today i want to tell you about one of my school's event. it is Gamarvani, Gamarvani is a culture festival in Bandung. the name Gamarvani was taken from 'gama' means journey and 'parvani' means moon, so, gamarvani means a journey to moon. it was taken from a folktale in Indonesia, called 'nyai anteh'. Gamarvani was purpose to tell the teenager about the culture in Bandung.
gamarvani was held on september 19th, 2015. gamarvani was organized by SMAN 3 bandung's student. the ticket prize was Rp. 40.000,- until Rp. 50.000,-. it started at 10am. but, before the gate's opened, there was a parade.
At 10am, the gate opened, there were 15 foodstands, 12 foodtrucks, traditional foods, and community stands. although it was still 10 am, it was very hot. but fortunately, there were so many drinks that sold there, so i could bought some cold drink, as opening there were performance from some cultural communities. like traditional dance, traditional martial arts, and traditional music. the visitors began to come at 12 pm.
at 1 pm, i went out from gamarvani because i had another assigment to do.
at about 4 pm, i came back to gamarvani because my another assigment has done. at that time there were performance from MK (classical Music), and TsT (tiloe's theater) it was so wonderful. TsT performed a story from Nyai Anteh, that become theme of gamarvani.
at Gamarvani, i met my friends from Junior High School, i was so happy, we talked about our daily life in our new school, and of course, we took some pictures there.
back to gamarvani, at 6 pm, the atmosphere was very crowded, i never thought that it could be this crowded. i was amazed by the atmosphere. especialy in front of the stage, so many people stood there, and the committee started increasing the securities, why? because.. we.. waited.. for.. the main performance.
and a few minutes later, the peoples started to crowd, because the main performance has began.
it began with ADERA, he sang some songs, he played guitar too. it was amazing.
but, not too long after that, i felt pain on my foot, it might because i stood for long time, so, i thought that i had to went home, so, i went home at 8 pm.
i couldnt continioud to enjoy the show, but my friend told me that the performance after adera was more crowded, it was HiVi! i wish i could be there too, but, if i stayed for more time that night, i think i couldnt do the activity on Sunday.
that's all that i can tell you guys.
