The cendrawasih dance is a Balinese dance, and is inspired by the bird of paradise or cendrawasih bird in Indonesian. In Bali, this bird of paradise is known as "manuk dewata" (the bird of the gods). The dance takes the form of a mating ritual, the attractive and agile motion of the bird, showing off the beauty to attract the other partner.
The Giring-Giring Dance is traditional dance from Kalimantan/Borneo. The dancers wear beautiful regional dress and each carries one or two pieces of bamboo filled with grain. The long slender pieces of bamboo produce a sound when they are moved, and it is this sound that determines the rhythm. The Giring-Giring Dance is a dance offered to the Goddess of Rice and held after harvest as a token of gratitude.
