(5/11/2012)

The State News Agency Antara reports the Provincial Government of Bali will soon introduce payment standards for performances employing traditional artists.

The standards are to be set forth in a new gubernatorial decree.

The head of the Culture Service of the Bali Provincial Government, I Ketut Suastika, said, “the governor’s decree will be the executing regulation within the existing provincial rules on tourism and culture.”

The standards of compensation for artists is deemed important by the government because, according to Suastika, the existing rules do little that is effective in protecting and regulating traditional performances presented to tourists. As a result, Balinese artists are frequently compelled to travel to and from performances in the back of open trucks.

Suastika asked: “Why is that national artists arrive on airplanes; while our own (local) artists come in open truck?”

He told the press that this question would be discussed with local tourism operators  to find new ways to pay proper homage to Balinese artists.

“As the next step, we will fist finish the drafting of the gubernatorial decree with the tourism service. Then, we will distribute the rules that will protect our artists and their creative work,” Suastika explained.

In the meantime, he hope that the Island’s artists will pay attention to the many offers that their way refusing to receive just any amount - no matter how small, in presenting Balinese dance and music.

Suastika said the hoped the governor’s new decrees would be completed before the end of 2012, in time for full implementation by early 2013.
