About the Bali Arts Festival
Fortunately if your holiday exactly to meet this even so our team of bali driver and tour service with pleasure to accompany you to watch this performance. An array of traditional and contemporary cultural shows will be presented when Bali holds the one month long Bali Arts Festival in June. It is a full month of daily performances, handicraft exhibitions, and others related cultural and commercial activities during which the whole of Bali literally comes to the city to presents its offerings of dance, music and beauty.
On display are trances from remote mountain slopes, forgotten or recently revived village dances, food and offering contests, classical palace dances, odd musical performances of kreasi baru (new creations) from the dance schools of Denpasar, as well as contemporary choreography and dance performances from other parts of Indonesia and abroad.
It is a month long revelry that perhaps no other place in the world can put up on such a low budget as the Balinese. Not only is their traditional culture alive and well, but they take tremendous pride in it.
It begins in the villages, where the seka or cultural group are selected and organized at the regency level, vie with each other to perform at the Arts Festival, and thus display in front of a large audience the uniqueness of their village of birth and resting place of their ancestors.
The Bali Arts Festival is the cultural event of the year, perhaps it would not be too far fetched to suggest that it is the cultural event of Indonesia. The festival is thus a unique opportunity to see local village cultural both “live” and at firsthand. Tourists are warmly welcomed.
