Travelers Get Fascinated by Balinese Dance

Travelers Get Fascinated by Balinese DanceTravelers making a visit to Ulun Danu Beratan are very lucky. They will not only see the beauty of the lake, but also witness the presentation of the art and culture through the Ulun Danu Beratan Festival. Indeed, the festival officially opened by the Regent of Tabanan Ni Putu Eka Wiryastuti will last for three months (Jun 16 to Aug 3, 2014) and displays local arts by each customary village at Baturiti in turn.

The art performance is only made every Saturday, Sunday and national holidays. Well, on June 5-6, the Baturiti and Kembang Merta customary village presented some dazzling traditional dances such as the Baris Tunggal, Oleg Tamulilingan, Margapati, Cendrawasih, Jauk Manis, Topen Tua and Kebyar Duduk. Since the presentation of the dance started, visitors instantly came to throng the arena.

Domestic and foreign travelers did not want to miss out such beautiful moment. They directly immortalized the arts through their camera. Even, many travelers ‘kidnapped’ the dancers to pose together with the beautiful backdrop of Lake Beratan and Ulun Danu Temple. “Well, may I take a picture with the dancers?” said one of Japanese travelers in stammering Bahasa Indonesia.

Operations Manager of the Ulun Danu tourist attraction, I Wayan Mustika, said the art festival was held to attract travelers as well as promote and preserve the local traditional arts. This year’s festival took the theme ‘Kerta Danu: through the Ulun Danu Beratan Art Festival II We Improve the Awareness of the Arts as Featured Tourist Destination.’

The festival presented various types of local arts, ranging from classical gamelan music to sacred dances packed for the performing arts. In addition to dances, the festival also featured okokan, gong and classical angklung gamelan music. Then, it was also enlivened by dozens of artists from the United States. “This biennial festival held at the venue with famous lakeside temple is intended to increase tourism income, so that the welfare of local people also increases,” he said.

Experience of the last year’s festival, explained Mustika, showed the increase in tourist arrivals and the income generated amounted to IDR 9 billion. He expected the current festival also increased the visitors. In 2014, his party dared to set a target of IDR 10 billion with 600,000 visitors. “We are optimistic the current festival will achieve the target. Hopefully, this festival has positive impact,” he said. (BTN/015)
