Feeling the love for Malaysian folk songs

Beloved songs such as Gelang Sipaku Gelang are featured in the book, with illustrations to spark the imagination.

Three-year-old Hugo Huang has never lived in Malaysia but he can sing Malay folk songs like Burung Kakak Tua and Rasa Sayang. His mother, Lok Lee Jiun, sang these songs growing up in Penang and she wanted to share that heritage with Hugo who lives in Taipei.

Unlike most mothers who would have just sung those songs to their children and hoped they’d be hooked to the catchy tunes, Lok curated a song book of her favourite Malay children’s tunes for him because she wants to pass on the tradition to him. With Lok’s Rasa Sayang: Sing-and-Record Fun Book, other children will also get to know and learn these beloved songs.
