Gambus is one of the oldest traditional musical instruments played by the Brunei-Malay community. You can play it with other musical instruments such as violin, rebana, flute… There was a Gambus Festival in Papar on last Saturday and Sunday.
On the first day, they have Gulingtangan and Gambus Solo competition. As you know, “my girl” won the first place in Gambus Solo. I got a few more photos of her in the photo album. 🙂

The second day is a lot more interesting. They musicians played the Gambus in group, with all the dancers dressed colourfully, performing on the stage. I was wondering if playing Gambus can make us happy, coz everyone looked so enjoyable and danced happily together (the tourists were also invited to join). Quite pleased with my photos as all the dancers and players got smile on their faces.
