30 Oct 2020 20:00 - 20:15

In the words and the silences of ancient manuscripts, imagine Bali and all its natural worlds brought to life. This is a rare chance to hear recitations of Bali’s lontar, palm leaf manuscripts, from revered cultural figures IGA Darma Putra and Ida Bagus Oka Manobhawa.

Dalam kata-kata dan keheningan dari manuskrip kuno, bayangkan Bali dan seluruh alamnya dihidupkan kembali. Ini adalah kesempatan langka untuk mendengarkan pembacaan lontar dari tokoh budaya yang dihormati IGA Darma Putra dan Ida Bagus Oka Manobhawa.
