Description

The cultural heritage in Malaysia can be traced back to the pre-establishment of Malaysia as a  modern nation. Some of these intangible heritages have existed for hundreds or even a  thousand years. These surviving cultural heritages, including Rebana Kercing of Kampung Laut, face a similar problem: extinction. The cultural problem in Malaysia is not a unique problem of its own, as the same deterioration happens to the cultural heritage of other nations. The infusion of elements from modern and popular culture into every traditional heritage, including Rebana Kercing, has caused the cultural situation in Malaysia to become more complex. Kelantan considered a cradle of Malaysian culture with its distinctive Malay tradition and culture, is noticed by the permeation of modern and popular culture. Technology, where entertainment can be accessed from the comfort of home, has gradually led to the performing art of Rebana Kercing being forgotten. The little effort of documentation of this book will assist in preserving and conserving the Rebana Kercing of Kampung Laut from extinction.
