Soka Indah Restaurant & Bungalow Holds Ogoh-ogoh Competition Introducing Tourism of West Tabanan

Soka Indah Restaurant  Bungalow Holds Ogoh-ogoh Competition Introducing Tourism of West TabananMYRIAD people watched the ogoh-ogoh competition at Soka Indah Restaurant & Bungalows on Monday (Mar 4). Aside from local community, domestic and foreign tourists also thronged to witness the unique cultural performance. Soka Beach tourist area renowned for its beauty instantly turned into a sea of people.

The competition inaugurated by Deputy Regent of Tabanan, Komang Sanjaya, was marked by the beating of gong and attended by the expert of the arts and culture, officials of Tabanan County and witnessed by Deputy Regent of Kebumen, Cilacap, and Deputy Regent of Banjar Negara, Supeno.

A total of 18 pieces of ogoh-ogoh participated in the first competition. Those works of art were the result of creation of customary youth clubs across Central Selemadeg, East Selemadeg and Kediri subdistrict. Each participant showed off complete attraction along with the theme and story featured.

Managing Director of Soka Indah Restaurant & Bungalows, Arnantyo Naresyworo, said the competition was a medium of coaching to young people, an effort to preserve the art and culture and a complement to tourist destination in Tabanan. “The event is also intended to promote the tourist area of West Tabanan having huge potential,” he said.

The event, he added, also served as a medium to build the character of the nation. Sometimes, young people lost their pride in the works of our ancestors. Current generation preferred Hollywood films to shadow puppet, Western music to traditional music such as rindik, gender and gamelan as well as modern dance to traditional dance.

On that account, the ogoh-ogoh having become a work of art should be preserved. Tawur Kesanga exorcism rite was intended to create a balance between the negative and positive forces, so that the figure of bhuta kala would inspire the youth to realize a creative imagination popularly known as ogoh-ogoh (papier mâché demon).

According to him, the facts drove him to keep the ogoh-ogoh that would be displayed in the museum including the audio visual and photographs depicting all the activities related to Nyepi celebration. “Ogoh-ogoh will be showcased in the museum. In the future, we will make ogoh-ogoh from recycled materials,” said this man vigorously.

From all the participants were chosen three winners that were entitled to win cash prize of IDR 10 million for first position, IDR 7 million for the second position and IDR 5 million for the third position. Meanwhile, the other participants received consolation prizes. (BTN/015)
