BEC (Banyuwangi Ethno Carnival) 2

This post relates to the previous one. Just because it's the second event of the Banyuwangi Ethno Carnival.
Something distinguishing them is the theme. The theme of the second one is Re_Barong Using.

Banyuwangi Ethno Carnival 2012

It was held on November 18, 2013. 200 Participants joined it and demonstrated their own costumes on catwalk  along 2,5 km.

Re_Barong Osing itself means the participants can make their own styles with the theme provided, however they can't revamp the characteristic of Barong Using itself. The have to notice that their costumes don't deviate from the original one.

The face of Barong is like wolf. It has crown and wings in the right and left side with combination of red, yellow, and green colors. This art is usually showed as  folklore in certain occasional, such as wedding and khitan.

I do agree with the existence of it as the annual event. Because it will make people know about every art in Banyuwangi and the people who have known, will not easily forget it. In other words it will preserve the cultures and develop it to the more stunning arts. I hope the next event would be greater.
