Indigenous musicians gather in Malaysia

Hundreds of musicians trying to keep traditions alive perform at Rainforest World Music Festival.

    The Rainforest World Music Festival in Sarawak, East Malaysia, showcases indigenous music from around the globe.

    Hundreds of indigenous musicians face an uphill battle to keep their traditions alive while trying to compete with commercial music.  

    Many say that letting go of their music would risk their tribe losing touch with its past.
