Kecak & Fire Dance Performance
Information not currently available.
Approximately 3 Hours
Witness a unique Balinese Dance performance held in your honor. A refreshment is served; then, you will see a performance of the Kecak and fire dances. The Kecak, or monkey dance, is a ritual dance taken from the tale of Ramayana, whose musical accompaniment is supplied by chanting men sitting in concentric circles rhythmically swaying as the costumed dancers weave among them. The fire dance is an exotic dance where men walk barefoot over glowing coals and are accompanied by the rhythmic chanting of up to 50 people.
There is no gamelan (percussion ensemble) in the Kecak Fire Dance as the accompaniment is done solely by human voice.
