Photographer's Note

Bali is more famous than my country. A friend even asked me if Indonesia is close to Bali. So famous that it is sad to see that lots of Balinese cultures was sacrifice for the sake of visitor. A tradition or ritual that should be religious enough to not perform for commercially purpose.

Lots of debates between balinese elders about if Bali should adjust to it's well known tourist destination.

This one is not really a sacred performance, but even so, this is how the sacred ritual that goes along with dancing and religion ritual performed to attract visitor to visit. Mostly held by hotels and area. The sacred meaning of most of Balinese dance, and Balinese ritual has been slain by some people to get money. And I believe that this is not only happened in Bali, but also in other places
