Ulek Mayang Lyrics

Ulek mayang ku ulek
Ulek dengan jala jemala
Ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan tuannya puteri
Ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan jala jemala
Ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan puterinya dua

Puteri dua berbaju serong
Puteri dua bersanggol sendeng
Puteri dua bersubang gading
Puteri dua berselendang kuning
Umbok mayang diumbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Nok ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan puterinya empat

Puteri empat berbaju serong
Puteri empat bersanggol sendeng
Puteri empat bersubang gading
Puteri empat berselendang kuning
Umbok mayang diumbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Nok ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan puterinya enam

Puteri enam berbaju serong
Puteri enam bersanggol sendeng
Puteri enam bersubang gading
Puteri enam berselendang kuning
Umbok mayang diumbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Nok ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan puterinya tujuh

Puteri tujuh berbaju serong
Puteri tujuh bersanggol sendeng
Puteri tujuh bersubang gading
Puteri tujuh berselendang kuning
Umbok mayang diumbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Nok ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan tuannya puteri

Tuan puteri berbaju serong
Tuan puteri bersanggol sendeng
Tuan puteri bersubang gading
Tuan puteri berselendang kuning
Umbok mayang diumbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Nok ulek mayang diulek
Ulek dengan tuannya puteri

Ku tahu asal usul mu
Yang laut balik ke laut
Yang darat balik ke darat
Nasi berwarna hamba sembahkan
Umbok mayang ku umbok
Umbok dengan jala jemala
Pulih mayang ku pulih
Pulih balik sedia kala

Background of the Song:

Tarian Ulek Mayang is another worshiping dance in the Malay dances. The dancing always begins with a person who is suffering from illness either when he catches fish, in the paddy field or any other daily activities in the society.

The patient will then healed by a bomoh, a traditional Malay doctor in the traditional way. Seven actors beautifully dressed represent the 7 princesses who come to visit the patient when the bomoh is treating him. Kemayan will be burnt together with chanting of pantun and dancing through the whole performance. Sometimes the rebab and seruling are also used to accompany the singing which is in the form of rhymes and poems

Although Tarian Ulek Mayang was once a folk ritual ceremonial in the Malay society, with its gentle and graceful movement, it has become one of the beautiful traditional dancing in Terengganu culture.

Discussion about the Song:

Dancers move in a circle, waving leaves known as mayang pinang, until they faint in a trance. Sometimes the rebab and seruling are also used to accompany the singing which is in the form of rhymes and poems. (Normah Abdul Hamid 1978).

Our local singers should utilize this cultural elements more in local movies. We have great minds but we should improvise it well.

This movie was a great attempt.

unfortunately the general Malaysian public seem to be, uhm, ignorant? All they want is more and more of Saiful Apek and stupid A Razak Mohaideen movies (Anak Mami etc).

And sadly that’s what they’re getting.. :( karl5511 (4 months ago) Show Hide 0 Marked as spam

About the Movie:

Synopsis of Spinning Gasing

Harry Lee (Craig Fong), the protagonist, returns to KL with news that he has failed in his studies. His autocratic, typically Chinese father is disgusted, and Harry leaves home after a major argument with him. Western-influenced, Harry has faith neither in religion, nor in his mixed-up Chinese roots. He does not have the same ambitions his father had for him: what Harry really wants to do is form a dance-music band and land a major recording deal. Deep down, Harry is determined to prove that he is no “failure”.

Yati (Ellie Suriati), Harry’s childhood friend, is a modern city girl in her early 20s. Although Yati adopts a fashionable lifestyle, she has been raised to believe in her Malay culture and Muslim religion, both of which are under threat in this fast-developing country. Once upon a time, Yati used to sing Syair (traditional Malay poetry). Her personal perspective is a balanced one; she observes her religious rites, but is in no way a fanatic. Harry forms a new band, which comprises Yati, Chantal (a glamorous Eurasian singer), Ariff (a gay keyboard player) and JJ (an Indian percussionist and tabla player).Harry is having an affair with Chantalan ex-stewardess, the kind of woman first-class passengers give Rolex watches as gifts in the hope of securing a date. Chantal, meanwhile, is on a single-minded quest for fame and fortune, and will do almost anything to get there. Yati wants to warn Harry about Chantal, but is afraid to get involved, as she herself has feelings for him. She realizes it will not be an easy mix if they get together: different ethnic groups, contrasting faiths – Yati and Harry are like two ‘gasing’, spinning around each other, hoping not to collide
