Alena Murang

SOLAR STAGE

Alena Murang’s music draws on her heritage and shares stories in native languages of Borneo. Her music evocatively captures the lyrical, mystical essence of native traditions endangered by rapid, relentless modernization. Alena’s alluring, mellifluous voice lends an angelic purity and ethereal dimension to the earthy simplicity and soul-soothing quality of these enchanting longhouse ditties. She is also one of the first and few females to play the sape' and her consummate skill on it and other instruments like the pagang (tube zither) gives a polished sheen to her entire production. Her one-of-a-kind performance is exactly what we look forward to in The Fields.
