Sounds from the East


Sounds from the East showcases live music performances by bands hailing from the beautiful states of Sabah and Sarawak, offering a mesmerizing fusion of healing sounds, tranquil melodies and rich cultural heritage. The programme features Bamboo Woods, Pinanak Sentah and At Adau, each band presenting unique indigenous cultural influences, infusing their music with a deep sense of authenticity and history. Performances will also see the use of traditional instruments in contemporary arrangements and the blending of ancient melodies with innovative compositions. Together, Sounds from the East is a powerful tribute to the rich musical heritage of East Malaysia’s indigenous communities, preserving and celebrating their vibrant traditions.

Sounds from the East also offer festival-goers and local residents an avenue to deepen our understanding of East Malaysia and strengthen our ties to Malaysian cultures and heritage. The family-friendly event is more than music; there will be food and nature – the perfect opportunity for families, friends and children to spend quality time together while learning about each others’ culture and our shared heritage.
