Rampak Bedug Banten
Rampak Beduk is one of the traditional dances from Banten Province. It is played by ten people consisting five men and five women. The name “Rampak Bedug” itself was taken from the word “rampak” means “unison” and “bedug” means ‘drum’. So, Rampak Bedug is the art of combining the dance and the sound of drums in unison to produce the typical attractive rhythm. In the beginning, Rampak Bedug dance was only performed at Takbiran night before Eid day. But now, it has evolved as a professional art to enliven celebrations such as weddings, circumcisions, and national memorial days.
Debus is a martial art from Banten demonstrating proof of invulnerability (‘kekebalan’). In this context, ‘kekebalan’ means that a person is invulnerable if he suffers no injuries when he stabs himself or is being stabbed by another during the performance. The art of Debus originally developed during the reign of Sultan Ageng Tirtajasa (1651-1682) of Banten for the purpose of boosting the morale of the Banten soldiers fighting against the VOC (Dutch East India Company). However, the practice of Debus is still very much alive among the local population both in some rural areas and in some cities in Banten, such as in the District of Lebak and Pandeglang and also in Cilegon and Serang City.
