Rainforest World Music Festival Day 2 part 2
Part 2 of day 2, night mode! RWMF night time gets alive with more visitors.
Back to the Big Tent we have local Sarawakian talents performing.
The really slap themselves hard, like ouch! But for music, their sacrifices are worth it. ><
Rituals of Aceh. The Saman dance is part of the cultural heritage of the Gayo people of Aceh province in Sumatra. Dancers clap their hands, slap their chests, thighs and the ground, click their fingers, and sway and twist their bodies and heads in time with the shifting rhythm - in unison or alternating with the moves of opposing dancers. A rare and visual treat. (RWMF booklet)
At this point, the crowd grew by a lot! Almost 8-9k people I heard.
I even learnt a new song from them. Crowd engaging musicians.
The last show that I watched before leaving will be OYME. Did not manage to catch At Adau as the final show.
That's all folks! Stay tune for day 3!
Wow! The slaps on their chests are really something. But like you said, it is for their souls-music. :DReplyDelete
