Sinrilik a is an oral art form from South Sulawesi (specifically the region of Gowa and Maros) sung in the Makasar language by a singer known as a pasinrili, with the action conveyed by the actors to the music of the keso-keso (rebab). The topics revolve around heroism, religion and love. Both the music and the story are improvised and mange to elicit emotions, a sense of beauty, and humor.
