Greeting from the Rainforest...(⌒▽⌒)

First of all, i would like to extend my wonderful Thank You to Sarawak Tourism Board for inviting me (us, actually, from the Sarawak Bloggers) to have such a wonderful time even on the first day of the festival.

After press conference around 11am, i'm heading to Bayridge Cafe in Damai Central for some foodie before attending workshops that only started around 2pm.

Workshop that i have attended was;
Location : Dewan Lagenda
Time : 2pm - 2:45pm 
- Interactive workshop about songs and dances from the south of Iran which is called the Bandari Dance and Songs by Mohsen Sharifian and The Lian Band. I came over a slightly late (i've lost my sense of direction.. (◎ヮ◎) hahaha) so my first impression was its actually an Indian dance. After showing us few moves of the dances, we are invited to join and follow the dance which is so much fun!

I didnt stay long because i was actually looking forward to go for another workshop but like i said, my sense of direction is bad (i mean, real bad.. hahaha) Luckily, the workshop that i really want to attend was located just opposite from the Dewan Lagenda.

Location : Iban Longhouse
Time : 2pm - 2:45pm
Songs My Mother Taught Me are songs from different country by representatives from mix performers(Kries, Rafly Wa Saja, Alp Bora, Kila, Lan E' Tuyang, Nunukul Yugera, Rey Vallenato Beto Jamaica, Mohsen Sharifian and The Lian Band and Pine Leaf Boys.)

I find it really facsinating and yeah it's feel so at home.

Once it ended, the next session of workshop start at the same spot. 

Location : Iban Longhouse
Time : 3pm - 3:45pm
Adat - adat Kaum Bidayuh by Madeeh lead by Mr Arthur Borman. Its about music, stories, traditions of Bidayuh people of Sarawak. Madeeh means family relations and they music intruments are handmade bamboo instruments and drum and it has been in the jungle of Borneo for centuries.

After 20 minutes, i make my way back to Dewan Lagenda for a different workshop that i'm looking forward to attend.

Location : Dewan Lagenda
Time : 3pm - 3:45pm
This is another interactive workshop on aboriginal Australian dances by Nunukul Yuggera. They potrayed their unique lifestyle, religions and tribal legends in the performance. They have been called the Australian answer to the New Zealand Haka. What a small world... (^_・)

The next workshop is my favourite... percussions workshop on different drums.

Location : Dewan Lagenda
Time : 4pm - 4:45pm
Instruments Djembe, N'goni drums by Dizu Plaatjies & The Ibuyambo Esemble,Tambour by Chet Nuneta, Sundanese by Rafly Wa Saja,Dayareh - Mrteza Palizdan by Mohsen Sharifian & The Lian Band, Turkish percussion by Alp Bora,Kompang by Shangyin Chinese Chamber Ensemble and Congas by Kila.
