Dondang Sayan is a traditional Malay art that combines elements of music (violins, gongs and tambourines or the tambour), songs and chants, featuring beautiful melodious strains of poetry. Based on tradition, Dondang Sayang performances are accompanied by music and sung by two singers of the opposite sex, who sing in quatrains. Performances are open to all, and the art strengthens community bonding by conveying positive messages and sharing feelings of love, joy and sorrow. Performances are held regularly, especially during gatherings, festivals and parties.
