Notes: 

A djanger dance is similar to legong. It features rows of singing girls, weaving patterns with their hands. The word djanger means humming, and the name of the dance comes from the hummed or murmured background surrounding the entranced girl dancers. The elaborate headdresses are typically modifications of traditional Balinese wedding and funerary headdresses worn in religious ceremonies.
