The commander of the 9th Udayana Military Command headquartered in Bali, Major General Wisnu Bawa Tenaya, together with the Mayor of Bali’s capital city of Denpasar, Rai Darma Wijaya Manta, jointly opened the “Rare Bali Festival”- a festival dedicated specifically to the Balinese culture as celebrated by the children of the island.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Wisnu Bawa Tenaya opened the festival on Thursday, August 7, 2014, saying, “Let’s raise up the culture of Bali together in order that the energy of the Island is guarded together and out children are prepared to become Indonesia’s future leaders.”

He said he hope the festival of dance and culture dedicated to children performance will provide the momentum to ensure that Bali’s cultural traditions are not forgotten.”

At the opening of the festival the mayor of Denpasar, Ida Bagus Rai Dharma Wijaya, said that the Rare Bali Festival – dedicated to children and the performing arts – has the ability to answer the challenges posed by globalization to preserving tradition and culture.

The festival – filled with music, traditional games and dances performed by children – introduces the love of Balinese culture to children and tries to act as a bulwark against the relentless intrusions of foreign culture.

The festival opened with a baleganjur cultural parade conducted by more than one thousand grade, middle and high school children. The festival continued with cultural shows presented by children at the Puri Agung Palace in Kesiman, painting competitions, demonstrations on how to make Balinese offerings and ritual accoutrements, and traditional dolanan song and dance performances.

The festival also included a painting and photography exhibition – all created by the children of Bali.

The festival came to a close on Saturday, August 9, 2104.
