bulabulay mun? How are you?

Greetings after greetings from the same ocean
are dedicated to you who protect your homeland with your life.

Mountains and oceans still remember
the history of tears and bloods that has been swamped by waves.

Heaven and earth never forget
those who have guarded with their lives

Ancestral spirits!

The history is still waiting.

One day eventually,
the sun can stop weeping!

Tjimur Dance Theatre adopted the “e ne lja sinvaudjan a nia qati” from Southern Paiwan to reconstruct this historical battle that has been forgotten as time goes by. We walked in step like soldiers going to war. With the ever-changing rhythms of the ancient ballad, once again, we shouted to heaven and earth. Shouldn’t those who defended their homeland a hundred years ago be carved in history?
