Limbai

The Limbai Dance is performed by the Bajau tribe of Bundusan in Papar, Sabah. 6 to 8 dancers dancing in pairs usually perform it. It differs from the Limbai performed by the tribe from Kota Belud, Tuaran, Sabah which is always performed by female members of the tribe, danced during wedding ceremonies. This dance symbolises the life of the traditional Bajau who were skillful horsemen. It also reflects the harmony and the closeness of the members in the tribe.  The fists of the dancers are clenched lightly and there is a flexing and relaxing of the wrist in the dance corresponding with a change of weight with the feet. The male dancers have a lightly somber expression while the ladies perform with a smile on their faces.
