Product Description

Following the second world war Malaysian popular music developed alongside films. The most popular singer of all was P.Ramlee, who appeared in over 60 films and sung more than 200 songs. His films and songs appealed to everyone in Malaysia from rural and urban areas, Malay and non-Malay. The music derived from various Malay traditions and dances such as asli, joget, and keroncong. Western instrumentation replaced most of the traditional instruments and singers tended to adopt the crooning style of their Hollywood peers. This best of album also features the female version of P. Ramlee (and also his wife) Saloma. It's this music that went on to influence the modern pop and roots crossover artists such as Siti Nurhaliza or Sheila Majid. Still very popular today and a legend of Malay music.
