Are you depressed about the socio-political situation? This could be just the antidote for you: the Aliran Singers.

The Aliran Singers are gearing up to perform at a celebratory dinner in Penang on Saturday, 24 October 2009. The singers are coming together again after a two-year break to sing about the current political situation, which should be a whole lot of fun. The special guest artiste for the evening is singer Pete Teo, the producer of the popular 15Malaysia video-clips released recently.
For more information, phone Aliran at 04-658 5251 during office hours from Tuesdays to Saturdays.

I misquoted Victor Jara.
He actually said that the guitar is a gun
and the song is the bullet. I have two guns at home
and many of Brother Bob Marley’s bullets. 🙂
Yes, the world would be a much kinder place
with more musicians, artists and poets!
Even if you can’t sing, you can write the songs!
P.S. Should add more names to my initial list of musicians who changed the world … Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Zimbabwean Thomas Mapfumo, the South African “white zulu”, anti-apartheid activist Johnny Clegg. Not forgetting the Chilean Victor Jara (tragic victim of Pinochet’s regime) who said that the guitar is a machine gun ……
One thing about the Aliran Singers is that they don’t let any deficiency in singing talent get in the way of giving everyone a show to remember!
Indeed, the world would be a much kinder place if we had more musicians, artists and poets, don’t you think?
Whoa Anil, are you among the Aliran Singers?
Ha ha, I will be hiding somewhere – unless they drag me up the stage with them!
Music can inspire people and change the world.
Remember John Lennon and Bob Marley?
