Balinese Dancers - INDONESIA

This is the second card Raihan sent me - a group of Balinese Dancers getting ready for a performance. I'm watching on youtube some traditional dances from Bali and they're amazing, I particularly like the way they open and move their eyes! Thank you very much Raihan for this awesome double swap. This postcard took 24 days to arrive!
  
Balinese Traditional Dancers - INDONESIA
  
Balinese dances are a very ancient dance tradition that is a part of the religious and artistic expression among the Balinese people, native to Bali island, Indonesia. Balinese dance is dynamic, angular and intensely expressive and express the story of dance-drama through the whole bodily gestures; fingers, hands and body gestures to head and eyes movements. Most of dances in Bali are connected to Hindu rituals, such as the Sanghyang Dedari sacred dance than invoked hyang spirits that believed to possess the dancers in trance state during the performance.
