Wohoo, it’s time to Minang’s show. We already prepared our performance one week before the show. We practiced almost every day and got exhausted most time. Nevertheless, we were so happy doing this! :) We chose to exercise Indang dance from Minang. It actually needed some tambourines as the instrument. Since the quantity of tambourines was not enough, we decided not to use them. We also sang Kampuang Nan Jauh Di Mato. Besides singing and dancing, we prepared our drama too. It was about the origin name of Minangkabau. You can enjoy the drama storyline below. However, one thing that you should be bolded and underlined is this drama isn’t purposely for education, but only for entertainment. Because it was made by the colonialist to divisive one region to another, the story couldn’t be trusted for real. The truth is that Majapahit and Pagaruyung (two opposite kingdom in this story) were a brotherhood kingdom. So, here they are our performances!
|The representative felt suspisious a little bit and confused because he who intended to attack Pagaruyung was being served well. However, he still enjoyed the food from Pagaruyung.|
|Datuk Tuo thought hard how Paguruyung could win this match from Majapahit. He had a brilliant idea. He chose a calf that was still being breastfeeding by its mother. Then, he put a little knife on its head.|
|On the other hand, the Majapahit's representative chose a big and healthy buffalo. He swaggered himself that he would win this match after seeing Paguruyung's small buffalo.|
|At the end, the big buffalo was dead.|
Kampuang Nan Jauh Di Mato song. A little bit hard to memorize the lyric hehehe :p
