Hot Feet – Ubud on the island of Bali Indonesia

There’s a variety of cultural shows to attend every night in Ubud.  This photo is from the Kecak Fire and Trance Dance. It consisted of about 50 men all chanting this tune with no accompaniment while the story of the dancers played out in front of us. At the end they lit a big pile of coconut husks on fire and let them burn high like a bon fire.  A man is put in a trance by the 50 men choir of chanting. He then can walk through burning coals.  He didn’t just walk through once, but at least 10 times.  A colorful, and HOT show.
