Traditional Malay dance music from Malacca

The colourful and artistic movement of the traditional dance from Malacca was rooted back since the 15th century. apart of the heavy Malay influence there are also influences from the indigenous Malay, Arabs, Chinese, Indian and Portuguese. Following are some examples of the dance captured using Samsung S2. The quality of the sound is not as good as the videos. The youtube has function to minimise the video movement disruptions.

The raining day at Tg Malim won't stop me from seeing the concert. I know something special would come out of it. To my surprise the African Dance is really amazing. Wow, the students beautifully dance and sings to the song.. So did the Latin dance not disappointing to see too. The Blues is one of the best part. Apart of the mixed songs in the end which is great. Meanwhile the alien icon really make his statement that he likes music from his experienc of the earthling performance from all over the world. Bravo to all the students, teachers and performers for the beautiful performance... Keep it up.
