Minang Folk Song

MinangTWO weeks ago I spent all days long in music store Disc Tara at Plaza Bintaro. I sweft the discs and cassettes shelves and I considered there were no a “good music” I should buy. When I saw a shelf consist with folk song of Indonesia, my eyes was stubbed by one disc, a yellow one. I picked it up and I read the album “Minang”. There are several songs, maybe 16 folk song of Minang, who sung by four singers, especially Elly kasim, a legendary female Minang singers.

Why do I interest in Minang folk song? You know, Minang is one of a thousand tribes in aur country. They lives in Padang (or Minangkabau) at West Sumatra. This mountaineous region is so beatiful, especially Padang Panjang where Jam Gadang lied. I have several times visited this remarkable region for covering a news.  The question is: whey do I interest ini Minang?

First, I have listened the Minang’s song when I wacthed film “Malin Kuindang” in 1976, a long long time ago. Malin Kundang is a folk tale from this region. There were several themes song for this film. When I heard Minang song, this Malin Kundang reminded me to the past. Second, when I was in university, I have a best friend from Padang. She is a sweety girls, name Elfina. I didn’t know where she is live now. May be she is a dentist now! (Hi Elfina, how are you today?). I learned a few word of Minang such as basobok balik and laruik sanjo.

Here I have Minang’s folk song lyrics which I took from http://laguminanglamo.wordpress.com. Thank to this great sites. This give a me a chance to introduce this lyrics to all over the world, include all of you!

AYAM DEN LAPEH

(Abd Hamid)

Luruihlah jalan Payakumbuah
Babelok jalan Kayu Jati

Mandaki jalan Pandaisikek

Di ma ati indak kamaupek
Awak takicuah ai ai… ayam den lapeh

Sikucapang sikucapeh
Saikua tabang saikua lapeh
Tabanglah juo nan karimbo
Oilah malang juo

Pagaruyuang Batusangka
Tampek bajalan urang baso
Duduak tamanuang tiok sabanta
Oi takana juo ai ai… ayam den lapeh

Den sangko lamang nasi tuai
Kironyo tatumpah kuah gulai
Awak ka pasa alah usai
Oi lah malang denai

O hoi … ayam den lapeh

LARUIK SANJO

(Asbon M)

Mandi kalubuak mandalian
Udang disangko tali-tali
Mabuak untuang jo parasaian
Patang disangko pagi hari

Ondeh…Ondeh, Lah laruik sanjo

Lai den timbo banda Padang
Biluluak juo nan tatimbo
Lai den cubo nan bak urang
Nan buruak juo nan tasuo

Ondeh…Ondeh, Lah laruik sanjo

Urang Padang mandi ka gurun
Mandi basiram bungo lado
Hari patang matoari turun
Dagang baurai aia mato

Ondeh…Ondeh, Lah laruik sanjo

LANGKISAU

(Nuskan Syarif)

Langkisau bukik langkisau

Ndeh, oh badabua ombak maampeh
Batu kureta mamanciang ikan
Jikok lai mujua bundo malapeh
Bak ayam pulang ka pautan

Ka diambiak lah ka kayu api
Rilah-rilah lah bundo malapeh
Untuang salamaik pulang jo pai

Langkisau … Langkisau … Langkisau …

BAREH SOLOK

(Nuskan Syarief)

Bareh Solok tanak didandang
Dipagatok ulam pario

Bareh solok bareh tanamo
Bareh solok lamak rasonyo

KAMPUNG NAN JAUH DI MATO

(Westem/Asbon)

Kampuang nan jauah di mato

Sakik sanang samo-samo diraso
Den takana jo kampuang

Takana jo kampuang
Induak, ayah, adiak sadonyo
Raso maimbau imbau denai pulang
Den takana jo kampuang

LINTUAH

(Ibenzani Usman)

Rang mudo rang mudo nak Pagaruyuang
Tingganyo nan jauah diateh bukik
Batutua kato pantang manyingguang
Tagah dek suratannyo nan paik

Oi gadih oi gadih urang Sungayang
Basonyo katuju nan elok budi
Pandai sirek jo tatiang manatiang
Nan pandai mamikek jantuang hati

Lintuah hati den lintuah lah lintuah – 2x

Oi sanak sudaro saparinduan

Patenggangkan juo, patenggangkan

Lintuah hati den lintuah lah lintuah – 2x

JASO MANDE

(Nuskan Syarief)

Sambilan bulan sapuluah hari
Manangguang baban saba mananti
Manyabuang nyao basarah diri
Darah tatumpah manyiram bumi
Jolong tadanga rengek jo tangih
Barubek jariah sananglah hati

Anggak kan ameh babungkah-bungkah
Anggak kan pitih indak tabilang
Kok hati mandeh nan dilukoi
Bumi manyumpah ‘Arasy baguncang
Alamaik iduik ndak ka salasai

Jaso mandeh indak ka tabaleh
Bia babungkah perak jo ameh
Jaso mandeh indak ka tabaleh
Bia babungkah perak jo ameh

Badan takana nan jo untuangnyo
Bukannyo riang … (kanduang)
Badan takana nan jo untuangnyo

Kubang Sirakuak ka Kayu Aro (kanduang)
