Established since 2016, ‘Rentak Selangor’ programme aims to revitalize the intangible cultural heritage found in Selangor, from old traditions that survived the test of time, to the modern-style live performances enjoyed by youngsters. How does the programme do it? It is by providing an engaging platform that showcases local art performances and allowing eye-opening discussions between cultural heritage experts from various communities within the state.
Compared to other parts of Peninsular Malaysia, Terengganu is less crowded and its rural areas are almost unperturbed and sleepy, which explains how local culture and traditions remain intact.
Travellers can expect a truly relaxing, local-centric destination that is far away from the deafening cacophony of the metropolises.
Selangor is the epitome of cultural melting pot of various ethnic groups such as the Malay, Chinese, Indian, Orang Asli (Peninsular Malaysia’s aboriginals), Javanese, Banjar, Bugis and Minangkabau. Each upholds a unique cultural identity formed through customs and traditions that are passed down from one generation to another. One facet of these thriving legacies is their unique performing arts.
The ‘Rentak Selangor‘ programme is the collaboration between the Committee of Rural and Traditional Villages Development, Malay Customs, Culture and Heritage; the Selangor State Government State Economic Planning Unit (UPEN), and the Majlis Kebudayaan Negeri Selangor (MKNS) as well as Gaya Travel Magazine. It is hoped that the programme can create awareness towards Selangor’s cultural diversity and turns the state into a hub for art, culture, and national heritage.
From outstanding local culture to amazing natural wonders, Terengganu continuously brims with exciting offerings for travellers.
