Who doesn’t know and love dikir barat ? You know, ewau bulan, ewau bulan? Dikir barat is  a group presentation from Kelantan. Each group is led by leaders known as the Tukang Karut and the Tok Juara.  Both of them take the lead in singing while responding to poetry (pantun), followed by members of the group (awak-awak) singing in unison (chorus) in powerful voices.

While Asian culture is often appropriated needlessly, it’s a refreshing change to see a local form of art being represented in a respectful, beautiful way. Needless to say, netizens were proud and happy as well and the positive comments have been pouring in.

Another proud Kelantanese:

” This is amazing, Dikir Barat has reached western countries!”

While it’s amazing to see Western countries honouring our culture, it would be more amazing to see Dikir Barat being performed at an international stage. What a day that would be for Malaysians!
