As with many traditional songs, Gai Bintang is a children’s play-song.  Playing together, young boys and girls sing as they imagine reaching high into the sky to touch the stars and moon.  Gai Bintang is sung by the Madurese people who comprise about 7.5% of Indonesians making them the third largest ethnic group in Indonesia.
