A Samad Said to appear at ‘River meets Light’


Poet A Samad Said and his son Az Samad are due to make an appearance at Ombak-Ombak’s ‘River meets Light’ production along Prangin Canal next weekend.

Hopefully, this will be a first step in the revitalisation of the Canal. The event is being held in conjunction with the George Town Festical 2011.
