My name is Jona and it is my pleasure to be here as your emcee on this
lovely day in the land below the wind. Sabah, situated in the lovely
Island of Borneo, is one of the 13 states that makes us Malaysia. Sabah
is a land of inspiring natural scenery, lush ancient rainforests, vibrant
coral reefs and mysterious indigenous cultures. There are 32 officially
recognized ethnic groups in Sabah with the largest non-indigenous
ethnic group being the Chinese and the largest non-indigenous group
being the Kadazan-Dusun. Two other larger ethic groups in Sabah are
the Bajau and Murut.

Thank you students of SM Tshung Tsin for the wonderful kompang
playing. Our next performance is the Sumazau dance, an extremely
popular traditional Kadazan Dusun dance that can be considered as the
state dance of Sabah. Originally danced to celebrate a good harvest
during the Harvest Festival, or Pesta Keaamatan, it is often danced now
to welcome visitors and danced at official functions. Ladies and
Gentlemen, you may all sit back and enjoy the show.

Thank you Ali for that lovely recital. Our next performance will be
another exciting traditional dance called the Magunatip. Two long
bamboo poles are held horizontally above the ground at ankle-height.
They are clapped together to a high-tempo drumbeat. Requiring great
agility, dancers are required to jump over or between the poles without
getting their feet caught. Sounds exciting, doesnt it? Ladies and
Gentlemen, may I present to you our Magunatip dancers!
