In the presentation, the team performed an ogoh-ogoh (papier mâché demon) as the embodiment of Kumbakarna and was capable of drawing the audience to be increasingly curious.

The performing art under direction of Made Sidia was designed quite uniquely where in the single title included four art shows with sequential or continuous storyline. The reverberated voices of cak a cappella were followed by bitter battle between Rama’s monkey troops against Kumbakarna causing the audience to applaud unceasingly.

Billboards in Badung to be Designed in Balinese StylesAlthough his tenure remains one year to go, it does not dampen the enthusiasm and commitment of the Regent of Badung, Anak Agung Gede Agung, and staff to make populist policies inspired by Balinese culture. One of the policies is preparing a Regent Regulation serving as a legal instrument for the arrangement of billboard placement in Badung region.

The measure of the regent to cut ‘illegal billboards’ is considered to be very consistent as well as poses a follow-up to the state speech of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on August 15, 2014 who praised the Badung County as an international tourist destination.
