Made Nagi

made-nagi02Kite Festival

Balinese traditional kites are gigantic and have evolved into increasingly bombastic proportions over the years. Other versions, such as the janggan have impressive ribbon tails often reaching 100 metres or more in length. Jointly built at the communal banjar village halls all over Bali, skilled youths, supervised by elders, craft bamboo frameworks for weeks. The final results await transport towards the Bali Kites Festival flying grounds on Padanggalak Beach.
