Tarian Asyik is a Kelantanese court dance that traces its roots to the Sultanate of Pattani during the reign of Ratu Kuning (Yellow Queen) in the 17th century. According to the legend from the Hikayat Patani, the dance was created to entertain the grieving Yellow Queen over the loss of her favourite bird, and is the most beloved dance of the legendary Kelantanese princess, Puteri Saadong. The dance became popular among common people and is now used as folk entertainment during festivals and marriages. The Tarian Asyik presented by PUSAKA at the Ilham Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, is performed by the dancers of Jalinan Seni Tanah Merah, Kelantan, accompanied by musicians led by master gendang player, Pak Su Agel.
