Kecak Trance Ceremony

Kecak was originally a trance ritual accompanied by male chorus. Kecak is a form of Balinese music drama, originated in the 1930s and is performed primarily by men, although a few women’s.

As the sun sets during the performance, and the sky darkens, the story builds to a climax – a moment when a monkey king sets fire to a castle. With the orange flames and embers in the middle of the stage, it’s a dramatic moment.
