Sape is a traditional string instrument of the "Orang Ulu" ethnic group of Sarawak. It looks quite simple but produces a beautiful and complex music. We are watching Jerry Kamit playing the traditional song of the Orang Ulu with his sape. He is a well-known sape player who used to perform all over the world. During the Rainforest World Music Festival which is usually held in Kampung Budaya, Kuching, Jerry is among the world's artists performing a superb sape music. The Rainforest World Music Festival is such a dazzling event where artists from across the globe participate in it.
I like listening to this music because it reminds me of our diverse culture. In the state of Sarawak, there are more than 40 ethnic groups each with its own unique culture. Nature is so close to my heart and this music also reminds me of nature. I am proud to be a Sarawakian staying in "The Land Of The Hornbill" with the oldest rainforests in the world.
