Tauh pupuh lun merar ma’on; 
We are our ancestors.

Alena Murang is a Borneo-born Dayak-European living in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), who sings in the endangered languages of Kelabit and Kenyah. Dayak are the native people of Borneo. She is one of the first women to play the sape', a lute instrument from Borneo traditionally (pre-1930s) reserved for male healers. Deeply influenced by the lives of her ancestors, coupled with influences of rock and folk, her shows are a journey of past and present, along the mighty Baram river that runs from the coast to the highlands of Borneo, through the world's oldest rainforest. Alena is also a dancer, sape' teacher and visual artist.
