Recitals of Yesteryear– Kata-kata Kita
A talk by Rilla Melati & Cikgu Bahri Rajib with song performances led by Aqmal.
This performance-based forum showcases Malay children songs of yesteryears. Easy to remember and recite, children songs are often imbued with an educational and entertaining nature. However, they are actually filled with rich vocabulary, melodies and rhythms, which make them interesting mediums for analysis. This re-imagining of works written from the 1950s to 1980s from the book Lagu-Lagu Kita also encourages the continuous production of children songs in nurturing creative imagination and timeless values for generations to come.
This session will be held in Malay and English.
