Tari Zapin -
Zapin is a Malay dance form that is popular in Sumatra (Riau Province, Jambi province, Riau Islands Province, North Sumatra, and Bangka-Belitung Islands). It is believed to have been introduced by Arab, Muslim missionaries from the Middle East in the fourteenth century. It used to be performed exclusively for religious ceremonies but through the years it has become a form of traditional entertainment.
