Sherry Loves: Engka by Ethnic Transmission

This is my favorite Iban song ever.

It’s a song by Ethnic Transmission. Wanna know who are they? This is an excerpt of them from their page:

…Ethnic Transmissions (ET) is an alternative/indie Iban rock band formed in 2004 in Kuching, Sarawak East Malaysia (Borneo) & consist of Macmillan Jua Lungan (vocals & guitars), Dennis Jonathan Fraude (keyboards), Daniel Ading (lead guitars), David Barieng Jacques (drums) and newest member Norman Ading (bass)…”

Engka

Dini nuan, kini nuan, bisi enda lama lalu nuan lenyau
Aku berunding, nama kebuah, nama ti ngasuh nuan ke nyau

Engka nya, engka tu, ngasuh tua baka tu

Chorus:
Engka, nuan sigi sayau ka ku, tapi nuan malu, nadai nemu nyebut, kati ngatur jaku, ka madah ke aku, tauka
Engka, nuan sigi nadai ati, nuan enda peduli, nadai madah kini, ninggal ku kediri,
Engka nadai guna, aku ngiga, utai ti sigi, nadai ba dia,

Ku ka ninga, nama berita, nama gaga nuan gerai tauka enda
Tulis surat, kirim meh salam, ngambi ku nemu pagila lusa

Engka nuan teperasa, laban laya tua suba,

Chorus:
Engka, nadai ku di peda nuan, engka ku berumban, mai nuan bepangan, minta ampun sulu, semua penyalah ku, tauka
Engka, nuan kala patah ati, nuan alit ati, nuan enda berani, nuan enggai beraie agi

Ulih ka nuan ninga, ati aku ngumbai, padah meh kemaya, nuan deka pulai

Chorus:
Engka, nuan sigi sayau ka ku, tapi nuan malu, nadai nemu nyebut, kati ngatur jaku, ka madah ka aku, tauka
Engka, nuan sigi nadai ati, nuan enda peduli, nadai madah kini, ninggal ku kediri,

Engka nadai guna, aku ngiga, utai ti sigi, nadai ba dia

See? They are really really good. Make no bones about it. Ethnic transmission rocks! :)
