CULTURAL PERFORMANCES

Bali culture is unique and famous especially for its rich and vibrant arts. Various forms of dance and music have made Bali’s arts and culture scene one of the most diverse in the world.

Music, drama, dance and costumes become a feast for the senses during temple festivities. Rites of passage at Balinese family households can almost be seen daily, celebrating the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. Special cultural dates and highlights also mark the calendar, through annual art festivals and local revelries that visitors should check out to make the best of their visit.


Art is everywhere in Bali. From the intricate flower decorations in a Barong dancer’s headdress, to elaborately carved temple facades and beautiful oil paintings. Bali’s performing arts are also an integral part of Balinese culture. Music and dance play a huge part in significant rituals and religious ceremonies. Known as ” the Island of the Gods” hardly a day goes by without a ceremony or festival taking place. Traditional dances with full gamelan orchestras are performed for tourists daily in addition to the day to day religious ceremonies. Definitely worth seeing.
