Competition of Bungan Sandat Dance and Song

Competition of Bungan Sandat Dance and SongThe Bungan Sandat (ylang-ylang) song and dance becoming the mascot of Tabanan was contested. Twelve participants from the PKK group of Tabanan village participated in the competition. “The competition aims to give space and time to show off the capability of women in dancing and singing Balinese song,” said Subdistrict Head of Tabanan IGA Nyoman Supartiwi, the initiator of the cultural event held in the Ketut Mario Cultural Hall, Tabanan, Thursday (Feb 14).

Amid the onslaught of terrible waves of information technology, she added, it was feared that Balinese women would forget their identity as Balinese. Moreover, when people chose the global art and culture, perhaps they would not be completely appropriate with the spirit of the local arts and culture. “To socialize the Bungan Sandat Dance competition, we expect the envoy of each PKK group will become trainer in their respective village,” she said.

Meanwhile, the originator of the Bungan Sandat Dance as the mascot, Regent of Tabanan Ni Putu Eka Wiryastuti, said in the celebration of the 520th anniversary of Tabanan town, the Bungan Sandat Serasi would be put into competition. “In the next anniversary of Tabanan town, we will put the Bungan Sandat Dance into competition to be more known to the public. Otherwise, who should appreciate our culture?” she asked. (BTN/015)
