I finally got the chance to join in the celebration of Sabah Fest!
After years of being blur, not knowing such an amazing festival existed
and also always missing it due to bad timing..
so being able to go and see this festival is truly a blessing!
Be amazed by their musical production as they tell you the story of Aki Arusap,
an old Murut warrior who had a premonition of the British arriving in Sabah decades ago.
He takes a trip down memory lane with his grandson Aaron, a city boy.
Rich with cultural dances, instrumental music and colorful traditional costumes,
it never fails to mesmerize me.
My favourite part of the performance?
The Murut's 'Warrior Dance' that involves them to dance over bamboo sticks
showing amazing agility and timing.
