Please briefly describe your fields and areas of interest(approximately 250 words).
My formal qualification is in the field of Dance Ethnology and Ethnomusicology, from UCLA and Wesleyan University, USA. I have conducted numerous researches in the field of Indonesian music and dance, created and produced many dances, including teaching Balinese dance all over the world, and published many books about Balinese dance, music and theatre. Currently, together with STMIK STIKOM Bali, we continue to synergize education and research in the field of technology and culture.
In the year 1992, as the chairman of STSI Denpasar, I led the research for the mapping of Balinese arts, and we found 6512 performing art groups, to which became the base of the nomination of three genres of traditional dance in Bali, of sacred, semi-sacred, and secular) for inscription on Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity UNESCO.
As member of LISTIBIYA Bali, 1971, we classified Balinese dance as Wali dances (sacred), Wewali dances (semi-sacred) and Walih-Walihan dances (secular).
