Beyond a Balinese Love Story | February 2022 Edition
Added to cart
In this month’s issue, we share two feature articles inspired by ‘theme’ of February, love! We bring you two Balinese stories about love — sadly, both are tragic, but are insightful anecdotes into the local culture and history of the island. The first is Barong Landung, an ancient story that speaks of Bali’s multi-ethnic and multi-faith tolerance, particularly when it comes to its Chinese history. The second is the legend of Jayaprana and Layon Sari, whose tragic love has meant that couples today can be blessed with what they could not have.
As Bali’s Day of Silence takes place on 3 March 2022, Jean Couteau and Eric Buvelot share how this central Balinese tradition has evolved over the decades. This month, Richard Horstman explores the work of an innovative Balinese photographer who inspires memories of pre-colonial Bali. You’ll also read about a masterclass in Balinese jewellery making; exploring the mangroves of Kedonganan; discover the latest dining destinations and up-coming events.
