The goal of this article is to investigate manapa or batajau in an event to renew social bonds through the performativity of gandang tasa in the Pariaman community. Manapa (a regular social gathering with a performance) is an example of local wisdom that is implemented in a traditional manner with an aesthetical packaging. As a regular social gathering with a performance, manapa gandang tasa is used to establish and renew social bonds between gandang tasa groups from different nagari (villages) in the Pariaman community. In manapa, gandang tasa groups take turns to visit each other and perform a number of their own special pieces as well as other pieces that the groups can play together. The study uses a qualitative method with emphasis on detailed observation of a manapa event. An interpretative analysis is used to reveal the concept of manapa as a formula that can act as a social bond between the Pariaman community. Through an emic approach, the research results show that the performance of gandang tasa in the context of manapa can build unity and togetherness.
