indonesia. part two

Videos.

By request by netizen Mateen (kudos again to the video idea) here are a couple of clips from youtube.com based on some of the many religious rituals in Bali. The first clip is on the Galungan Celebrations- there’re no voice-overs though but you can clearly see the important symbolic roles of foods during the offerings and religious procession.

The next clip explains the Ogoh-Ogoh ceremony which I thought was a pretty cool representation of Balinese life and how Balinese children see some of the rituals.

AND I forgot to mention the tumpeng on the Indonesian blog entry. It’s like the Nasi Rawang equivalent for a festive meal in Indonesia but instead of a simple scoop of white rice in the middle, tumpeng is a yellow rice pyramid surrounded by small dishes- the tip of the pyramid will then be served to the eldest person there.
