The Padangtegal Wenara Wana Foundation has historically strived to develop and implement management objectives that will both maintain the sacred integrity of the monkey forest and promote the monkey forest as a sacred site that is open to visitors from around the world.
Welcome to Kecak Fire & Trance Dance By Taman Kaja Community
What makes the Kecak special is that the accompanying music is provided by the human voice, the gamelan suara,
a choir of a hundred men or more sitting in concentric circles, swaying, standing up, lying prone as the story develops.
Amongst the swaying masses the voices of the storytellers can be heard telling the unfolding tale.
