It is also known as the “monkey chant” dance due to the “chak-chak-chak” sound made by a chorus of male performers, who represent an army of monkeys. The dance tells the story of the Hindu epic Ramayana, specifically the part where Prince Rama and his brother Lakshmana are aided by a group of monkeys led by Hanuman in their quest to rescue Princess Sita from the demon king Ravana.

The dance is accompanied by gamelan music, which adds to the dramatic effect. The movements and gestures of the dancers, along with the chanting and music, create a mesmerizing and captivating performance that is unique to Bali.
