Langkah & Tingkah
NUS Arts Festival 2006 | The Courtyard | 11 Mar 2006

Sri Mahligai performed a solid 50 min set of uptempo joget, ronggeng and a slew of joget moden songs as well as accompanying 3 dance groups from Teater Tari ERA, Sriwana and NUS Ilsatari in the next 45 minutes.

Encouraged by a boisterous and responsive crowd of mostly young NUS undergrads, the show was well-received. NUS Ilsatari dance group receives a deafening and thumping applause and cheer from homeground supporters, even before they step onto the stage. A total of 5 dance items were dished out with Sriwana performing the opening makyong item 'Awal Bismillah' and 'Zapin Karimun', Ilsatari with 'Inang Lenggok' and Teater Tari ERA with 'Zapin Budi' and the closing item 'Rindu Dalam Bayangan'.

The show ended with audience and dancers get together for an impromptu social dance amid the familiar tune of Serampang Laut.

Tub-thumping!
