The world "LUDRUK" East Java are  grieve, because one of the maestro buffoonery, musician, composer of music "GAMELAN" has gone for good.

Bambang Supali or often accosted Cak Alex Supali (Cak is calls people East Java which means elder brother) had died at the age of 49 years due to sick liver and kidney failure.

"LUDRUK" no longer able to show themselves more open. "LUDRUK" compete with the more glamorous entertainment media and populist and any time we can see through the medium of television.

Supali can be compared with others maestro ludruk more like Cak Kartolo, Cak Agus Kuprit, Ning Umi Kulsum and other centres (Ning is a term people in East Java which means sister). Different from his senior, Supali not strives through recordings or television commercial, but Supali to spread the word the "LUDRUK" with strong through stage "LUDRUK TOBONG" (a term to describe tobong, each performance LUDRUK location surrounded by a fence made of zinc and the spectators have to pay the entrance ticket to be able to enjoy it) by door to door.

Supali was not only as a player "LUDRUK", but experts make an audience laugh that particular stop. Supali was a musician and music composer who is reliable. Not less than 50 "CAMPURSARI" song (the name of the type of music which is a combination of "GAMELAN" with modern instruments) and "GAMELAN" concert for "LUDRUK" he had tried to create. One of his most monumental and is always known by the Javanese community is "SAMBEL KEMANGI" (the title "CAMPURSARI" song which means chili sauce  and Basil)

Supali has given the gift of laughter and smiles, forget the passion even though for a moment. His departure was not only left a profound sadness for the people a lover of LUDRUK, but became hole concerns in East Java for the development LUDRUK of forward . May his the spirit of struggle and militancy in the world  LUDRUK in East Java can be appreciated in more deeply, placing his name as "prominent warriors Ludruk", a role model for the younger generation milestone today and the future.
