Music in Tradition was held on February 4, 2023, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. within the Miri Artisan Market at Coco Cabana.
Visitors to this session were able to engage and interact with the cultural practitioners and experience their performances live and in person.
With Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak as the main sponsor, this session was completely free for anyone in Miri to attend in person. It was also live-streamed on the Facebook pages of MYY Living Arts and Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak. “Music in Tradition,” a project collaboration between Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak and MYY Living Arts, celebrates and highlights artists who are working in the space of their own cultural heritage—either in its original form or their contemporary interpretations. Additionally, the general public would have the opportunity to interact with the practitioners directly.
One traditional music from the various ethnic groups that make up Sarawak, particularly those who are from Miri and its surrounding areas, were included in each “Music in Tradition” presentation. This time around, MYY Living Arts is working together with Pertubuhan Pusat Aktviti Warga Emas (PAWE) Sibuti in organised the showcase on the rarely highlighted “Muzik Sedaman” from the Kadayan community.
