Colourful ending to Borneo cultural fest

SIBU: The Borneo Cultural Festival culminated colourfully on Saturday night with “exotic” international performances and fireworks display.

Two arts troupes from South Korea performed traditional dances while a Japanese group entertained with a dragon-lion dance.

The highlight was provided by performers from Mongolia, who treated the 30,000-strong audience to their renowned khoomi (overtone) singing and music performed with traditional instruments such as the horse-head violin.

An acrobat from the Mongolian troupe also thrilled the packed crowd at the Town Square here with her agile performance.

Musicians, dancers and singers from Vietnam also took to the stage to perform folk songs and dances as part of the finale.
