Kecak dance in Uluwatu, BALI.
A Kecak performance is very simple. The men's chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak, in rhythm, over and over again, For this reason they are called the Kecak or Cak dance. The Kecak dances consist of about fifty men wearing only a loin-cloth, the upper part of their bodies left bare. They form rows of circles, in teh middle of which is a coconut oil lamp. The Kecak dance is performed for dance-dramas and the story presented is take from the Ramayana epic.

Hello, Hasan -
Very good light management here, in a difficult light situation - and a beautiful sunset sky for inspiration. The silhouettes are good, and form a diagonal pointing to the woman's head. The balding man's head in fg could use a bit of burn brushwork to get rid of the reflected flash.

Magnificent moment only to be experienced by oneself by actually being there.
The sunset as the backdrop adds to the drama.
I was there recently too but the sunset wasn't of desired colours. It was cloudy.
