A Precious Gift From The Past

The Central Perak District is the heartland of Malay culture in Perak.  Besides its history, it is deep rooted in culture seldom found elsewhere. 

The Rebana Perak which is a hand-held drum and traditional dances such as tarian dabus, tarian bubu and lotah are a few of the cultural items that visitors will find in this area.

The Art of Drum Making

As testimony to the rich cultural and musical past of the Perak Tengah region, the making of Rebana, or Malay drum, is still in existence, with some modernisation but basically utilising the methods passed down over the generations.

An entire cottage industry revolves around the making of these drums, located at Kampung Teluk about 1 km. away from Kampung Gajah.

In peace as it was in battle, in humble villages as they were in the sultan's palaces, these drums held an important and respected place in the traditional culture of the Malay people of Perak.
