Have You Ever Seen Kecak Dance In Bali ?

One of the most famous Balinese dance is The Kecak dance. The magnificent voice of the dancers in the musical rhythm is used as background for them to dance in trance. More than 100 bare-chested dancers are swaying their bodies and hands. The sound of cake-cake-cake imitation of the sound of monkey sounds exotic and dynamic atmosphere. Because of those vocals sound of "Cak-cak-cak", then the dance is named Kecak.




What makes the Kecak dance in this fascinating look at the fifty or so men in the squared pants. They are both the choir and the props, the music for the story in a series of constant vocal chants that change with the atmosphere of those involved. They are still not, or they wave their arms to simulate fire, and again around the podium to represent wind and fire, prison cells, and the invisible hand of protection of the gods.

The dance is played in five acts and lasts about 45 minutes. It comes from the Hindu epic Ramayana, which tells the story of prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, who was kidnapped by the evil king of Lanka, Rahwana and in one way or another with the help of the white monkey army, Rama rescuing his wife and defeats the evil king Rahwana.

As Bali is famous for its breathtaking nature, culture, it's even better; entirely surprising. It is very exotic and unique. The culture is a mixture of spiritual, dynamic and elegance. Attending a Kecak recital is a must for any visitor to Bali. It is a wonderful experience, and a window into the musical and artistic culture that the Balinese a special people.
