Description: An 85 year old Kenyah plays the 'sape', a traditional musical instrument used by many of the Orang Ulu (upriver people) in Borneo. Sapes are carved from a single bole of wood. Originally, the strings were made from the Sago tree but now nylon strings are used. He made this one by himself using wood from the 'jelutong' tree (dyera spp).
