Pendet, the Balinese dance

Pendet dance from Bali
Pendet is a dance performed exclusively for religious ritual purposes. Pendet created by I Wayan Rindi (1967), maestro of Balinese dance known as the composer Pendet sacred. But there are some sources say, that this dance was created by I Nyoman Kaler in 1970. This dance tells the gods falling to earth. Although this dance for religious ritual, but this dance is more often performed in religious activities outside the event.

There are many types of growing Pendet today. One of the most often performed is Panyembrahma Dance. Pendet dance is the most frequently staged Panyembrama Dance.

Ironic, is currently Pendet not favored by the Balinese girl. They do not want to learn to dance, because the movements of Balinese dance is very difficult. However, Balinese dances are very popular with people from various countries. Especially the Japanese, they are very fond of Balinese dances. Many Japanese people come to Bali to study Balinese dance. Not only the Japanese, Europeans and Americans loved the Balinese dances. But the Balinese are very few who want to become dancers Bali.

Some time ago, there was an effort of cultural deprivation, Pendet, by country of Malaysia. Malaysia acts, which claims Pendet, as part of its culture, Wayan Rindi family is very regrettable. In his lifetime, Wayan Rindi not think to register the findings, so as not to imitate other countries. In addition there is no institution of copyright, Balinese dance has not been patented, because it contains a vast spiritual values​​, and can not be monopolized as a human creation, or a particular nation.

Let us together keep this Balinese culture. No matter where we came from. Because, Balinese culture is the culture for all of us. Are global and universal.
