Hello Video Lovers,

There is probably no more mysterious and exotic place in the world than Bali. Remote and beautiful, it is home to some unique culture and customs, not the least of which is the unusual Monkey Chant.

The Monkey Chant, also known as Kecak, is a form of Balinese dance and music drama originated in the 1930s which depicts a battle from the Ramayana, an ancient epic poem from Indian literature.

Is it just me, or would it be a whole lot of fun to party with these guys?
