The Zapin dance was creatively believed to be introduced by a Muslim missionaries that came from a Middle East during a fifteenth century. Although in a past it was usually achieved by masculine dancers, womanlike dancers are now authorised to join in a opening during benefaction times. The song that accompanies this famous dance comes from a normal song garb that consists of a gambus, accordion, rebab, marwas, rebana and dok. Though there are countless forms of Zapin, it varies from state to state within Malaysia. This dance form is generally famous in a state of Johor.
Ghazal song is a normal artistic birthright within a Malay village in Johor. This form of low-pitched art gained foster during a late 19th century, where ghazal recitals were introduced to a stately courts of Johor Sultan. In a past, a low-pitched instruments of Ghazal consisted of a harmonium box, biola, gambus and tabla or dok (which is a form of drum). Other instruments were combined in a after years, like keroncong and ukeleli. With these additions, a song was found to be utterly loud and many people felt that it has dreaming from a strange essence of a Malay tunes, hence a new instruments were afterwards taken out from a ensemble. Currently, usually these instruments are being used as a normal Johor Malay Ghazal ensemble; a harmonium, a set of tabla, a gambus, a guitar, a tamborine, a maracas and a violin.
