Women make batik at the Batik Klasik workshop in Bantul
Women make batik at the Batik Klasik workshop in Bantul, near the ancient city of Yogyakarta June 21, 2012. Malaysia is separated from Indonesia's Sumatra island by just 40 miles (64 km) of water, but an ocean has opened up between them over who owns a traditional dance, the latest in a series of disputes between the Southeast Asian neighbours. Malaysian efforts to promote the Tor-tor folk dance and Gordang Sambilan drum performance - both with origins in Sumatra - as its own cultural heritage sparked protests this month in Jakarta, where a group torched Malaysia's flag and threw stones at its embassy. The case has touched a raw nerve in Indonesia, which has previously argued with Malaysia over who claims the rights to folk music, batik textiles and spicy beef Rendang curry.
