Rejang Asak at Manis Kuningan Day



If you want to see hundreds of girls dance around the villages in their best attire then you have to visit the village of Asak in Karangasem Regency on Manis Kuningan Day. Once every 210 day, a unique ritual is held in this village. Hundreds of Rejang dancers in their Payas Agung (grand attire) dance around the village (ngelawang), while dancing, they sing a prayer for the prosperity of the village. All the dancers are teenage girl or girls that have not married yet. They ceased to become dancers when they get married.

The dancers dance around the village in file formation. The senior dancers dance in the front while the junior dancers dance on the back imitating the senior’s movements. The dancers are linked each to each by sash; a dancer holds the sash that is worn by the dancer in front of her.
