Mad Buffalo



These masked characters are the performers of Seni Helaran Kebo Ngamuk (lit. mad buffalo perfomance art) from the Indramayu regency in the northeastern coast of the Province of West Java (of which Bandung is the capital city).

Kebo Ngamuk performance consists of several acrobatic attractions with a mock-up mad buffalo as the central figure and a number of masked performers like these fighting with the buffalo. The performance is accompanied with dymanic music that is typical of the northern cost of West Java region.
