During the Rainforest World Crafts Bazaar, they were selling a lot of handcrafts including the sape.

The sape is carved from a single block of wood and has 2-5 strings. It is a significant musical instrument among the Orang Ulu “upriver people” community during their festivities.

The sape.

And I have here a performance by Tuyang Tan Ngan. He was strumming an ‘electric’ sape at the crafts bazaar.
