Sape 

Happy Malaysia 🇲🇾 Day!


We tend to forget our brothers and sisters in Sabah and Sarawak. Their narrative is drowned in Peninsula Malaysia. I grew up not knowing much about Sabah and Sarawak apart from geographical and historical facts for my high school exams. I was fortunate to make Sarawakian friends upon my return, such as Saran and I loved it when she told me about her Lun Bawang heritage.

I was spellbound by Alena Murang’s music and Sape performance. Alena Murang live

So when I heard there was an introduction session for the Sape, I attended it out of curiosity and it was fun.


The Sape is a beautiful wood carved instrument which is a traditional lute.

The music is so soothing and healing.
