Jegog instruments were created in Negara in 1912. They became very popular among local people to celebrate the harvest time. Today Jegog are used during wedding ceremonies and Saturday night’s informal meetings among village people. The instruments are made of bamboo of various sizes, which gives high to low vibrations. Jegog music is performed regularly at Dajuma during evening dinners on the grass. Dancers will come and perform traditional dances. After the show people are invited to play on the instruments. All musicians come from the nearby villages where they are occupied during the day with other activities such as farming. A great moment to share with them, for all and especially families.
