Zapin Folk Dance of the Malay World

By Mohd Anis Md Nor

Oxford University Press, 1993. Hardcover. Very Good/very good.

Building on research in various parts of Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, he attempts to uncover the origins of this dance form, how it has taken on its own local variations and how it took on a new life after being incorporated, with foreign additions, such as the cha cha and samba, into Malay films in the middle of the 20th century. 166 pages with a bibliography and index. Weight 0.7kg. Post free within Malaysia The dust jacket has minor wear and the cover has a bit of wear along the top and base edges.
