I recent ly spent a lovely evening there and was t reated to a performance of the Margapati Dance by a beaut i ful female dancer. Sticking wi th the tradition of the Margapat i dance, the
female dancer wore as tunning cos tume that included a traditional male head piece made of metal and coated in gold to decorate her head. The Margapati dance was created in 1942 by I Nyoman Kaler and was inspired by the movement s of the king of the jungle, the lion. The beaut i ful female performer Kadek Evandriani, a dancer of Sanggar War ini danced exquisi tely

with the audience feel ing the s t rength of her movements more and more wi th every routine. Ibu Kadek was accompanied by a group of musicians playing a traditional Gamelan orchestra, who complemented her performance perfectly.The whole per formance was as tonishing.
