Sabahan local artist association or “Persatuan Artis Tempatan Sabah” (PERTISA) is a group who responsible to stand and protect loacal sabahan artist. Now days sabahan artist had proven that the quality and standard of their product is meet the standard requirement. If you look closely to our local music or entertainment, you will found there are more and more young generation get involve in the music and entertainment. After this sabahan local artist community grows, and then they need an association or club to support them. It’s not easy to stand by your own foot in this competitive industry if you not strong enough.
I didn’t really sure when PERTISA had formed, but PERTISA already have their own theme song and office( visit PERTISA to listen, lyric also provided). PERTISA office is located in Jabatan Muzium Sabah, this office is their base for discussion and administration. Any inquires can refer to PERTISA office. I can make a conclusion here, PERTISA had formed a few years but they didn’t recognize by public.
National composer Asmin Mudin had join PERTISA on August 22, 2008.Abu Bakar Ellah and Clarice J.Matha also officially become as PERTISA on that day. September 5, 2008 PERTISA had create their own history after successfully make a decision to counsel “Anugerah Artis Tempatan Sabah”.
