Kecak is actually not an ethnic dance. It is based on sanghyang - a trancelike exorcistic dance. It was choreographed around 1930 by a german primitivist painter Walter Spies and Wayan Limbak an indonesian dancer. FunkyKovalPoland10

Kecak's roots come from an Indonesian ritual chant. When Spies arrive he work with the locals to choreograph a show for westerners. It depicts a battle in which a monkey-like being helps a prince fight an evil king. KimConnecticut, USA2
