The fishermen of this region have a number The Funeral Portrait - Opeth - In Live Concert At The Royal Albert Hall (DVDr) superstitions.
One of them is not wearing anything green when going out to sea because green is the royal colour of the Spirits of the Sea. Another is to touch the water when arriving at a fishing spot, and asking permission from the Spirits before throwing in the net. Other superstitions include ritual bath ceremonies, sacred offerings, and even worship to the Spirits of the Sea.
While most, if not all of these sacraments are no longer practiced in Malaysia today, one particular myth has evolved into a cultural dance masterpiece.
This is the legend of the Ulik Mayang. The story of this dance began a long time ago. According to legend, a band of fishermen living on an island off the coast of Terengganu went out to sea one evening to catch fish. They rowed their sampans narrow wooden boats far out to sea where suddenly, they encountered a terrible storm. All the fishermen were tossed violently into the sea, where each of them struggled to keep their heads above the water and swam with great difficulty towards the shore.
Eventually, they tired out and submitted themselves to the mercy of the raging waves. A stormy night passed and the next day, the bodies of the fishermen washed up to the shore. Miraculously, the fishermen woke up one after another, thankful to be alive. Almost all that is.
One fisherman remained in a deep state of unconsciousness. He remained motionless, as if dead. The other fishermen were saddened by this, as he was a great friend of theirs.
They suspected that while physically he was on the beach, Concerto For Oboe And Orchestra In C Major, KV 314 - Vladimir Kurlin, J.
Haydn*, W.A. Mozart*, Lenin soul might have been enticed to wander into the another world. And so they summoned a bomoh shaman to bring their friend back. The bomoh prepared several items for the summoning ritual. Among them were kemayan incensecoloured rice and mayang pinang strings of areca nut flowers.
Night fell, and the ceremony to revive the lost fisherman began. Shaking the mayang pinang palm frond and chanting over the body of the fisherman, the bomoh falls into a state of trance, and discovers that the fisherman has been You Are My Lucky Star - Liza Minnelli • Robert De Niro - New York, New York (Original Motion Picture Wawawee - Ulek Mayang a spell by playful Spirits of the Sea.
A Spirit Princess had tried to charm all the fishermen, but only Wawawee - Ulek Mayang surrendered to her seductive beauty. He now wanders in a state of daze in her world. The Wawawee - Ulek Mayang Princess is garbed in an exquisite traditional dress with a beautiful yellow sash shawl. Her hair is held in an elaborate French pleat and she wears earrings of fine ivory.
The bomoh attempts to bring the soul of the fisherman back to earth. Sensing that her grip over him is slipping, the princess summons her sister, and the two of them put charms on the fisherman. In a fierce battle between the medium and the spirits, two more sisters are summoned to charm the fisherman, and then two more.
A fearsome battle between the bomoh and six Spirit Princesses erupts and shakes the world. The earth quakes but the steadfast bomoh battles on. As the clash built up towards a devastating climax, a seventh — the eldest — Spirit Princess enters the showground. Learning of the mischievous behaviour of her sisters, the eldest Spirit Princess puts a stop to the battle.
The fisherman awakens. From then on and until the introduction of Islam in Malayaofferings were ritually presented to the Spirits of the Sea, whom the fishermen once worshipped. Over the years, this story has evolved into a number of versions.
Nevertheless, they all tell of both the treacherous and caring relationship between the fishermen and the Spirits of the Sea. The legend of the Ulik Mayang is unravelled in an amazingly choreographed folk dance, which was once a form of spiritual worship, but now performed purely for cultural appreciation and entertainment purposes. Most popular in the state of Terengganu, the dance is accompanied by its song which is both haunting and vigorous.
While the music of the song has several contemporary interpretations to it, as seen in the Malaysian movie Spinning Gasing directed by Teck Tan, many dance troupes prefer a composition of traditional instruments. These include traditional drums, gongs, seruling a flute and rebab a bowed lute. Yes, the ritual song is Wawawee - Ulek Mayang beautiful but when Islam arrived the ritual was banned.
However, some believed that certain group of fishermen still use the ritual when they felt necessary. About 20 years ago, my uncle went to Terengganu and witnessed the ritual. It was Wawawee - Ulek Mayang at night by the beach and no one was allowed to go to sea that night after the ritual is held. My uncle said that the night after the ritual was done was so eerie.
