For 11 weeks now, I've been instructing a module on traditional Malay ensemble music for conservatory students at YSTCM, As part of the assessment of the module, the students are going to put up a performance! It is ensemble comprising a good mix of Western string, woodwind and brass instruments, but with the objective of playing Malay music in its various rhythmic forms as stylistically as possible.
We are performing Selendang Mak Inang, Joget Pahang, Zapin Budi, Gurindam Jiwa and Mak Inang Pulau Kampai.
Event: "Balik Kampung" Carnival
Venue: UTown, Yale-NUS Saga College
Time: 5pm-8pm, performance at 6pm
Come join the fun! To my Malay dancer friends, come and dance with us! #balikkampung #carnival #yalenus #traditionalmalaymusic #ystcm
