Bali, Indonesia No. 3

Halo teman!

Here goes my third card about Bali! Thank you Sergio!

This card shows Kecak Dance!

Kecak is a form of Balinese dance and music drama, it originated in the 1930s Bali and is performed primarily by men, although a few women’s kecak groups exist as of 2006.

Also known as the Ramayana Monkey Chant, the piece, performed by a circle of 150 or more performers wearing checked cloth around their waists, percussively chanting “cak” and throwing up their arms, depicts a battle from the Ramayana where the monkey-like Vanara helped Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana. However, Kecak has roots in sanghyang, a trance-inducingexorcism dance.

Great card!

I send love!
