A Jambi traditional dance, Zapin Berayun performed by over 4,000 students of an early childhood education program (PAUD), broke another record at the Indonesian Museum of Records (MURI) at Jambi town hall, Jambi, on Sunday, Dec. 9.

Jambi Mayor Syarif Fasha said this was actually the city’s fifth MURI record.

“We have set the record annually since 2014,” Syarif told Antara.

Wearing Jambi batik, children from 11 districts across Jambi took part.

Syarif said the costumes worn by the dancers had been made from 4,000 meters of batik fabric. “[The costumes was made by] local batik artisans,” he added.

The event was held to introduce traditional culture to the younger generation.

Yusuf Ngadri, a senior manager at the MURI, said, “It is also to encourage the public to continue to appreciate and preserve our local culture.”

According to the Jambi Culture and Tourism Agency, Zapin Berayun is a Malay dance that was influenced by Arab culture. It has evolved over the years because many people of Melayu-Arab descent still live in Jambi.

Zapin Berayun has long been used as a medium for dakwah (Islamic preaching). It used to be performed only by male dancers prior to 1960. (wir/kes)
