Bali, Om Swastyastu, dance

Om Swastyastu, dance


Om Swastyastu is the words in greeting someone in Balinese religion. It is sounding when the Balinese meet the other without depending the time because basically there are no Good Morning, Good afternoon etc. in Balinese language.

The Abangan boys have been training hard (3 times a week) in 3 different type of dances.

They would have 4 days of performances in April in a temple in Ubud. I am invited to be there to support them. I am supporting and promoting their art and culture. I hope they would have regular weekly performances soon.
