About

In 2022, the Malaysian Government’s Look East Policy, which has greatly contributed toward strengthening bilateral ties between Malaysia and Japan, will mark its 40th year. To celebrate this occasion, JFKL presents “Min’yo, Japanese folk music,” a concert featuring Alena Murang (Sape) as the guest musician.

Min’yo can be considered as Japanese “soul music.” It has long been sung amongst the townspeople such as farmers, fishermen, nannies, lovers, etc. Min’yo’s lyrics not only help you understand the daily lives of the Japanese people, but also their perception of seasons, and regional culture as well.

This time, wadaiko and percussion will be added to the usual setup of a Min’yo performance for a programme ranging from traditional renditions to contemporary arrangements. With a lively rhythm and intertwining serene melodies, the audience can be sure to join in and enjoy.
