Yosakoi in cultural fest

Today i went to cultural festival in bungkul garden near my place.
it was a nice event ^^ .

have you ever see a yosakoi dance ?

and do you know that yosakoi means ” please come at night” 8D

this is the stage where the MC is talking , some of the photographer is going up to the stage for taking photos.
i thought it was prohibited to go up >.< , so i didn’t go there .

oh yeah , you can see in the banner , there is remo dance too in the festival .
actually remo dance is a traditional dance from indonesia , i didn’t have the chance to take a photo for that dance . T.T

it was really crowded , i think there is more than 2000 people in that place ~~~ .
it really hard to find some seat to sit there , but because i become a photographer , i can go to a place where a normal person can’t go ^^.
thats what is good about becoming photographer ~~~~~

does anybody go to that place also ? i mean went to bungkul garden ?
i saw some of my friends there 8D . and some of my friends also becoming a participant in that event .
last year i almost join in becoming a participant , but because of the schedule , i can’t join . T.T

this photo is one of the photos that i like , i like how they move and make the shadow >.<

that photo in the left , don’t you wonder how old is that boy ? i think he is the most youngest participant who joins in that event .
and the best cloths if i have to choose may be that right one ^^, it is so colorful , and it matches with the background .

Even japanese also participating in that event , i think she( the middle one in the picture) is not participating in the competition .
but when i saw the dance , i saw some group from a japan community in my town also joining in the event ^^

you can find more picture in my flickr

oh yeah , if you still don’t know what yosakoi is ? you should watch this video ~~

i’m sorry i can’t find better video in youtube >.< .
