Leveraging on the Sape’s popularity among youths in Sarawak and in Malaysia as a whole, Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak will come up with a four-day Sape Camp to be held on June 19– 22 in Kuching.

It is targeted particularly at youths of different races who would like to pursue Sape and make it part of their wider musical instrument portfolio.

This project is specifically centred on the YPS corporate objective of reaching out to our target audience, the youth of various races.

YPS aims to bring them together as part of a unique strategic intention, using Sape as a uniting factor to pursue their musical interests and careers of our young people in Malaysia.

This legendary Sarawak’s native instrument will be the bonding factor among these young musicians, and together they will build their musical interest under the common banner of Sape.

Camp’s objectives:

  1. Bringing youths from all races together to know more in depth, learn, and play Sape makes it a common uniting factor and thus part of YPS’ strategic ideals.
  2. To share information on Sape’s origin, history, and appreciation in the music industry.
  3. Sape musical composition
  4. Exposure to Sape making and design selection.

It will indeed be a milestone for YPS to leverage this camp to project its corporate branding and imaging to our stakeholders, the public, and youths in particular.

The closing ceremony will be graced by His Excellency, Chairman of the YPS Board of Trustees, and also the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, Tun Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud, on June 22 at the Borneo Cultural Museum.

To mark the end of the camp, the Sape ambassadors will do a mini-concert called the Evening Unity Concert on June 22, from 7:30 p.m. onwards at the Godown Amphitheatre at the Kuching Waterfront.

The hour-long concert will feature these ambassadors dressed in their full traditional costume taking the lead in the Sape evening stage show.
