MUSIC AT ILHAM
TARIAN ASYIK
7 JULY
3:00PM

Tarian Asyik is a Kelantanese court dance that traces its roots to the Sultanate of Patani during the reign of Ratu Kuning (Yellow Queen) in the 17th century. According to the legend from the Hikayat Patani, the dance was created to entertain the grieving Yellow Queen over the loss of her favourite bird. It is also said to have been the most beloved dance of the legendary Kelantanese princess, Puteri Saadong. Over time, the dance became popular among common people and is now used as folk entertainment during festivals and marriages.

The Tarian Asyik presented by Pusaka is performed by the dancers of Jalinan Seni Tanah Merah, Kelantan, accompanied by musicians led by master gendang player, Pak Su Agel.

TARIAN ASYIK

Tarian Asyik ialah tarian balai diraja dari Kelantan yang berakar umbi dari Kesultanan Pattani abad ke-17 di bawah pemerintahan Ratu Kuning. Menurut lagenda dari Hikayat Patani, tarian ini diciptakan khusus untuk menghiburkan hati Ratu Kuning yang berduka akibat kematian burung kesayangan baginda. Ia juga dikatakan tarian yang paling disukai oleh puteri lagenda negeri Kelantan, Puteri Saadong. Semakin lama tarian ini kian mendapat tempat di kalangan golongan rakyat biasa dan kini dipersembahkan sebagai hiburan rakyat di majlis-majlis perayaan dan perkahwinan.

Tarian Asyik dibawakan oleh PUSAKA dan akan dipersembahkan oleh penari-penari dari Jalinan Seni Tanah Merah, Kelantan, dan diiringi pemuzik yang diketuai Raja Gendang, Pak Su Agel.
