[Malay CultureFest 2018] Lintas Nusantara: An Archipelago's Prayer (Nusantara Berdoa)


This year’s Lintas Nusantara will feature dances from Aceh, Java, Kalimantan and Kelantan that are rooted in ritual worship. The 2018 edition will feature highlights such as the mystical and ancient Makyong, and traditional Dayak dance Sakaleki.
