A projectile called Projectunes

Came across a very well written article on Projectunes in today's paper. Out of curiosity, I visited the site. Phooaaarr! I must admit I've been really out of touch with the local music scene, so these kids just blew me away! From a humble home studio in the bedroom of one Adi Rani, they have produced some fabulous stuff! Our local talents just continue to amaze me!

I especially liked Azeem's track, Home. Kinda gives that G-Funk vibe with a real Bruneian flavour in the lyrics. Addictive stuff. I remember wondering to myself while listening to the G-Funk sounds of WarrenG driving around in Perth (where I met this member of projectunes) many years ago, "When are we gonna have a Bruneian version of this?". I shall wonder no more...

Hats off to the team at Projectunes and keep up the good fight! I wanna see you guys get to the top!

Migration Complete...

If you recall, sometime ago, I was toying with the idea of migrating to the wordpress platform. Today, that idea becomes a reality. The migration to wordpress is complete and all posts from today onwards will be at http://anakbrunei.org Do bear with me for the next couple of weeks while I figure out the ins and outs of wordpress hehe.

This site will remain visible for archive purposes. Thank you and see you over at the new pad!

Hadrah

... In the past, hadrah was only performed during weddings, but now it is performed in open events, to greet honoured guests and more significantly to signal the arrival of His Majesty in various events...

... Brunei youths nowadays have done well in preserving the heritage and have even enhanced it. Back then, competition involved only beating of drums and chanting. But now performances are choreographed to make it more attractive and interesting...

... hadrah could be further promoted in Brunei if there is a national association of hadrah set up. "We have a national team for silat and gasing (top spinning), but not for hadrah. We cannot just rely on mukim and schools to promote the activity, it has to be done at a national level...
