One of the most famous Balinese Dances is The Kecak dance. The stunning voice of the dancers in musical rhythm is used as a background for them to dance in trance. Over 100 bare-chested dancers are swaying their body and hands. The sound of cak-cak-cak imitating the sound of monkey sounds gives the outstanding and dynamic atmosphere. Due to that chanting noise of "Cak-cak-cak", then the dance is named Kecak.
What makes the Kecak such a fascinating dance to watch are the fifty or so men in the checkered pants. They're each the choir and the props, supplying the track for the story in a series of regular vocal chants that trade with the mood of the actors. They don't sit still, either, they wave their arms to simulate fire, and reposition themselves around the stage to represent wind and fire, prison cells, and unseen hand of protection from the gods.
The dance is performed in five acts and lasts roughly forty five mins. It taken from the Hindu epic Ramayana, which tells the story of Prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, who has been kidnapped bythe evil King of Lanka, Rahwana and in some way with the army assist of the white monkey, Rama rescues his wife and defeats the evil King Rahwana.
As Bali is famous for its breathtaking nature, the culture is even better; completely astounding. It is very exotic and unique. The culture is a blending of spiritual, dynamic and elegance. Attending a Kecak recital is a should for any traveler to Bali. It is a wondrous experience, and a window into the musical and artistic culture that make the Balinese a special people.
