MESRA presents Gentarasa 2016, a Malay cultural and musical performance. Gentarasa 2016 (Genggaman Jati, Menyulam Masa – Weaving Self Through Time) illustrates the various renditions of Malay traditional performing arts such as Mak Yong, Dikir Barat, Randai and many more. These traditional art forms and dances are reframed to reflect the vibrancy and dynamism in our modern society. Despite the struggle to keep the essence of Malay cultural identity alive, these art forms has gripped through time and influence the fabric of the Malay community and values in our everyday lives. Through injects of technology, the performance is set to showcase the underlying values of familial piety, multi-racial, and social cohesion.
