Borneo Cultural Festival promises plenty of Iban vibes

SIBU: The Borneo Dayak Cultural Festival (BDCF) to be held as part of this year’s Borneo Cultural Festival (BCF) will feature traditional Iban musical instrument recitals called ‘Betaboh’.

BDCF organising chairman Paulus Banyang said the conventional Kumang and Keling competitions will be staged along with many other competitions.

“These competitions carry Dayak cultural characteristics,” he told reporters after chairing his organising committee meeting recently.

With him were Kumang competition organising chairperson Angelyn Uchi Maseng, Keling competition organising chairman Barieng Balai and Betaboh competition organising chairman Ambrose John.

Paulus said he expected an overwhelming response for all three competitions which promises attractive prizes.
