Come and experience the vibrant colours and dances

of the indigenous groups of East Malaysia.

Very often the dance movement depicts nature,

life in the jungle, movement of thebirds and other daily activities.

The uniqueness of the dances from Sabah and Sarawak can

also be seen in the beautiful costumes of both the dancers

and the musicians. The costumes are very ornate,

often with an elaborate headgear and other accessories

like beads, chains and coins that indicate the tribe

of origin and status within the tribe.

The musical instruments are also

different from that of west Malaysia.
