Ulih aku nguji nyaut tanya nuan nyak?

a) Ngajat Induk (who,what,when,where & how it performs)
– tu ajat orang indu, bugai ngau gerak ia mesti lembut baka manuk indu. Peda ajat ba tu internet. Tutor DAM bisi alam youtube. Tauka beli VCD kajat ANP.

b) Ngajat bebunoh (who,what,when,where & how it performs)
– tu ajat raja ngau bujang berani (pahlawan), nyadi gerak ia baka ke benong bamok ngena duku ilangtauka nyabor ngau terebai. Bisi alam youtube ngau VCD ANP.

c) Ngajat Lesong (who,what,when,where & how it performs)
– ajat ngetup tauka manggom lesung ngena ngeli. Bisi alam youtube ngau VCD ANP.

d) Ngajat Semain (who,what,when,where & how it performs)
– Selalu ia ajat indu semain baka kena ngalu temuai tauka pengabang. Bisi alam youtube ngau VCD ANP.

Bisi ga ajat semain lelaki ngau indu maya niti ruai nikike pengabang.

Peda aku ba Youtube bisi ajat panggau libau ti seraban bala lelaki.

e) Ngajat Berayah (who,what,when,where & how it performs)
– ajat berayah kena ngerandang ngau ngelalau jalai alu taboh ia ngena gendang rayah, ukai taboh ajat rama.

f) Ngajat “Ngemai antu pala”
– Tu enda kala aku ninga ajat tu. Enti naku antu pala bisi tang tu ukai ajat, semina leka main aja. Ari ni nuan bulih bengkah ajat tu?

Tu ajat orang indu tauka lelaki?

Enti maya mai antu pala pulai ngayau, engka orang lelaki ngajat alu megai igi balang ia kini, engka atas perau ba luan tauaka ba tanah baka ba kerangan.

Udah nya, antu pala disuah agai orang indu baka bini tauka ambai. Engka nyak alu ngajat kini sida ke nerima igi balang nyak tanda gaga ati bulih ayam ti pemadu manah baka leka main naku (nyangkah) ti muji orang ke bulih dengah nyak.

e) Perbezaan antara ngajat indu ngau laki
– Amatkah ajat orang indu lembut agi ari ajat lelaki.

Ajat indu enda tauka jarang ngena senjata enda baka ajat lelaki ti selalu ngena duku ngau terebai tauka pinggai, pinggai ngau kerubong strum kena ngetuk pinggai bemunyi. Bisi ga kala meda indu mincing pereca maya ngajat tang nya aja.

Tang ajat indu endang bisi nganyun ke jari ari tisi ke moa baka manuk nitir.

Gerak ajat lelaki mayuh nunda gerak burong kaki kenyalang alu enti maya ngetas buah ranyai, ulih nunda gaya kenyalang ngulihke buah ngena paroh iya ti panjai.

Musical & Dancing Heritage

Iban music is percussion-oriented. The Iban have a musical heritage consisting of various types of agung ensembles – percussion ensembles composed of large hanging, suspended or held, bossed/knobbed gongs which act as drones without any accompanying melodic instrument. The typical Iban agung ensemble will include a set of engkerumungs (small agungs arranged together side by side and played like a xylophone), a tawak (the so-called ‘bass’), a bendai (which acts as a snare) and also a set of ketebung (a single sided drum/percussion).

The Iban as well as the Kayan also play an instrument resembling the flute called ‘Sape’. The Sape is the official musical instrument for the Malaysian state of Sarawak. It is played similarly to the way rock guitarists play guitar solos, albeit a little slower, but not as slow as blues. One example of Iban traditional music is the taboh.

The Ibans perform a unique dance called the ngajat. It serves many purposes depending on the occasion. During Gawais, it is used to entertain the people who in the olden days enjoy graceful ngajats as a form of entertainment. Iban men and women have different styles of ngajat. The ngajat involves a lot of precise body-turning movements. The ngajat for men is more aggressive and depicts a man going to war, or a bird flying (as a respect to the Iban god of war, Singalang Burong). The women’s form of ngajat consists of soft, graceful movements with very precise body turns. Each ngajat is accompanied by the taboh or the body.
