Sarawak, it is the largest state in Malaysia. Those who know Sarawak, it’s a place of history, mystery, romance and adventures. For those who don’t know, its Asia’s best kept secret.
Sarawak is home to more than 27 ethnic groups, each with its own distinct language, culture and lifestyle. Their ancient cultures may differ, but they have one thing in common: their warmth and hospitality.
With a deep respect for their art and culture, as well as those who journey in Sarawak, they are more than happy to share their lives and stories with those who would care to listen.
Because of their warmth in sharing, their art and music have spread abroad as seen in the growing popularity of the Sape or the boat lute, as played by famous Sarawakian Orang Ulu musicians such as Mathew Ngau and AlenaMurang.
Years ago, Sape music was heard only on special occasions such as weddings, cultural events and festive celebrations.
