Contest of Barong Dance and Single Drum Play

Contest of Barong Dance and Single Drum PlayOn August 16-17, 2014, the Monkey Forest Ubud is ascertained to be more bustling. During two days the ‘Taruna Suka Duka’ customary youth club of Padang Tegal hamlet, Ubud, will hold the contest of bapang barong dance and single drum play centered at the tourist object. The artists and art lovers across Bali and even overseas will be certainly present.

Contest of these two unique arts is scheduled to take place in open stage and Wantilan Hall of Dalem Agung Temple of Padang Tegal. The contest in conjunction with the Trena Jenggala Cup will be scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. All participants of the dance and gamelan players will be from various regions in Bali. “We are currently preparing the implementation of the art contest to make people more comfortable when enjoying all the art presentations,” said the Operations Manager of Monkey Forest tourist attraction, Ubud, Nyoman Buana, Saturday (Aug 2).

Apart from serving as traditional art preservation, explained Buana, the contest would also be held in the commemoration of the golden jubilee of the customary youth club and an effort to introduce the tourist attraction. “Monkey Forest is more widely known by foreign travelers, so that it begins to be introduced to domestic travelers, especially those from Bali. By that way, Monkey Forest can be widely known,” he hoped.

Besides, continued Buana, the event held at Monkey Forest also served as contribution to support the activities of younger generation. “We hope to support it by providing a means of Balinese artistic and cultural tradition in particular the growing barong,” he said.

However, before implementing the contest, the organizer would hold a Tumpek Kandang ritual on Saturday (Aug 9). At that time, the management planned to fill the event with flute art performance presented by young artists from Tegal hamlet, Ubud. “The ceremony is held amidst the ongoing art exhibition,” said Buana.
