The traditional musicians playing traditional musical instruments such as Bumadius (Dau We), Su Nonggek (Dau Na), Jang Tolong (Tuma) and Abda (gong) that existing as mostly percussions music without vocals; felt like one being carried out to nowhere-land crossing the sky of clouds under the wave of winds and landed finally, in the seventh heaven for being kind, being wiser and being brave for living the life in prosper or worse being told through these ethnomusicology  – as Jubata the opening, Samoko (Samoko Lamut) followed by Bawakng  or Pulo Pinang seems sounded like something you never heard before coming out of the jungle of Borneo and the ritual itself didn’t lasted long but will permanently, taken your half of your heart and feelings left there with the beautiful ancient civilized music in high taste made by the talented inland people of West Borneo.
