This song tells the well-worn story of a young lad consumed with love and chasing after a lady who in turn, has her hearts set on another man. Through the main character of the young lad we can relate to the pain of being rejected by the one we love, made worse by the humiliation […]

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 […]

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 […]

Memikat Janda (Charming a Divorcee) lyrics

December 19, 2009

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 […]
