<<< Welcome to Angklung Web Institute (AWI)! This website is a medium of information exchange about angklung knowledge and competence, especially diatonic angklung in orchestral composition. The Father of Angklung Daeng Sutigna first created the diatonic angklung in 1938. Until now, angklung still has to face many challenges of identity to be acknowledged as one of world’s standard music instruments. One major problem is that there is no firm standard yet in constructing, tuning, forming, playing, and compositing angklung. Another problem is that until today, an angklung music community as a media of education and industrialization of the angklung music hasn’t been founded yet. Through this website we would like to ask you who have a great concern to the development of angklung to pass this piece of information to the world in order to support this developing music instrument. Through this website we would like to convey an angklung-ical activity to an angklung team or community and hopefully someday the industrialization of angklung can be realized. Last, it is our duty to raise our angklung to be appreciated just like the other world’s standard music instruments. Thank you.          <<< Welcome to Angklung Web Institute (AWI)!

MENSYUKURI BERKAT DENGAN SEREN TAUN (Liputan6.com, 25 Maret 2001) Print E-mail
Written by Budi Supardiman   
Sunday, 25 March 2001
Liputan6.com, Cigunjur: Banyak cara menyampaikan syukur kepada Tuhan Yang Maha Esa. Masyarakat di Desa Cigugur, Kabupaten Kuningan, Jawa Barat, menunjukkan rasa terima kasih atas hasil bumi yang Tuhan berikan dalam upacara Seren Taun.

Sebelum tiba pada acara puncak, warga, tak peduli laki atau perempuan mulai sibuk. Ada yang mempersiapkan lesung lengkap dengan hiasan. Banyak juga yang mulai menyusun dan merangkai sesaji. Ada yang kebagian membuat janur. Semua rela repot menyambut hajatan yang menurut almanak Sunda Wiwitan, jatuh tepat pada hari ke-22 bulan KNA. Pada Bulan Perayaan Agung itu, semua warga mengembalikan kebahagiaan yang diberikan Sang Jabaning Langit, Tuhan Yang Maha Kuasa dalam upacara syukur.

Kabut musim penghujan masih lekat menyelimuti kaki Gunung Ciremai. Namun, di tengah dinginnya selimut kabut, masyarakat tampak giat berbenah. Sebab, acara tradisional itu melibatkan ratusan warga ditambah undangan dan tamu dari luar daerah. Mereka ingin berterima kasih atas berkah kesuburan pada tanah pertanian.

Kesibukan mengental di pusat desa. Sebuah tempat yang disebut Paseban telah disiapkan di sana. Puluhan lesung berjejer siap dipakai untuk menumbuk beras. Acara dibuka dengan tarian. Setelah itu, sesepuh desa, Djatikusumah akan menjelaskan satu demi satu makna upacara itu.

Kemeriahan semakin lengkap ketika warga Desa Kanekes atau yang lebih dikenal sebagai warga Badui ikut menghangatkan acara tadi. Ratusan kilometer jarak dari desa mereka ke Cigugur bukanlah halangan. Rasa persaudaraan antardesa lebih penting. Bahkan, mereka sengaja membawa angklung pusaka yang tidak akan dimainkan jika tak ada acara istimewa.

Lalu, ketika iring-iringan pembawa padi sampai di Paseban, mereka pun segera meletakkannya di lesung yang ada. Sedangkan padi-padian yang dibawa peserta prosesi segera diterima pamong desa untuk disimpan di lumbung setempat. Sesepuh desa pun segera memanjatkan doa pada Yang Kuasa dan inti acara: tumbuk padi pun dimulai. Acara diawali para tokoh masyarakat dan dilanjutkan oleh warga yang ada di Paseban.

Acara itu sarat makna. Arti kegotong-royongan, ungkapan rasa syukur, dan yang utama makna saling mengasihi sesama. Karena anugerah Sang Pengasih itu, kelak bakal diserahkan kepada mereka yang kekurangan.

Kegembiraan itu pun lengkap sudah ketika hidangan yang telah disiapkan disantap bersama. Siapa pun bisa menikmatinya sepuas mereka. Rasa syukur menyeruak kala tak seorang pun yang dihinggapi rasa lapar. Jika ungkapan itu keluar berarti hajatan telah terselenggara tuntas. Dan ketika hari esok kembali menjelang, ada harapan baru yang menyertai harapan akan kesuburan pada Ibu Pertiwi. Mereka juga menggantung asa untuk kehidupan yang lebih baik. Akhirnya, ada kesempatan untuk kembali mensyukuri nikmat yang telah diberikan.(TNA/Tim Potret)
