Magalang Magunatip dance video

Another Sabah dance that will make your feet moving instantly according to the rhythm , but this time it is the rhythm of the bamboo. This Magalang Magunatip or Bamboo dance video recorded when I am visiting Monsopiad cultural village in Penampang, Sabah. Magalang Magunatip is a Murut dance. Its normally performs during any festival. This dance get his name from the word "atip" which mean trapped. You feet maybe will get trapped by the bamboo when the rhythm became faster.



This is a dance, that need you master skill and timing in jumping and putting your feet between the clapping bamboos without being trapped. This dance does not usually require any instrumental music because the rhythmic clapping and stamping of the bamboos produce a loud, harmonised, beat and interesting sound or rhythm. Nowadays, most cultural show will add gong and kulintangan sound to make the dance more interesting. The clapping of bamboo will become faster and faster when it come to the end of the show. But they will make it slower for beginners that want to try this dance.

Anyone of you try this dance before? When the dancer called everyone to try this dance, once again I don't have a guts to try this one. I know I am not a good dancer but as a Dusun, we need at least know our dance, Sumayau. Maybe one day, I need to go to dance class to learn some cultural dance. Without us learning our own culture and dance, maybe one day it will be gone by itself, right? Since no one learn the dance and nobody will know how to do it in the future. That is not a good thing.

Chayo-chayo....

Bamboo dance is almost the same with our folk dance, The tinikling. It is a very interesting dance. BTW thanks for visiting!

Right we have this kind of dance for well trained dancers called Tinikling. Actually Tinikling is Philippines National Dance.

I could not imagine our neighboring country has this kind of dance, too. :)
