From the always awesome WFMU Blog, comes this clip from the 1992 film Baraka.  What you’ll see is a Ketjak (or monkey chant) which is a sonic re-enactment of the battle between Prince Rama and the evil King Ravana that’s depicted in the Ramayana.  Dig on some further info here

If you’re wondering why those terms might be passingly familiar to you, the battle in question (in which Rama and his monkey horde descend upon Ravana’s castle) is also part of Sita Sings the Blues series (which is also based upon the Ramayana epic) by Nina Paley.
