Folk Dance of the Malay World
Mohd Anis Md Nor
This book was written because of the lack of scholarly research on Malay music compared with similar genres in other Southeast Asian countries. Building on research in various parts of Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, he attempts to uncover the origins of this dance form, how it has taken on its own local variations and how it took on a new life after being incorporated, with foreign additions, such as the cha cha and samba, into Malay films in the middle of the 20th century. 166 pages with a bibliography and index.
