Midweek Reflections #3: Mathew Ngau Jau

Hello! I hope everyone is keeping well, staying safe and healthy. It’s been a funny time for myself, as I am sure it is for a lot of people too. While I am keeping well with my wife and kids, limited movement in our living space is something…not very normal for me.

Working with Malaysia’s Living National Heritage

We have the honour of working with Mathew Ngau Jau, a Kenyah Sape master performer and maker. The opportunity to learn and understand his passion and drive in the instrument and the Kenyah culture is something that does not come along easily.
