One of the prevailing cultural legacies the Malays have inherited from their ancestors is the monarchical system of nine sultans who act as constitutional monarchies in their respective states. Each of the state sultans will in turn be appointed as the national monarch for a 5 year term under a unique system of rotational monarchy, […]

Lenggang Lenggok (Swinging and Swaying) lyrics

January 14, 2010

And now for something more upbeat. Like the previous ghazal tunes Memikat Janda (Charming a Divorcee) and Dia Datang (Here She Comes), Lenggang Lenggok (Swing and Sway) is a song dedicated to women – her captivating sways, her charming smiles, her glistening black Pantene locks…you get the idea. I guess women are just more interesting […]

Seri Langkat Kuala Tungkal, amboi                     Seri Langkat Kuala Tungkal, oh my Padi pulut enak rasanya, sayang                        Glutinous rice it’s so delicious, my love Kalaulah kail, kalaulah kail panjang sejengkal        If one’s fishing line, if one’s fishing line can only go so long Janganlah laut hendak diduga                             Don’t even think of challenging […]

This video features the song Joget Tari Lenggang (Swaying Dance Joget), also known as Joget Pahang, named after the state in Peninsula Malaysia famous for huge swathes of the oldest rainforest in the world (yes, we Malaysians and our never-ending quest for Guinness book glory).

In the second part of what I hope will be a continuing series featuring traditional Malay tunes, I’ve picked another ghazal song by the King of Gambus the late Fadzil Ahmad. Dia Datang, which literally translates into She Comes or She Arrives, is commonly played at Malay wedding receptions just as the bride and groom […]

I’ve always been fascinated by Malay folksongs, and the ghazal, a love-poem, is arguably one of the most spirited and uplifting of the various genres of Malay musical traditions. Borrowing from Middle Eastern and Persian influences, the ghazal is an auditory reminder of the strong cultural links between the Malay world and the Middle East […]

Sekali rujuk Kamus Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka dan kita dapati bahasa Malaysia yang kita kenali adalah seperti bahasa asing yang perlu diterjemah untuk difahami. Terlalu banyak perkataan baru yang kita tak pernah terlintas. Salah satu sebab ialah penggunaan bahasa pasar dalam pertuturan seharian kita yang tidak akan dapat diubah. Eksperimen bahasa baku yang dipelopori Anwar […]
