about

Guano Breath Malaysia

My output mostly dates back to the 1980s and has been heard by a mere handful. This isn't what I'm into now but at least I'm not too embarrassed about it.

Collaborations with others & freestyle choreographic works form an integral part of my archive.

I enjoy being the world's least ambitious musician.

Track Name: Bukit Secocol / Hutan Manao / Sungai Makao
Bukit Secocol is where the elves (Orang Halus) congregate. They serve as muses by inspiring melodies through dreams. This song pays tribute to the elven source of all Orang Asli music. The a capella invocation segues into a live recording of Hutan Manao (performed at the Shah Alam Stadium on 16 September 1994 to 42,000 and telecast live nationwide)... followed by the tranquil Sungai Makao, one of the most sacred rivers in the Temuan homeland.
Track Name: Kuda Lari
Lari, lari, kuda lari (Run, run, horsey run)
Belang, belang, kuda belang (Stripey, stripey horse)
Pahang, Pahang, pergi Pahang (Pahang, Pahang,
Horsey's run to Pahang)
Lari, lari, mana cari (Run, run, where has horsey gone?)
Hilang, hilang, sudah hilang (Gone, gone, horsey has done a run)
