  5. Ogoh Ogoh ceremony - Bali 6 March 2008

    The Ogoh-ogoh are huge paper mache monsters. They are carried through the streets of every village in Bali during the new year festival, to scare away the resident demons. The music is roaming gamelan orchestras and gongs, and there is a lot of shouting and chanting as well.

    This site really needs the ability to do links.

    The kecak chorus is a mens vocal performance which is meant to sound like a tribe of angry monkeys! Usually the singers sit cross legged on the ground in an inward-facing group and dance with their arms while singing.
