Pariaman is a coastal city in West Sumatra, Indonesia. The popular annual festival of Tabuik is celebrated by people in this city every 10 Muharram of Islamic calendar (the Day of Ashura – please check the website as the exact date changes every year). In the festival, two such beautifully-decorated effigies or “Tabuik” are carried through the city. Named Tabuik Pasa and Tabuik Subarang, the effigies are swayed accompanied by 12 tasa kettledrums beaten in a spirit-rousing rhythm. In the afternoon, both Tabuik are moved to the coast and lowered into the sea before sunset. After they are thrown into the sea, many people go swimming looking for ‘memories’ of the Tabuik to keep. This festival has become important tourism agenda, endorsed by Pariaman city government every year.
