Folklore festival faces bright future

There wasn't an empty seat to be found at the Seremban Municipal Council field on Saturday night as local culture mixed with its international partners in a colourful and vibrant display of dance and music.

Even a heavy shower of rain did not stop those spectators vying for the best view as the event was opened by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

Artists from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Mexico, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Nigeria then danced and sang alongside local artists from Negri Sembilan, Perlis, Penang, Johor, Kelantan and Malacca for more than three hours.

Entry to the event was free and those who wish to visit Negri Sembilan in the future should mark it down on their list of things to do because it was awesome, with a smooth transition through the night from group to group.

Smiles were aplenty as the crowds cheered everything from "Bangla Boys" Bollywood style to Yemenese clap dancing and the beautiful Malay candle dancing. Can't wait till next year.
