Abstract

The marriage tradition of cacap-cacapan is a Malay oral tradition of tribal people that is still carried out in the city of Lubuklinggau as one of the cities in the province of South Sumatra, Indonesia, that still adheres to the cultural traditions of the ancestors. The study aims to reveal the functions of cacap-cacapan in marital customs in the city of Lubuklinggau so that cultural preservation would be maintained. The method used in this study was qualitative research with an ethnographic approach. This study investigated the functions of the oral tradition of cacap-cacapan in marital customs which is based on the social activities of the people in the city of Lubuklinggau to get a clear picture of preservation of cacap-cacapan from time to time. The results of this study showed that cacap-cacapan had: 1) the aesthetic function analysis indicating the beauty of rhyming texts read by the program guide, through the structure and intonation and selection of the right words; 2) the pragmatic function which is based on the analysis that human instincts are a source of knowledge and wisdom in revealing problems in life; 3) the ethical function of oral tradition of the community as a means of education; 4) the historical function that forms civilization, identity, and cultural preservation.
