    Bali Dancer Known for Monkey Dance Dies

    The Associated Press
    JAKARTA, Indonesia
    Wayan Limbak, a Balinese dancer who helped create the island's famous Monkey Dance, has died, a news report said Sunday. He was 106.

    Working with German painter Walter Spies in the 1930s, Limbak adopted a traditional exorcism ritual to invent the dance, known in Indonesian as Kecak.

    The dance features a chorus of bare-chested men making monkey sounds. It is popular with tourists visiting Bali, part of the Indonesian archipelago.

    Limbak died Friday of a suspected stroke at a hospital in Gianyar on Bali, the Jakarta Post said. He was to be cremated Monday, it said.

    Limbak helped popularize Kecak and shape Bali's image as an exotic cultural paradise by taking his dance troupe to several international festivals.

    He is survived by four children, 22 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild, having outlived his three wives.
