Free Competition of Barong Dance and Drum in Unhi

Free Competition of Barong Dance and Drum in Unhi 1Free Competition of Barong Dance and Drum in Unhi 2Generation of Barong dancers made a thoroughly stunning appearance. Their skill to perform barong dance was highly fascinating. Technique of their play was unique, filled with creativity and always coming up with different styles. It was the appearance of barong dance and drum competition in the Utsawa Bali Sani IV organized by the Hindu University of Indonesia (Unhi), Sunday (Oct 6).

The competition was participated by 30 companions of barong dancer and 30 single drum players. They were grouped into two categories, namely the teen and adult category. More interestingly, they appeared in free competition because they never had joint exercise previously and even did not know each other. They first met on stage to become a co-dancer. Aside from the art community, the competition was also flooded by spectators and also witnessed by Directorate General of Public Guidance, Ministry of Religious Affairs Prof. Dr. IBG Yudha Triguna, Rector of the Hindu University of Indonesia Dr. Ida Bagus Dharmika, and other academic community within the university.

Rector Dharmika said the annual event of the Unhi Denpasar was very strategic to be implemented in an effort to maintain and preserve the values of the art and culture. As a Hindu-based university, it was trying to portray its function to educate human resources and strengthening the Hindu identity. Chairman of the Event, Ida Bagus Made Mertha, said that other than barong dance and drum, the Utsawa Bali Sani IV this time also organized the competition of gender wayang gamelan music for children and teenager, geguntangan, yoga dance, baleganjur for the level of high school/vocational school across Bali, sermon in Balinese language for high school/vocational school across Bali and Pajegan mask. Similarly, the event was enlivened by the staging of Gita Semara flute gamelan, gamelan co-presentation for children category and performance of Calonarang by the Unhi.

Meanwhile, Ketut Rudita said the purpose of competition was to motivate young artists in order to help preserve the Balinese culture. “Foreign tourists come to visit Bali because they are interested in the Balinese art and culture. When the culture inspired by Hinduism disappears, Bali will turn into a sluggish world destination,” he said. (BTN/015)
