Nyepi news

The Ogoh Ogoh parade on the night before Nyepi, or Pengerupukan, in and around Denpasar may be quieter this year after the Denpasar Cultural Board prohibited the use any kind of sound system on the night. Denpasar Mayor, Rai Mantra, hopes that the celebration will be safe, comfortable and can be accepted by the community within religious and cultural ethics. He explained that they have agreed in only allowing the use of traditional Balinese music instruments because the creativity of the parade should show the cultural identity. He also hoped that all of the ogoh ogoh don’t have any political, pornographic and discriminatory elements and banned the use of Styrofoam. Here’s to a cleaner, more traditional Nyepi Ogoh-ogoh celebration this 2019 on March 6! Nyepi is March 7.
