Kecak Dance

The Kecak dance is one of the most famous of Balinese dances, it is unusual because it has no musical accompaniment like many other Indonesian dances do, the rhythm of the dance is produced by the chanting 'monkey' chorus. The chanting noise of "Cak-cak-cak" gave the dance its name Kecak. The 50 man chorus arrange themselves in a ring around a flame, to produce a stage. The men not only provide the rhythm for this dance but also act as the various monkey armies that are featured in the story and as the undulating snake in one of the scenes.

The story line of the dance is taken from the Ramayana epic that tells of the evil King Rahwana using trickery to kidnap Rama's wife Dewi Sinta, and how with the help of the white monkey army, Rama rescues his wife and defeats the evil Rahwana. The dance however is not a traditional Balinese dance it was developed in the 1930s in the village of Bona specifically for western tastes. If you get the opportunity to go to a Kecak dance go because it is an experience not to be missed.
