I See. I Like. I Blog.


Here’s a collection of photos showcasing a series of traditional Malay dances. This is my first attempt at dance-photography, so please excuse the (numerous!) imperfections.

I’ve decided to make a music video presentation to enhance the cultural experience. The featured song, Joget Serampang Laut, is a popular classic played in Joget dance performances.

There are 3 distinct dance forms displayed in the video, namely, Zapin, Inang and Joget; each with its own accompanying music, unique tempo and movements. And like many other Malay folk dances, these dance forms are heavily influenced by foreign cultures which include Arabic, Portuguese, and Javanese. Each one is identifiable by the State of its origin: Zapin from Johore, while Inang and Joget are reminiscent of the Malacca Sultanate era in the 15th century.

Enjoy the video 🙂

    I love the ‘Serampang Laut’ joget and the way you ‘choreograph’ your montage. I know that making a video is a painstaking project; and demand times. Yet, you did it weel 😉 I like it! Looking forward for more videos, perhaps the one with you doing ballet at the edge of a mountain somewhere in China? :-p
