Abstract

“Nora” or “Manora” is a dramatic act consisting of oral expressions, wisdom, and performing arts including singing, dancing, and musical performances. It is a gathering place for many skilled craftsmen as well as a ritual that has been passed down in communities in the South and the Malay peninsula. Even though there were various legends about the origins of Nora, they still shared some common grounds. Manora performances or rituals of each group or locality in the South are unique in each family line. The Nora Rong Khru ritual, which was listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in December 2021, is rooted in beliefs about ancestors, master’s grace, and sacredness that have been practiced for a long time.
