Revive, creative music art collaboration in Gianyar

Revive creative music art collaboration in GianyarGianyar town as the art storehouse never runs out of innovations in the arts. Anniversary of the town is a medium for the artists to express their creative works. It was visible in the collaborative performance of the Giri Anyar Blahbatuh song and comedy at the Gianyar Cultural Hall Open Stage, Monday night (Apr 15). Staging of the contemporary art collaboration was accompanied with the fusion of traditional Balinese music and modern music. Distinctive tones of gamelan instrument were beautified by the sound of modern music melody and graceful movement of the dancers without having to leave the cores of traditional movement styles.

According to the Coordinator of Giri Anyar Art Studio, Gusti Ngurah Aryawan, in the staging at the Cultural Hall was presented modern musical instrument like electric guitar, bass, acoustic guitar, kojen and keyboard, while the traditional musical instruments in use consisted of 4 units of gangsa semar pegulingan, 2 units of calung, 2 units of jegog, 1 drum, 1 flute, cymbal, and 4 pairs of cengceng baleganjur. Ngurah Aryawan explained it took him15 days to make preparations for the show. The obstacle encountered was the difficulty to harmonize the vocal of Ray Peni with the music because the vocal of the Balinese pop singer from Batuan was higher. It took longer time to harmonize the music with the vocal of Ray Peni. But after fitting, Ngurah admitted that Ray Peni was very satisfied with the results of the collaboration.

Aside from presenting Ray Peni with a number of songs like Gianyar Bersatu, Karya Agung, Suka-suka di Hati, the art studio also accompanied the singer Dek Arya with his songs entitled Sekpri and Sing Juari. Similarly, another pop singer Yan Se also made his appearance with the song entitled Blabar Agung and Ngidang Sabar. A female singer like Sara also took part in the performance with the songs entitled Taksu, Khatulistiwa and Kala Cinta Menggoda as well as the appearance of Dek Sandi with the song entitled Bungan Sandat and Natad Sandal. The staging taking place for almost 3 hours was also enlivened by the appearance of Lawak Sangar et al, Fire Dance and Dewa Dewi Dance. The art studio located at Buruan hamlet, Celuk, Sukawati, was established on August 5, 2012 and made its first participation in the anniversary of the Gianyar town.

Gusti Ngurah Aryawan explained the Giri Anyar Studio was formed to unite the two genres of music developing at Buruan village, namely the traditional and modern one. The performance supported by some 50 people looked very populistic. Even, the audience sat in cross-legged in front of the stage neatly. Impressive nuance was also felt by one of the spectators from Cebaang Serongga, Gianyar, Ida Bagus Agung Purnama. Such night show was truly different from the previous years. “The atmosphere is very populistic. All spectators sat in cross-legged in front of the stage,” said Ida Bagus Agung Purnama.

Division Head of the Arts and Film, the Gianyar Culture Agency, I Wayan Suwija, said the idea of collaboration was held to increase the appeal of the show in the celebration of the 242nd anniversary of Gianyar Town so that it would no longer be monotonous from year to year. “Innovative element was visible from every performance without eliminating the cores of traditional rules,” he explained.
