Boros Kopongukaban (Introduction)

It is with great pleasure that I present to you this page devoted to the language of my native ancestors, the Kadazan Dusun folk of the North Borneo. The Kadazan Dusun languages are such beautiful languages to be left behind… yet, that’s what happened. Many of the new generation nowadays know little about the languages. I hope I can contribute in any way, to place, to grow and to keep the interest of the young generation to learn and understand more of our Kadus Languages. This might be just any page that you can find in the internet, but this is the small thing that I could do to contribute. Let's keep this language live within our souls through music.

John Gaisah - Taragang Rasuk

Song title: Taragang Rasuk
Singer: John Gaisah 
Song & Lyric by John Gaisah 

Ooi taragang rasuk
pointutuno oku da ngaran nu
ooi taragang rasuk
waro noh nangku sanganu nu.

Muhang oku dah diya
nga orosian oku monokiboros
lebih-lebih podi
pointalad ko dilo tapa nu.

Muli ko nopo taragang rasuk
sumalam poh laid id doho
miruba kito do hari anam
moi kito intong do wayang

Ooi taragang rasuk
miandad kito do muli
mongoi okupo pogihum
korita sakaian kito muli.

Malay Translation

Si Baju Merah (Taragang Rasuk)

Hai si baju merah
bolehkah kutahu namamu
hai si baju merah
adakah kau sudah berpunya.

Aku suda terpikat padamu
tapi ku takut mahu bersembang
lebih-lebih lagi
kamu duduk sebelah bapamu.

Bila kau pulang si baju merah
jangan lupa bersalam denganku
berjumpa kita di hari Sabtu
nanti kita pi tengok wayang.

Hai si baju merah
kita pulang bersama-sama
marilah kucari dulu
kereta tumpangan kita pulang.

This is one of the best song by John Gaisah. Composed and sung by him but unfortunately he or his family is not gaining anything though once upon a time the owner of Seh Huat Recording made a promise that his 3 children will get royalties and will be paid RM1000 a month until they reach the age of 21. I still believe that either Seh Huat or Sabah Record still owes such to the late John's family.

Did you ever see this agreement before ?

Mungkin ada asas dakwaan royalti lagu2 John Gaisah tidak diberikan seperti mana yg sepatutnya kepada waris mendiang. Ketidakadilan terhadap waris John Gaisah yang disuarakan oleh Atama dalam lagunya tidak mungkindibuat tanpa penyelidikan.
