Abstract:
Experience beautiful melodies, enjoy exuberant dancing and listen to meaningful vocals that make for a true Zapin experience. As one of the five basic Malay dances, Zapin promotes the revitalization of cultural heritage such as the unique form of traditional silat and the artisans of traditional crafts like the marwas (drums), selodang (oud) and even the wau (kite). This event will also explore the similarities and differences between Malay cultures in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
