"Kecak Dance" One of The Most Popular Dances in Bali
The Province of Bali is indeed famous for its diversity of traditional dances, and one of the most famous dances is the Kecak dance.

Kecak dance can actually be witnessed by tourists in a number of places in Bali, but the most popular show place among tourists is the Kecak dance which is staged every evening in Uluwatu, when the sun sets. Of course, the beauty of the sunset panorama is a charming backdrop when around fifty male dancers perform this dance. There were no sounds from the accompanying musical instruments, instead the voices of the dancers accompanied their own dances.

In the beginning, the kecak dance was a song that was the result of a combination of sounds that formed a melody. Usually this song is used to accompany sanghyang dance which is considered sacred and can only be performed in the temple. It was only around the 1930s that this dance began to be developed by an artist from Bona Village, Gianyar by including a part of the story from the Ramayana story into the form of drama and dance. Since then this dance can be displayed outdoors as a performing art. The part of the Ramayana story that plays in this dance is when Dewi Sinta is kidnapped by Raja Rahwana.
