Azhfar Raimi a.k.a. Opah
Royston Kulleh a.k.a. Roy

Opah and Roy are members of Nading Rhapsody; an avant-garde Borneo ethnic music band from Sarawak. They are known as "The Messengers" of Borneo's Legacy, Culture and Heritage.

Their music and choreographed dance moves is distinctive, with avant-garde instillation to the traditional dances, folk songs, poems, ritual chanting, lullabies and myths of Sarawak’s many diverse ethnic groups. Their adaptation of the old practices is deemed as radical and provocative.

Opah and Roy have a shared mission on their passion for performing arts, to rediscover their roots, revive their family’s legacy, and pass on their knowledge and experiences to the next generation.
