A Minangkabau folk theatre show exploring identity and tradition, a symphonic cross-cultural marriage between Chinese/Malay percussion, East and West stringed musical shows, multimedia light performances, art exhibitions and culture-centred forums.

That’s just a sampling of TripArt's programme, a public-private collaboration between the CIMB Group, Cultural Economy Development Agency (Cendana) and Yayasan Hasanah, the foundation of Khazanah Nasional Bhd.
