We do everything together. Our motto is "United we stand, divided we fall". It means "together we are stronger". Now, let me introduce my friends one by one.

Sweety Firsty". Her father is French. She is tall and slim. She's about 171 cm. She has long
straight hair. Actually the color of her hair is blonde. However, she dyed her hair black since last year. She has beautiful blue eyes, an oval face and pointed nose.

He won so many prizes on Math, Chemistry and Physic competition. However, his favorite subject is Chemistry. He wants to be a chemist someday.

him laugh. I wonder what it is in his head for he can create jokes spontaneously. Jonathan's
nick name is Jo. He is plump. He's about 168 cm tall. His weight is 80 kg. That's why we call him "The Big Jo". He has a round face with brown eyes. His spiky hairstyle makes him easily recognized.

      About me? Well, my name is Hana. I'm the shortest one among them. I'm about 160 cm tall. I have long wavy hair with round face. My friends call me "The Chubby Hana" because I also have a chubby check. Most people, even my parents say that I'm a careful, generous and diligent person. They also say that I'm a bit sensitive.

Kecak Dance
Kecak (pronounced [?ket?ak]) is a form of Balinese music drama, originated in the 1930s and is performed primarily by men. Also known as the Ramayana Monkey Chant, the piece, performed by a circle of 100 or more performers wearing checked cloth around their waists, percussively chanting "cak" and throwing up their arms, depicts a battle from the Ramayana where the monkey-like Vanara helped Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana. However, Kecak has roots in sanghyang, a trance-inducing exorcism dance.
Kecak was originally a trance ritual accompanied by male chorus. German painter and musician Walter Spies became deeply interested in the ritual while living in Bali in the 1930s and worked to recreate it into a drama, based on the Hindu Ramayana and including dance, intended to be presented to Western tourist audiences. This transformation is an example of what James Clifford describes as part of the "modern art-culture system" in which, "the West or the central power adopts, transforms, and consumes non-Western or peripheral cultural elements, while making 'art' which was once embedded in the culture as a whole, into a separate entity."Spies worked with Wayan Limbak and Limbak popularized the dance by traveling throughout the world with Balinese performance groups. These travels have helped to make the Kecak famous throughout the world.
Performer, choreographer, and scholar I Wayan Dibia cites a contrasting theory that the Balinese where already developing the form when Spies arrived on the island. For example, well-known dancer I Limbak had incorporated Baris movements into the cak leader role during the 1920s. "Spies liked this innovation," and it suggested that Limbak, "devise a spectacle based on the Ramayana," accompanied by cak chorus rather than gamelan, as would have been usual.
17.     What is meant by kecak?
a.   Balinese music drama

18.     from which the drama in the Kecak is taken?

e.   Correct All
20.     Where is Kecak from?
