Dongkang Menek Biu- Kayu Mas Style Gender Wayang


Dongkang Menek Biu means "The Frog Climbs the Banana Tree." 

Below is the gender wayang transcription of Dongkang Menek Biu from the Kayu Mas style of Gender Wayang. I learned this piece with Pak Wayan Suweca. Pak Suweca and his son, I Nyoman Gede Hariana, can be found playing in the accompanying Youtube video.
