The Fifth Bali Spirit Festival

The fifth Bali Spirit Festival (BSF) took place uniquely. Dozens of musicians and artists from various countries intermingled and complemented one another on a single stage. The art compositions presented were not only beautiful, but also highlighted spiritual touch. Religious spirit became the primary goal of each participant, not to mention the audience. On that account, the materials of festival highlighted was very specific, namely music, dance and yoga.

BSF took place for five days (March 28-April 1) in ARMA Museum, Ubud, where every night there would be presentation of the five art troupes of domestic and overseas participants. In the BSF, more than 100 performers from several countries were involved. Some participants made their first time performance, while some others had got involved in the similar event previously. Among them, there were participants from Ghana, Africa, the United States, Canada, India, Australia, Britain and France.

 

Initiator of the BSF, I Made Gunarta, said that BSF was organized to embody the spirit of Balinese based on Tri Hita Karana concept so as to enhance the lifestyles to reach harmony and reinforce the spiritual, including human relationship to nature. “Therefore, emphasis of this year’s event is yoga, music and dance that we consider universal,” said Gunarta

Not only that, the BSF also directed all the activities to be donated to nature as we cared about the environment, such as the movement of bamboo planting that had been undertaken.

Such BSF event provided a good opportunity to local and foreign artists from various countries to get together on one stage. As a result, they could get to know and admire the existing arts. Besides, it was also intended to align the local and international artists.

Therefore, he continued, the BSF gave more opportunities to the involvement of young children. It was not meant to patronize one another, but it tended to discover an inspiration in artistic creation in the future. Interestingly, it could also establish familiarity on stage and back stage. For Balinese artists, the BSF of this year featured the gamelan composition of Gambang, Semar Pegulingan, and Jegog in combination.

According to Gunarta, these activities got a high appreciation from various countries. Last year, the similar event could bring in 500 tourists directly to the BSF event. And for the fifth BSF, it was officially opened by Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy represented by the Inspector General of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, I Gusti Putu Laksaguna, Tuesday (Mar 27). “We are targeting 1,000 foreign visitors who watch the BSF organization,” he hoped.
