A renaissance of traditional Malay music took place in the 1990s. Popularised by artists such as Ramli Sarip, M. Nasir and many others, this style of music is a fusion of Western pop and traditional Malay music. It eventually came to be known as Nusantara.
In conjunction with the Singapore Heritage Festival exhibition “Ole Ole Temasek – 50 Years of Singapore Malay Pop Music”, A Lighter Side of History offers a talk by Art Fazil, which will also feature a performance of Nusantara hit songs by his band.
