Balinese Dance and Javanese Dance with gamelan music is ‘almost’ normal to be seen when you learn about Indonesia, as these are the Indonesian culture that most people know. However, Indonesia is not about Bali and Java, it’s about other islands with their own unique culture and dance. Last year we had Bunga Nusantara Dance Group performing several dances representing different dances from different islands. This time we were lucky to have Novel Damanik, who will performed Bataknese Dance solo.
Novel Damanik love to dance, especially Batak Dance, she used to performed in traditional Batak weddings. Now, for the last 2 years she’s been living in the UK, she needs an outlet of her dancing hobby.
So if you would like to see how Batak Dance is performed, she will be there on our Wonderful Indonesia Festival on the 29th of April 2017.
