CASEH podcast on Javanese culture 

Episode 1 : CASEH-PERZIM WITH PROF DR NORIAH MOHAMED (Javanese Ethnic Culture and Heritage Expert)

Javanese culture in Malaysia is the culture of the Javanese people who actively migrated to the Malay Peninsula in the 19th and 20th centuries which is known as 'boyongan'. Concerning this, the migrants bring with them various aspects of Javanese cultures comprising tangible and intangible aspects such as Gamelan music, traditional dances, and the art of Wayang kulit shadow play and Javanese classic literature. The process of cultural assimilation with the locals, however, still preserves the original life tradition of the Javanese customs like 'gotong royong', 'kenduri slametan' and other aspects of artistry. Nonetheless, the aspect of Javanese literature (Cerita Panji) also greatly influenced Traditional Malay literature like Hikayat Hang Tuah and Malim Deman. In this 1st podcast series, the aspects of these Javanese culture assimilation into the Malay culture are unveiled.
