http://www.engagemedia.org/Members/toysatellite/videos/TS-SG01-EP04-Sape-Master.wmv/embed_viewI was fortunate, very fortunate to meet one of the few remaining masters of the Sape, an instrument indigenous to Borneo. The Sape Master, who was taught in the forests of Sarawak, is widely known throughout Malaysia having also performed internationally.

The Sape Master is one of several micro-docs from the series, Sarawak Gone. Sarawak Gone debuted at AGITPROP, the international film festival of people’s struggles, in Manila, July 2011.
