Some of the best music comes from our own backyards. Sadly, people don’t usually give local songwriters the credit they deserve.
My mum, a songwriter too, always says Malaysia needs songs written by Malaysians for Malaysians.
While countless songs have been written all over the world, nothing captures a Malaysian heart more than a song by a fellow Malaysian.
“Nothing captures a Malaysian heart more than a song by a fellow Malaysian.”
Listening to these songs, there is a sense of national pride. Sometimes, we even laugh at the subtle jokes only Malaysians can get.
More than all of that, though, something about these songs just draws us in.
It’s something deeper.
It’s not just sound. It’s not just noise. It’s not just music.
