June 2008

See Sanat Kumara's site:

Gambuh, a classic dance drama that now is on the edge of extinction,
is considered as the ancestor of all Balinese dances. All
dance-techniques originate in its movement, all scales and melodies
from its peculiar gamelan. It is so rare that a Balinese may never see
a gambuh performance throughout his life.


For those who are Sydney University Indonesian Studies alumni and friends, the reunion on 15th August now has a website, <>.

Just been to Siem Reap, where they could really teach Bali a thing or two about how to approach tourism. No overcrowding of buildings, no streets lined with art shops, people keep things clean (no sea of plastic bags dumped around the place), and the sellers certainly don't hassle you as much as Balinese sellers do (are Balinese sellers the worst in Asia? Even the ones in India didn't seem as bad for harrassment).

Just gathering my thoughts for the Bali Cultural Congress on 14th and 15th, where I'm talking about the future of Balinese culture. It seems now that Bali's 'cultural tourism' strategy is long dead, so where does that leave us?
