Alena Murang releases “Warrior Spirit” music video. Fondly known as Sarawak’s Sape’ sweetheart, we see another side of Alena that is fierce and strong.  Released on YouTube, the music video is the work of the same team behind Alena Murang’s award-winning music video “Midang Midang” (2019), directed by her cousin, Sarah Lois Dorai, and co-produced with production house Project Room.

 

Warrior Spirit, shows the strength within, “we come from a line of warriors and heroes,” shares Alena, who is of dayak Kelabit descent, “my great great great grandfather Balang Nganud was a great warrior, the community called him ‘the Tiger that floats enemies’ heads downriver’. Though we no longer practice that anymore, we inherited their spirit, their courage, their strength; and more over, the courage to fight together for something greater than ourselves. I think many Malaysians, and people across the world also, can relate to the spirit of the warrior.

 

The looks and styling for the music video were mainly inspired by Alena Murang's cultural heritage and that of the peoples of Borneo, mainly Sarawak, styled by Styllar and working with Malaysian designers and craftswomen, and make up artist Gebriel Padan.
