Balinese Hindu trance rituals 7'00
(Trance 2) [Ellipsis Arts]
Recording made by David LEWISTON. During this ritual called ngurek, the participants stab themselves with long daggers, but usually as a result of the powerful muscle tensing in the trance, the blade doesn't penetrate the skin... at least, that's the plan. This is a mere snippet of information from what is essentially a CD-sized book. There just happens to be a disc in the cardboard folds at the back, and WOW! No oil-based plastic for a change.
