TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - On the side of Danube River, eight Indonesian of Sobrak dancers dressed in red and blue costumes enlightened Slovak citizens on Wednesday, August 23. They performed on the stage of Bratislava Kulturne A Informacne Stredisko 2017 (BKIS). 

The Indonesian Embassy (KBRI) in Bratislava, Slovakia, informed on Thursday that about 450 spectators were amazed by the Sobrak dance performance. The audiences were also presented other Indonesian dance performances, such as Bajidor Kahot dance, Jejer Jaran Dawuk and Cendrawasih dances.

During the occasion, music and Indonesian songs were played in a medley by using traditional and modern musical instruments. The dancers and music team are an art team managed by KBRI Bratislava "Smara Gita Art" consisting of Slovak citizens, the staffs of KBRI Bratislava, and Indonesian people living in Slovakia.

After the performance of music and dance, the audience enjoyed Indonesian tea and coffee. And of course Indonesian cuisine, such as fried rice, fried noodles prepared in small portions for free. The audience also enthusiastically answered the quiz about Indonesia for a prize.

Indonesian Ambassador to Slovakia, Adiyatwidi Adiwoso, expressed his gratitude for the high appreciation of Slovak society towards Indonesian arts and cultures.

According to him, the Embassy will always participate and support every activity that promotes the art of culture, culinary, tourism and economy of Indonesian in Slovakia.

It is expected that this art performance can further strengthen the relationship between the two nations and more people of Slovakia know about Indonesia. With an active promotion, Indonesia will be more open to market opportunities in Slovakia and can expand the network of "friends of Indonesia" in various fields.

The cultural festival was held at one of Slovakia's largest shopping centers "EuroviaMall" for approximately three months from July to September.
