sejarah tari topeng orang

Tari topeng adalah salah satu tarian tradisional yang ada di Cirebon. Tari ini dinamakan tari topeng karena 
ketika beraksi sang penari memakai topeng. Konon pada awalnya, Tari Topeng diciptakan oleh sultan Cirebon yang cukup terkenal, yaitu Sunan Gunung Jati. Ketika Sunan Gunung Jati berkuasa di Cirebon, terjadilah serangan oleh Pangeran Welang dari Karawang. Pangeran ini sangat sakti karena memiliki pedang yang diberi nama Curug Sewu. Melihat kesaktian sang pangeran tersebut, Sunan Gunung Jati tidak bisa menandinginya walaupun telah dibantu oleh Sunan Kalijaga dan Pangeran Cakrabuana. Akhirnya sultan Cirebon memutuskan untuk melawan kesaktian Pangeran Welang itu dengan cara diplomasi kesenian.
Berawal dari keputusan itulah kemudian terbentuk kelompok tari, dengan Nyi Mas Gandasari sebagai penarinya. Setelah kesenian itu terkenal, akhirnya Pangeran Welang jatuh cinta pada penari itu, dan menyerahkan pedang Curug Sewu itu sebagai pertanda cintanya. Bersamaan dengan penyerahan pedang itulah, akhirnya Pangeran Welang kehilangan kesaktiannya dan kemudian menyerah pada Sunan Gunung Jati. Pangeran itupun berjanji akan menjadi pengikut setia Sunan Gunung Jati yang ditandai dengan bergantinya nama Pangeran Welang menjadi Pangeran Graksan. Seiring dengan berjalannya waktu, tarian inipun kemudian lebih dikenal dengan nama Tari Topeng dan masih berkembang hingga sekarang.
Dalam tarian ini biasanya sang penari berganti topeng hingga tiga kali secara simultan, yaitu topeng warna putih, kemudian biru dan ditutup dengan topeng warna merah. Uniknya, tiap warna topeng yang dikenakan, gamelan yang ditabuh pun semakin keras sebagai perlambang dari karakter tokoh yang diperankan. Tarian ini diawali dengan formasi membungkuk, formasi ini melambangkan penghormatan kepada penonton dan sekaligus pertanda bahwa tarian akan dimulai. Setelah itu, kaki para penari digerakkan melangkah maju-mundur yang diiringi dengan rentangan tangan dan senyuman kepada para penontonnya. Gerakan ini kemudian dilanjutkan dengan membelakangi penonton dengan menggoyangkan pinggulnya sambil memakai topeng berwarna putih, topeng ini menyimbolkan bahwa pertunjukan pendahuluan sudah dimulai. Setelah berputar-putar menggerakkan tubuhnya, kemudian para penari itu berbalik arah membelakangi para penonton sambil mengganti topeng yang berwarna putih itu dengan topeng berwarna biru. Proses serupa juga dilakukan ketika penari berganti topeng yang berwarna merah. Uniknya, seiring dengan pergantian topeng itu, alunan musik yang mengiringinya maupun gerakan sang penari juga semakin keras. Puncak alunan musik paling keras terjadi ketika topeng warna merah dipakai para penari.
Seperti yang saya sebutkan diatas, masing-masing warna topeng yang dikenakan mewakili karakter tokoh yang dimainkan, sebut saja misalnya warna putih. Warna ini melambangkan tokoh yang punya karakter lembut dan alim. Sedangkan topeng warna biru, warna itu menggambarkan karakter sang ratu yang lincah dan anggun. Kemudian yang terakhir, warna merah menggambarkan karakter yang berangasan (tempramental) dan tidak sabaran. Dan busana yang dikenakan penari sendiri adalah biasanya selalu memiliki unsur warna kuning, hijau dan merah yang terdiri dari toka-toka, apok, kebaya, sinjang, dan ampreng.
Jika anda berminat untuk menyaksikan tarian yang dimainkan oleh satu atau beberapa orang penari cantik, seorang sinden, dan sepuluh orang laki-laki yang memainkan alat musik pengiring, di antaranya rebab, kecrek, kulanter, ketuk, gendang, gong, dan bendhe ini, silahkan datang saja ke Cirebon. Tarian ini biasanya akan dipentaskan ketika ada acara-acara kepemerintahan, hajatan sunatan, perkawinan maupun acara-acara rakyat lainnya.

Mengenal Sejarah Samurai Jepang

Hari ini aku pengen banget bahas tentang apa si Samurai? Gimana sih kerennya Samurai. yaah silahkan dibaca.

kalo menurut Wikipedia Samurai ( atau ?) adalah istilah untuk perwira militer kelas elit sebelum zaman industrialisasi di Jepang. Kata "samurai" berasal dari kata kerja "samorau" asal bahasa Jepang kuno, berubah menjadi "saburau" yang berarti "melayani", dan akhirnya menjadi "samurai" yang bekerja sebagai pelayan bagi sang majikan.
Istilah yang lebih tepat adalah bushi (武士) (harafiah: "orang bersenjata") yang digunakan semasa zaman Edo. Bagaimanapun, istilah samurai digunakan untuk prajurit elit dari kalangan bangsawan, dan bukan contohnya, ashigaru atau tentara berjalan kaki. Samurai yang tidak terikat dengan klan atau bekerja untuk majikan (daimyo) disebut ronin (harafiah: "orang ombak"). Samurai yang bertugas di wilayah han disebut hanshi.
Samurai harus sopan dan terpelajar, dan semasa Keshogunan Tokugawa berangsur-angsur kehilangan fungsi ketentaraan mereka. Pada akhir era Tokugawa, samurai secara umumnya adalah kakitangan umum bagi daimyo, dengan pedang mereka hanya untuk tujuan istiadat. Dengan reformasi Meiji pada akhir abad ke-19, samurai dihapuskan sebagai kelas berbeda dan digantikan dengan tentara nasional menyerupai negara Barat. Bagaimanapun juga, sifat samurai yang ketat yang dikenal sebagai bushido masih tetap ada dalam masyarakat Jepang masa kini, sebagaimana aspek cara hidup mereka yang lain.

yang aku tau tentang cerita dari Junna-san cewe pertukaran mahasiswa asing di FIB UNDIP. Dia cerita kalo penggambaran samurai itu sudah cukup jelas di film The Last Samurai. dah pernah nonton belum? bagus lho! hehe
Pada masa Edo, warga/masayarakat jepang sudah menerapkan kasta-kasta. Urutan kasta pada masa Edo adalah samurai, petani, tukang, dan pedagang, yang dalam ringkasan berbahasa Jepang dikenal sebagai shi nou kou shou, yaitu shi dari kata bushi (samurai), nou dari kata noumin (petani), kou dari kata kounin atau shokunin dan terakhir shou dari kata shounin (pedagang).Petani menempati urutan kelas dua setelah para samurai, karena pada masa Edo, beras adalah makanan vital yang dengannya para petani menjadi orang kaya dibandingkan kasta lain. Semua kasta tergantung kepada mereka dengan produksi berasnya. Mereka dihargai para daimyo dan samurai karena produksi berasnya.

Di jepang para samurai bisa disebut juga sebagai Pahlawannya. Tapi perlu temen-temen tahu, kalo Bushi di Jepang sekarang sudah ga ada.

Samurai identik banget sama Harakiri. Junna-san temen aku juga ngeri denger kata ini.
Harakiri bagi Para Samurai itu adalah Bunuh diri dengan cara menusuk dada atau perutnya lalu pedanngya di puter, trus pedangnya diarahin kebawah, kanan dan atas lagi, sampe usus keluar dan isi-isinya. hmm ngeri juga ya?
tau ga kenapa orang-orang samurai ini berani gini? Para Samurai itu sangat mengabdi pada budaya dan negaranya, apabila mereka kalah, mereka siap mati. daripada hidup menanggung malu, lebih baik mati untuk negaranya, daripada hidup diselimuti rasa malu. Pemimin yang gagal dia juga bersedia di penggal kepalanya oleh orang yang dia pilih. Dan orang yang dipilih itu adalah suatu kehormatan, karena dipilih untuk memenggal kepala sang samurai itu.
