This dance is based on the story of two brothers, the Kings – Subali and Sugriwa, who were turned into monkeys. The two lived in peace until they both desired a black magic brought by Dewi Anjani. Dewi Anjani’s father threw this magic into a river that transforms humans into monkeys. Subali and Sugriwa not realizing this jumped into the river and were transformed into monkeys. Not recognizing each other, they fought. Neither brother won the fight but finally they recognized each other and were sad.
