Getting Interested in Jegog, a Foreign Tourist Joins to Dance

Getting Interested in Jegog a Foreign Tourist Joins to Dance 1When Jegog music, a typical traditional gamelan of Jembrana, was played at the Bali Arts Festival (BAF) XXXVI, visitors immediately went to the Ayodya Stage. Just within a few minutes, the stage located in the northeast of the Art Center was instantly fully occupied. More interestingly, foreign travelers sitting on the front row were ready with cameras and camcorders.
It was the turn of Metu Swara Jegog Troupe from Banyu Biru village and Swara Sandhi Jegog Troupe from Perancak village, Negara subdistrict (Jembrana) to make performance on Saturday (Jul 5). The gamelan composition played by natural artists sounded melodious. The tones overlapped and gave cheerfulness as if it invited the audience to rejoice.  
Initially, they presented classical gamelan music and Bangun Jembrana creation that purely introduced the beautiful sound of the Jegog gamelan instrument. Later, the collaboration with the artists of dancer indicated if the gamelan estimated to have existed since 1912 was really interesting to be used as dance accompaniment. The dances presented looked innovative in terms of the dance movement or fashion.

Enchanting Rare Roro Arja Operetta  

An Interesting Collaboration of Kid ArtistsAre children today only able to play? Oh.... it’s not entirely correct. Have a look at their action in the Bali Arts Festival (BAF) XXXVI at the Bali Art Center. For a whole month (Jun 13 to Jul 12), they make expressions in some art programs. Some are involved in the opening parade, staging to competition or parade.

Unique Tradition in Mengwi Grand Palace

A Symbol to Unite Leader and Its People

Unique Tradition in Mengwi Grand PalaceThe existence of palace as a patron and protector, especially in the preservation of the Balinese Art, Culture and Traditions seems irrefutable, at least we could see on Friday (Jun 13) with the implementation of ceremonies like the meleladan in relation to the Padudusan Agung ritual in the family shrine of Mengwi Grand Palace, Badung. It poses a hereditary tradition that has been carried out since the eighteenth century since the founding of the Mengwi kingdom in 1734.
