Artists from the Talang Mamak ethnic group (semi-nomadic Malay forest dwelling people) perform on the gendang (double-headed drum) and gong to accompany a demonstration of the local style of the art of self defence. The Talang Mamak traditionally served the local Malay court of Indragiri, and in 1984 they still maintained contact with its royal descendants.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Near the town of Rengat on the upper reaches of the Indragiri-Kuantan river<br></div>
