Purchase Sabah Fest tickets early

Tickets for the Sabah Fest this May 2-3 are selling fast and the organisers have urged the public to purchase theirs early to avoid disappointment.

Sitti Damsal, general manager of Sri Pelancongan Sabah Sdn Bhd said tickets can be purchased at the Sabah Tourism Board as well as Sri Pelancongan, adding that a limited number of tickets will be sold at the entrance to the venue at Magellan Grand Ballroom, Sutera Harbour Resort.

With the theme "Mystical Sabah", the one-hour show on both nights will highlight the various ethnic groups of Sabah through a presentation of traditional song and dance combined with rarely-seen rituals and scenes.

Among the rituals is the Mamahui Pogun (Cleansing of the Universe) by the Tantagas (High Priestess of the Lotud people of Tuaran).

A special segment on "Tamu Culture of Sabah" will also be presented highlighting the sacrificial offering made in the olden days before a 'tamu' commences.
