Gamutra To Perform At Sarawak Gong Festival

BESUT, Nov 11 (Bernama) — Gamutra, the traditional music ensemble from the east coast of the peninsula, will perform for three nights at the Sarawak Gong Festival in Kuching from Nov 18.

Besut Cultural Council Secretary Rozali Embong said the musicians would perform a range of traditional songs using traditional instruments from the east coast states.

Among the instruments are the rebana ubi, long drums, kertok, Mak Yong drums, drums used in shadow play called geduk, gongs, flutes and rebab, most of which are not found in Sarawak.

“This is the first time that the east coast traditional music will be performed in Sarawak. The performance will also feature traditional songs such as the Ulek Mayang, Rodat and Dikir Barat,” he said.

He added apart from Terengganu, a traditional music ensemble from Negeri Sembilan would also take part in the festival with their rebana ubi performance.
