Kecak dance in Uluwatu @ Bali, Indonesia

Kecak dance is a Balinese dance usually performed by men. Also known as Ramayana Monkey Chant, the piece, performed by a circle of 150 or more performers wearing checked cloth around their waists, percussively chanting "cak" and throwing up their arms, depicts a battle from the Ramayana where the monkey-like Vanara helped Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana.
