The Indonesian Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar will establish cooperation with Nanjing University of the Arts-China. Through the cooperation, the ISI Denpasar can exchange lecturers and students, make joint research and performance with China as a country being very rich in the arts and culture. It was revealed when the Rector of the ISI Denpasar Prof. Dr. I Wayan Rai S received the visit from the Nanjing University of the Arts-China, Thursday (Feb 14). An entourage consisting of about 10 people was led by Prof. Guang Jian Hua from the Department of Anthropology of Music, Music Education, and David Tang, a doctoral candidate in the Anthropology of Music as well as the university students.
Prof. Rai accompanied by Deputy Rector IV, I Wayan Suweca, said the visit of Nanjing University of the Arts served as an initial bridge to further cooperation. “We hope the visit of the ISI Denpasar to China later will be able to establish the cooperation by signing the MoU,” he said. According to Prof. Rai, the relationship between China and Indonesia, especially Bali, had long existed. His party had performed a research on Gong Beri gamelan used to accompany the performance of Baris China Dance. In addition, there were also a story on Kang Ching Wie, namely a marriage of Balinese King to the daughter of Chinese merchants, and the Chinese literature on Sampek Ing Tai.
Meanwhile, Prof. Guang said that other than meeting in person with Prof. Rai as researcher, they also wanted to learn the Balinese gamelan and curriculum, chiefly the syllabus on traditional music at the ISI Denpasar. It was a follow-up to previous visit received by the Deputy Rector II of the ISI Denpasar, Dr. I Gede Arya Sugiartha. (BTN/015)
