BARONG AND KRIS DANCE
Batubulan others great claim to fame is trance – every morning at 9.30 sharp. Here you can witness the eternal conflict between Ratu Barong, the faithful guardian of community, who looks like an overdressed cross between a lion and a Pekinese dog, and the pendulous-breasted Rangda, denomic mistress of the graveyard. At the height of the drama, Barong’s entranced acolytes turn their serpentine-bladed krises upon themselves, ussully with no ill effect. Even the Balinese, who find a trance state easy to slip into, draw the line at trancing every day, so they have invented more mundane tricks to avoid being wounded by their sharp blades.
The Barong dance, as the perfomance has recently been renamed for accuracy, is nonetheless an impressive spectacle, and it is not unusual for one or teo of the players to unexpectedly drop into a gunuine trance. Three very professional groups perform the Barong Dance each morning. Barong and kris dance is included in the bali tour package that we offered to you.

The skills of the Celuk artisans are such that they can move effortlessy from their traditional art of highly decorative filigree ornamentation to the streamlined geometrical shapes of today, creating contemporary pieces that are populer the world over. The cottage industry has spread troughh the entire village, far beyond the rows of ornate artshop buildings that front the main road, to the family compounds, where children work beside their elders, learning the skills of the art from a very young age.
This village is very famous on bali tour package and about 2 miles beyond Batuan, at a thrty-three-foot stone statue of an exceptionally well-fed baby Buddha, the main road takes a sharp turn to the right, while a smaller one contonues straight up the hill toward Ubud, passing first through the prosperous village of MAS. While Ubud and Batuan were attaining fame in the 1930’s as centers of painting, Mas was firmly staking its claim to became Bali’s preeminent center of modern woodcarving.
Long before reaching the village itself, the first shops begin appear, offering anything from crude mass-produced carvings in local soft wood which can be bought for less than a dollar, to work of recognized masterd fine-grained ebony, jackfruit, or sandalwood that can set one back many thousands of dollars. The skills of Mas did not descend out of the blue but evolved over many generations.
Woodcarving was traditionally the exclusive domain of powerful clan of Brahmana, the high-priest caste which, as in Batuan is exceptionally well represented in Mas. Until this century, these craftsmen confined their activities to producing ritual objects, musical instruments, dance masks, and sacred statues, but then a few of the younger members discovered that producing carvings for export could be a profitable buisness. Several of the Brahmana artists still find time between fulfilling export orders to carve sacred art onjects for the temple.

Batur In 1926, during the violent eruption of Mt.Batur, the original village of Batur, at the sourthern foot of the mountain, was totally destroyed.

PURI SAREN UBUD
One of the most respected dance groups in Bali perform several nights a week in the outer courtyard of the principal palace, at the northeast corner of the central crossroad. Their backdrop is a grand gate, kori agung, built bu Ubud’s most famous artists, I Gusti Nyoman Lempad. It separates the outer courtyard from the inner sanctum of the palace where the current ruling Cokorda lives. The Puri Saren was demolished by the great eartquake of 1917, so the maze of courtyards, pavilion, and elaborate gates extending far behind the Kori Agung were mostly built soon thereafter.
Merajan Agung. The towering gate above a steep flight of steps immediately north of main palace is one of the finest of its kind, with a striking pyramid of Boma faces rising above its door. This is the main entrance to the Merajan Agung, the private palace temple of the Royal Family within which are housed the palace’s most revered heirlooms. This palace is included on our bali tour package.
KECAK FIRE DANCE
The Kecak is one of the most populer shows amongst visitors to Bali. Performance start at dusk, with the lighting of flickering torches in a giant candelabra and the placing of offerings on the stage. Sudden shouts pierce the tranquility of the evening, and out of the darkness run a troupe of chanting men wearing black and white check sarong, chesta gleaming in the torchlight. They quickly arrange themselves in a series of concentric circles around the candelabra, where they sway and chant, one moment in unison, the next moment in syncopated counterpoint.
A small group of dancers in full traditional costume perform an excerpt from the Ramayana in the midst of the waving sea of arms and bodies, dancing to the orchestrated voices. The “chak-chak-chak” of the chorus is adapted from the Sanghyang chant, and the entire performance has an ethereal quality enhanced by the flickering of the torchlight. The first Kecak was created by dancers in Bedulu, Gianyar, who were commissioned by the well-known expatriate painter, Walter Spies. The first simple version was an immediate success, and now Bali boats at least a dozen professional Kecak groups that perform regularly at the larger hotels and in special open stages built for purpose in their banjar.
