Original Samba Dancer

Children is the center of life,
Where the heart of every parent lies,
All the effort and hardwork,
Are dedicated to the children.

Samba Mask Dance Of Cirebon

Children are so dynamic,
They roam the world without fear,
Nothing can stop them,
From going after what they want.

Samba Mask Dance, Childhood
They don’t pretend to be someone,
As they are what they are,

Samba Mask Dance

The presence of laughter, joy and happiness.
A gift from God for us.
[Cirebon 2014]

Samba: The Childhood Mask Dance Of Cirebon


Swara Maharddhika - Iksa Menajang

When you practice

Dance and performance

For so many years

Under strict conditions

The result is

A good show for the public.

And the dance will be one

With your muscles

Deep in the brain



You can perform.

As we all know

Give them our love

So they will learn about love.

Our children taking care now

And their children will be when the time comes.

Wandering King

Looking for fulfilness

Up the hills

Down the streams

Wandering the plains

And high in the clouds

Amongst the wind

He may find the answer.

When the time comes

Two decides to become one

A marriage is set


For the bride and groom to be

For the families

Willingness to accept


Keeping with best practices

Harmony with society

And most important

Blessings From God
