Music of the Forest: Songs of the Orang Asli is part of the VOICE OF ASEAN: BEYOND BOUNDARIES Exchange Program.
TRAXXfm takes you on a journey to the rainforest to discover the rich cultural significance behind Sewang Songs handed down from generation to generation.
From the Temiar Tribe in Gua Musang, the Semai of Perak, the Temuan in Negeri Sembilan to the Jakun in Pahang, we will embark on a journey to experience and try to understand the significance of the Sewang and what it means to the Orang Asli community.
There are also short titbits on interesting facts about other facts related to the Sewang and the daily lives of the Orang Asli.
This program is produced with collaboration with our sister station ASYIKfm.
This is Malaysia's contribution and is part of the Voice of ASEAN: Beyond Boundaries Exchange Program which will also be aired in Brunei, Thailand, Singapore, Myanmar, Vietnam, The Philippines, Laos, Indonesia and Cambodia.
