Kompang Jawa - Sabak Bernam, Selangor
Kompang Jawa encompasses two forms of kompang (frame drum) traditions – Kompang Terontong and Kompang Hadaro. Disctinct from other forms of kompang, the Kompang Terontong is a melodic kompang tradition using kompangs of various sizes mirroring the Javanese gamelan instrumentation. The Kompang Hadaro tradition features livelier rhythms, played by the younger performers. The Kompang Jawa tradition was brought to the Malay Peninsula by Javanese traders since the early 1900s. It is traditionally performed at mosques and madrasahs during ceremonies to mark the completion of Quranic studies, circumcision, and weddings. Kompang Jawa is accompanied by soaring devotional singing, selawat, based on verses of the Kitab Barzanji, Among the most common selawat are‘Assolatu’, ‘Bissari’, ‘Ya-Solatun’, ‘Sailillah’ dan rangkap-rangkap lain dari Kitab Berzanji. Kompang Jawa traces its roots to the legends of the Wali Songo (Nine Saints) Java. The Wali Songo are said to have used local musical forms as they spread the teachings of Islam to the interiors of Java.
