The Island of Love
While dance has always been a central part of Bali’s culture, the island is also well known for its many love songs and romantic odes. During a typical legong performance, a young girl dances with her legs spread out wide, and flutters a pair of bumblebees in the air. This is called Olek Tambuli Lingan, and it’s a romantic touch that is only found on this special occasion.
