Cak or Kecak is a contemporary Balinese dance, a secular dance that its origin can be traced to the sacred Sanghyang dance. This dance was first created by dancers in Bedulu village, Gianyar regency, at the request of Walter Spies. The group was commissioned to devise a new kind of dramatic performance which is based on Ramayana epic, accompanied solely by a chorus like that found in sacred Sanghyang Dedari performance. In that old sacred rite, the choral group consist of perhaps a dozen men, each making distinctive ‘chek, chek, chek’ sound that blend into a complex interlocking rhythmic pattern to assist the dancers in sustaining their trance condition.

Released turtles represent Bali bombing victims
October 13th, 2007

Two-hundred and two baby turtles have been released into the sea at Bali’s Kuta beach, each one of them representing a life lost tonight five years ago.

As the sun began to set, hundreds of people gathered on Bali’s Kuta beach around sandcastles made in the shape of giant turtles and the words “Paddle for Peace” carved out of the sand and filled with pink flower petals.

The baby turtles were lifted out of large buckets with small cups of seawater, and about 80 surfers then followed the struggling reptiles, paddling out beyond the waves and forming the shape of a heart as a symbol of peace.
