An Adil Johan Quartet semi-original, “Listen'” featuring Dasha Logan. Live at No Black Tie, December 2008. Adil is the son of Johan Saravanamuttu (‘the singing professor’) and academic Maznah Mohamad. Darsha, on the other hand, is the daughter of the late Logan Arumugam of Alleycats fame. Looks like a couple of stars in the making…
This is a song about re-arranging your life. Talks of shady deals and contracts (“It’s not the way we want it to be, but those in power don’t want to see”), the struggle for change and the quest for justice and transparency. Quite appropriate for a guy named Adil Johan (“Champion of Justice”). Steve Naris Nanda: Drums; Hiro Maekawa: Bass; Terrence Liew: Keys; Adil Johan: Sax + Vocals.
