I Love Bali Podcast

Nyepi Day 2023

It will start at 6:00 a. m. * on March 22, 2023
and ends at 6:00 a. m. * on March 23, 2023

Nyepi is the Balinese New Year. And it is very different than in the western world. Because Bali goes 24 hours offline.

NEW TRADITIONS Nyepi, the "Day of Silence", one of Bali's most important religious celebrations, is held each March and brings the entire island to a complete standstill for 24 hours. On the evening before Nyepi begins, there are dramatic parades of huge paper miché or Styrofoam monsters known as Ogoh-Ogoh, meant to represent the demons to be cleansed from the island.

This video shows, why Bali is 😇ffline on Nyepi:

Because they are doing so much damage to the internet connection cables during the Pawai Ogoh Ogoh ceremonies!!!🤣

Today most visitors assume that the Ogoh Ogoh is an ancient Balinese tradition. But in truth they are a very recent innovation, first appearing in Denpasar in the 1980s. There is no better illustration of the vibrant dynamism of Balinese culture on the one hand, and of how quickly new inventions can come to be regarded as fixed "traditions" on the other. Even during their short existence, the Ogoh Ogoh have undergone reinvention. In the 1990s and carry 2000s many of the individual monsters were modeled on figures from modern popular culture-from terrorist bombers to Hollywood villains. Today, however, these pop cultures Ogoh Ogoh have become markedly less common, thanks to calls from conservative religious authorities for people to restrict their monster-making to "traditional" subjects, demons from Hindu-Balinese mythology.
