Salomon Gau started learning the Kenyah traditional dance and to play sape music during his schooling days. He is a Baram Champion (Male, single) Warrior Dancer and in 2008, partnering Michael Arang Jalong, emerged as the Borneo Sape Champion in Marudi during Baram Regatta. He has performed alongside veteran sape player, Mathew Ngau Jau, at the Rainforest World Music Festival 2014 and 2015, and abroad in Germany, Holland and Belgium.
Michael Arang Jalong was grew up with the people of Long Moh -"the center and heart of all these Traditional Cultural Heritage". He had the opportunity to work side by side with the late Tusau Padan in Kampung Budaya Kuching in the early 1980's. Around 2002, Michael partnered Lian Seling (a humble and gentle senior partner and keeper of lots of cultural information ) and played for Salomon Gau and other dancers from Long Moh in Miri.
