Sarawak Gong Festival Promotes Cultural Society and National Haritage

Sarawak Gong Festival Promotes Cultural Society and National Haritage

Bau, Malaysia - The inaugural Sarawak Gong Festival 2011 being held at the Redeems Centre, Kampung Apar, here can create a cultural society who loves the art of national heritage, said Tourism Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said with the participation of cultural groups comprising the younger generation from various countries including the Peninsula, Sabah and Brunei, the festival could be a platform to showcase the uniqueness of gong-based dance and music.

"Tourists and the local culture should be in tandem as Sarawak has a lot of tribes and ethnic groups who provide the main tourism products in the state and country," he said when opening the festival, organised by the Sarawak National Department for Culture and Arts and Tourism Ministry.

His speech text was read by Tourism Assistant Minister (Local Event and Product) Datuk Gramong Juna. Abang Johari said the festival which involved five invited groups from outside the Sarawak state and eight local groups should be continued in the future.
