Selangor International Indigenous Arts Festival 2020 (SIIAF 2020)
1 August, 2020 - 2 August, 2020
Selangor Indigenous Arts Festival 2019 showcased the rich and diverse cultures of Malaysia’s Indigenous tribes through cultural dance performances performed by the Mah Meri and Temuan tribes from Selangor, Semai tribe from Perak, Seletar tribe from Johor, and the Borneo Sabah and Sarawak tribe. One of the most unforgettable performances was by the Mah Meri tribe with their amazing Masked Dance performance.
What was more compelling, international indigenous tribes from Africa, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Chinese Taipei, and South Korea were specially-invited from their origin countries, enabling city-dwellers to learn and have a closer look on their customs, cultures, traditional attires, artwork pieces, crafts and languages, and watch them perform live.
SIIAF is one of the initiatives to elevate and preserve pure gems of the Selangor State, the Indigenous people, who are still practising their unique traditional cultures and customs, despite the fact that modern technology has taken its toll on the society. SIIAF 2019 was right-up-the-alley in establishing the State of Selangor as a preferred tourist destination with one of its core strengths in cultural tourism, focusing on the diverse cultures and the arts. The glorious annual event is no stranger to foreign media, as its uniqueness in cultural focus entices global attention, which provides exposure to Selangor’s hidden gems in particular.
