Tadau Kaamatan – Pesta Kaamatan – Kaamatan Festival – Harvest Festival

Welcome to Sabah, Land below the Wind yahoo… in this week most of other place in Sabah, already start their Kaamatan. Then what is Kaamatan Festival..? Ahh.. you don’t know… me too heheheh… Ok ok.. From my title post, actually all the word has the same meaning.

What is Kaamatan Festival? In the kadazandusun culture, “Kaamatan” or other word “Magavau” is the special festival or celebration to respect the “Bambazon” also known as paddy spirit. This tradition is always being performed long and long long…….time ago until now days it became a special holiday in Sabah, just to celebrate this Kaamatan Festival. Thanks to Tun Haji Mohd Fuad Stephens or Donald Stephens, was the first Chief Minister of the state of Sabah in Malaysia. Why? He was the man who brings this Kaamatan Festival as a special holiday in Sabah and being approved by Majlis Undangan Kerajaan Koloni since 1960. Yeah…..holiday..30th and 31st May. There is lots activity in Sabah like, Sugandoi (Singing Competitions) , Unduk Ngadau (Beauty Contest) , Mipulos (Arm Wrestling) and more.

Well as you know, Kaamatan refers to paddy, harvesting period, which is from the traditional rituals culminating and finally to Kaamatan or Magavau or Harvest Festival. (In Bahasa Pesta Kaamatan) There several rituals stages, Bobohizan or Bobolian (ritual specialist) play an important role in the rituals stage. You can read more about the stages (CLiCK HERE).

Now days, Bobohizan or Bobolian (ritual specialist) are become less, most of the generation already forget about it. This is because of the modern era now become more high level and the religion like Christian and others also playing role. Hehehe… anyway.. in Sabah 30th and 31st May is the holiday for Kaamatan, there is lot of activity. I hope I can go and visit Kaamatan Festival at other place like Hongkod and my friend’s house.

Sompoton

Now I bring music instrument inside my blog. Hehe.. Let’s start with “Sompoton” one of the traditional music instrument in Sabah. Many researchers from west say that “Sompoton” is similar to other instrument from India and Africa but other people also say that “Sompoton” is come from Japan because we also can get this instrument from Japan Country. This is “sompoton”, it is looks like “Bag-Pipe” that created by people from Scotland. The different is how to play, sound effect and the item or ingredient that’s been used to make this instrument.



This is the name of each part of this music instrument. There is “Lombohon” first and second, “Korandabit Atas” and “Korandabit Bawah” which is refer as up and down “Korandabit”. Others four short pipes called “Kombitan”. This entire pipe are tie together using Rattan, also we called it “Rotan” in malay word. All pipes are made from “Sumbiling” one kind of bamboo type that we can get from Ranau to Keningau Sabah area. Lastly, we used “Sopinit” to stick all pipes with a dry empty skin gourd. Anyway.. this is simple “sompoton” and it is much different with other pro and advance instrument.

This is how "Sompoton" sounds look like, but the introduction is using other music instrument called "Bungkau" heheh..the rest is "Sompoton".

I just remember where I put my cat’s teeth

This story was happen long time ago, during that day when I was wake up always in 9 am. I just wonder why “Parsi” mouth has a little blood. Then, I look it from far away, actually not so far just behind the door hehe.. “Parsi” cannot take his food and cleaning is body, like it does in everyday. I just feel pity with “Parsi” action so I came closer.

When I look what happen to “Parsi” mouth, it was bleeding then one of his teeth are broke but still hanging in front of his mouth. Maybe that piece of teeth takes some time to drop it by itself but I just can’t see “Parsi” action that uncomfortable, so I decide to help “Parsi” to take out his teeth. Then, using my hand I manage to take “Parsi” teeth out that hanging in front of his mouth. Hehe..In the beginning I just use some tool but it is hard to capture “Parsi” teeth that is small and “Parsi” became scare then what to do I just use my hand.

Now I just remember where I put my cat’s teeth, here is the picture. I add some ruler so we can make some measurement. Getting to know my all cat’s name :D from the older post, “Parsi” is one of them.

Now "Parsi" always look happy as usual and love to play with me
