Attraction of 6,000 Likurai Dancers from Belu and East Timor Wins Muri Records



The Likurai dance performed by 6,000 dancers on the peak of Fulan Fehan hill in Dirun Village, Lamaknen District, Belu Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), Saturday (28/10/2017), received an award from the Indonesian Record Museum (MURI).

Muri Indonesia Record Manager Triyono said, the reason his side gave the record was because the Likurai dance only existed in Belu and Malacca Districts, and the dance was performed by 6,000 dancers from two countries, namely Indonesia and Timor Leste.

The award was handed over to the Belu Regent, Wilybrodus Lay and witnessed by the Minister of the Interior Tjahjo Kumolo and Indonesian House of Representatives Herman Herry during the commemoration of the youth oath day and the Fulan Fehan Festival, on Saturday.


According to Triyono, MURI also appreciated the Belu Regional Government for maintaining the original culture of the local community by holding the dance.



The likurai dance was staged on the top of the hill of Fulan Fehan, at the peak of the 2017 Youth Oath Day commemoration led by the Minister of the Interior Tjahjo Kumolo.

The Likurai dance is a war dance typical of the people of Timor Island, especially in Belu and Malacca Regencies. The dance is usually performed by women while beating tihar (small drum).
