Kecak Dance in Uluwatu Bali

The sun had just disappeared on the western horizon. But hundreds of people packed the seats at Uluwatu Temple in Bali Island to watch Kecak Dance. "Kecak" is derived from an old Balinese ritual called the sanghyang - a trance dance driven by its participants' repetitive chanting. In its ancient form, the sanghyang communicated the wishes of the gods or of the ancestors. No musical instruments are used in a kecak performance - instead, you find about thirty bare-chested men sitting in a circle, uttering "chak… chak… chak" rhythmically and repetitively. The total effect is trance-inducing - repetitive voices and outlandish costumes creating a trippy multimedia experience. For me, it's nice travel experience watched Kecak Dance with ACI detikcom
