Ewa Bule


Watch as Hamilton Children's Choir render a Dikir Barat performance of Ewa Bule (Kelantanese for Wau Bulan, Moon Kite, a traditional Malay kite). From a video uploaded by Dean Norwani. In addition to choral singing, Dikir Barat incorporates movement (not dancing) and hand percussion.

The choir was apparently coached by an Ipoh lass who started with acapella and jazz, tutoring at Damansara Jaya Secondary School, to obtaining her Masters and PhD, and now conductor with the Grand Philharmonic Youth Choir in Canada.
