    Apparently there are some places in the World that think dancing is a sin. "Inul Daratista's now famous ngebor, or rapidly rotating "drill" dance, has won her millions of fans across the archipelago over the past few months", but apparently the Indonesian Ulemas Council has banned her performances. Inul sings dangdut, a form of folk music with Indian and Atrabic influences. Apparently, they are saying that sexy dancing incites rape. I don't know about you, but you can bet I'll keep Salsa dancing.
