One of many unique art performances that can be found in Buleleng is Rengganis. Rengganis is similar to acapella in Western country but Rengganis is not imitation of musical instruments but rather imitation of various frogs’ sounds. The word “rengganis” means “symphony of silence”. The song of Rengganis was created in the style of Dangdang Gula hymn.


The creator of Rengganis, Gusti Made Alit got his inspiration when he guarded the rice in the rice field after a harvest; he heard the sounds of various kinds of frogs like a melody in a silent night. The beauty of this melody inspired him to create the Rengganis.

Rengganis is a social art performance; it is performed to entertain guests in a ceremony or to enliven the atmosphere when drinking tuak.
