong, and the palaces of Yogyakarta and Surakarta due to the nature of dance being a pusaka or sacred heirloom from ancestors of the palace rulers.
These expressive dances are more than just dances, they are also used for moral education, emotional expression, and spreading of the Javanese culture.

Padaung (Yan Pa Doung) is a
Shan term for the Kayan Lahwi (the group whose women wear the brass neck coils). The Kayan resident in Mae Hong Son Province in Northern Thailand refer to themselves as Kayan and object to being called Padaung. In The Hardy Padaungs (1967) Khin Maung Nyunt, one of the first authors to use the term "Kayan", says that the Padaung prefer to be called Kayan. On the other hand, Pascal Khoo Thwe calls his people Padaung in his 2002 memoir, From the Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey.

Quan ho Traditional Vietnamese folk song
More about "Quan Ho"

Quan họ singing is a Vietnamese folk music style characterized both by its antiphonal nature, with alternating groups of female and male singers issuing musical challenges and responses, and by the fact that most of the songs in the repertoire deal with topics of love and sentimentality as experienced by young adults.[1]
Quan ho Traditional Vietnamese folk song   Quan ho Traditional Vietnamese folk song
Quan ho is recognised as the Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009.[2] The quan họ style originated in what is now Bắc Ninh Province and was first recorded in the 13th century, and has traditionally been associated with the spring festivals that follow the celebration of Tết (the Vietnamese New Year). Historically, the singing began on the evening before the festival, but today it is much more common for the singing to occur on the main day of the festival.

Ca Huế Traditional Vietnamese folk song
The "Huế songs" genre, ca Huế (
歌化), or sometimes ca huế, is a form of classical Vietnamese music of Central Vietnam, particularly the Huế region. It contrasts with ca trù (歌籌) genre to the North, and the tài tử (才子) "gifted scholar" style to the South.
Ca Huế Traditional Vietnamese folk song   Ca Huế Traditional Vietnamese folk song
The singer sings solo, as in the ca trù genre, accompanying herself with small wooden clappers, sometimes similar to the phách sticks used in ca trù, sometimes shaped like small teacups. Before and between the solo songs a traditional ensemble will play instrumental sections to complement the singer. The ca huế ensemble should be of five excellent instruments, ngũ tuyệt.

Loi Krathong Thai festivals
On the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, the tide in the rivers is highest and the moon at its brightest, creating a romantic setting ideal for lovers. The Thai people choose this day to hold the 'Loy Kratong' festival, or the 'festival of light.' Loy Kratong is one of the two most recognized festivals in the country.


Loi Krathong Thai festivals   Loi Krathong Thai festivals
Loy Kratong is probably the most picturesque and beautiful of all Thai celebrations. 'Loy' literally means 'to float,' while 'kratong' refers to the lotus-shaped receptacle which can float on the water. Originally, the kratong was made of banana leaves or the layers of the trunk of a banana tree or a spider lily plant. A kratong contains food, betel nuts, flowers, joss sticks, candle and coins. The making of a kratong is much more creative these days as many more materials are available.
