Prokhas Community Day at Tasik Taman Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Selangor (2009)

With the rapid development of the technology and science, the modern society has slowly forgotten the rich and vibrant cultural heritage of Malaysia. With this in mind, the staff had taken the initiative to organise a programme to relive and promote the art and heritage of Malaysia with the collaboration of Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ). The programme was also participated by the representatives of Istana Budaya, Arkib Negara Malaysia, Jabatan Kebudayaan Kesenian Negara Negeri Selangor and Wariseni Budaya. Many activities were held on that day which include, Dikir Barat competition between 6 schools from the Petaling Jaya area, Senambudaya, free health inspection, traditional games exhibition and quizzes competition for the public. There were also cultural performances such as singing performance by MBPJ cultural artists, wayang kulit performance, Chinese music instrument “Ghu Zheng Solo” performance, Ghazal Fusion musical performance and the Malay music instrument “Angklung” performance.
