CHE WAN NOORSAIDI BINTI CHE WAN AB RAHMAN @ MOK ZAH

Che Wan Noorsaidi binti Che Wan Abdul Rahman, more intimately known as Mok Zah, is the 9th generation that inherited the Saba performing art from her late father who was also an artist and practitioner of the Saba medicinal art. Since childhood, around the 70s, Mok Zah had been exposed to Saba ritual performances.  She often accompanied her father when performing Saba rituals for the purpose of healing the sick. The Saba ritual has now developed into a performing art that can be performed by all by abandoning the healing ritual elements and keeping the artistic elements such as dance, song, music and dialogue. Mok Zah is the only Saba Arts Figure that can perform the dance well and knows the Saba stories. Among her achievements in championing the Saba arts is being awarded the Cultural Art Figure 2018, State of Terengganu Artistic Figure Award 2015 and Oral Figure Award 2016.
