Yogyakarta (ANTARA News) - Yogyakarta Cultural Park (TBY) will present traditional art performances as art programs along 2013.

"We will present traditional art group of Langen Mendrawanaran on March 31," Chairman of the Art Performance Committee of TBY Sri Eka Kusumaningayu said here on Thursday.

She said there were four groups of arts that will perform on March such as the dance groups of Wirogo Apuletan, karawitan traditional Music group of AMPTA and traditional arts group of Langen Mendrawanaran.

There are four performing arts groups every month, so that there would be 48 groups to perform in 2013.

"The event was held for public and free of charge, the goal is to introduce the traditional arts to community," she said.

Kusumaningayu expected that the effort to introduce traditional arts could encourage community awareness of local art that is starting to disappear due to television programs.

"Hopefully this activity could encourage traditional arts regeneration process, development of arts and loved by people," she said.
