Kalimaran Fest to only showcase Murut culture

KOTA KINABALU: Kalimaran Fest 2008, which will be held for two days beginning today in Tenom, will only exhibit original Murut art and culture, said Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.

He said the decision was made to preserve the originality of Murut art and culture from being mixed with other ethnic entities.

“This is why we decided to minimise the exhibition on other community art and culture,” he said here recently.

He said the approach was aimed at giving an opportunity to the Murut ethnic group, as well as visitors and tourists, to enjoy real Murut culture.

Masidi said the Kalimaran festival, which means art festival in the Murut language, would be held at the Murut Culture Centre in Kampung Polong, Tenom.
