Listen to a brief sample:
Every Balinese village has an annual festival where the local people celebrate life. There is music, dancing and wonderful food. The festivities often go on for several days, with performances of classic theater such as the Ramayana, a classic Hindu epic or traditional shadow puppet shows go on late into the night. The people from the village carry elaborate offerings to the temples to give thanks and to ask for blessings. This is where we’re going today. Let’s get out the pretty batik sarongs and begin!
