Gallivanting Show on Galungan and Kuningan Festivity5 September 2011
One of those traditions is the timeless Ngelawang or gallivanting show. Modernization has reached all nooks and crannies of the country including Bali. However, certain traditions remain to survive under the scour of era. One of those traditions is the timeless Ngelawang or gallivanting show.
Atmosphere of this tradition stays to exist in several regions of Bali such as in Denpasar, Klungkung, Gianyar and Badung. Typically, the tradition is performed on the day after Galungan festivity as on the last one. Some teenagers joining in the Wisnu Murti dance studio, Siku Hamlet, Kamasan, Klungkung, came down to streets belonging to the territory of Gelgel customary village and including to the nook and cranny of Semarapura city. By carrying the barong bangkung (she pig), dozens of teenagers organized the gallivanting show tradition throughout the village. “From one day before Galungan, we’ve kicked off to look around from one house to another. However, our show on the first day was less maximal due to showered by heavy rains,” explained one of the members, Ketut Ngurah Widiadnyana.
The results obtained were quite tolerable. Within a one-day gallivanting show, the studio having 15 members could raise money as much as IDR 560,000. “Every house asking the show is usually charged between IDR1O,000 and IDR 20,000,” added Widiadnyana. Though they had to walk quite far, they looked remarkably cheerful as radiated by the face of those teenagers preserving the tradition of gallivanting show. Meanwhile, Wayan Kereng, Deputy Head of Gelgel customary village when met in association with the rampant young children of the region preserving the culture stated his pride of their creativity. When asked if the Gelgel customary village will help the gallivanting show of the Barong Troupe growing well in his territory, Wayan promised to help if his party had more funds. “Of course, we will lend a hand if we have any funds,” he said diplomatically.
