Ni Luh Menek was born in Jagaraga, North Bali in 1939. She achieved extraordinary fame as a kebyar dancer, primarily through her interpretations of Taruna Jaya, learned directly from its two creators, Pan Wandres and I Gede Manik. She started dancing at the age of ten and first performed Taruna Jaya in 1954, at the age of fifteen. These early performances gained her immediate fame, and many groups throughout the island asked her to perform.


Palawakya revival
In 1995, she was invited by the Semara Ratih troupe in Ubud to perform the piece Palawakya, which features a dancer playing solo the trompong and simultaneously reciting poetry known as kakawin. Menek helped to revive this piece and it is now performed all over the island. Her principle is art for the people’’. She will perform anywhere and help other gamelan and dance troupes who need her to teach.
