Indonesian Bedug Mubarak

Indonesian Bedug Mubarak

The bedug (Javanese: bedhug) is Indonesian traditional drum. It is also used among Muslims in Java in religious purposes.

Bedug is made as a big double-barreled drum, with water buffalo leather on both sides. The bedug is suspended from a rack and played with a padded mallet. It is similar in size or larger to the largest kendang, or similar to the Japanese taiko. Its sound is generally deeper and duller than that of the kendang. Bedug commonly used in mosques in Java among Javanese and Sundanese people to:
  • Signal the adhan as a sign for prayer
  • Suhoor during Ramadan and end of the daylong fast during Ramadan
  • Takbiran on Eid Mubarak Celebration Day (a night before Eid ul-Fitr)
  • And during Islamic festivals. [source: wikipedia.org]
