I've heard that the Indonesian song titled "Rasa Sayange" which originally comes from Maluku has been claimed by the Malaysian government that the song is theirs. And they even has the Malay version! So which one is correct? I have heard both songs, and though many people that Bahasa Malaysia is similar to Bahasa Indonesia, I can hardly understand the Malay version of the song.
The song is not only popular in Maluku province, but some tour
guides I happened to meet during my visit to Bandung also informed me that it is not only the song which was claimed by Malaysia, but many more, including one of the Balinese dances. So, is it true?
