HIGHLIGHTS:Serba Salah Kalau Tak Menyukai Raisa




Dalam kehadiran bermacam bakat baru pelbagai saiz, rupa dan warna menyesakkan pentas musik kebelakangan ini, kehadiran Raisa Andriana dengan single pertama berjudul "serba salah" ternyata menonjol bukan sahaja di radio malahan di ruang legar internet.

Pentas musik Seberang seolah bernafas baru dengan kehadiran ramai produser dan pengkarya baru yang tidak tercalit noda komersil melampau yang kedengaran canggung,memaksa dan memenatkan dengan gimik visual yang seolah-olah menjerit inginkan perhatian.

Syukur Raisa tidak begitu, dengan nukilan hasil kolaborasi bersama produser muda dari soul vibe(ramadhan handyanto & andrianto ario) maka album Raisa dilancarkan pada 25 May, di Barcode, Kemang. Album dihasilkan oleh Soul Child Record indonesia ini dipasarkan serata Indonesia oleh Universal Music.

Single pertama "serba salah" diolah ringkas dengan elemen pop jazz dengan warna suara Raisa yang manis mengalun setiap bait bersahaja namun segar bukan sahaja ditelinga malahan dimata, video klip "serba salah" simple, tetapi cukup mainan emosi dengan tona warna sephia membawa jiwa pendengar menusuk ke alam emosi lagu "serba salah". Manis tidak terlampau memaksa dan tak terlampau dahagakan perhatian. Cantik, semanis wajah Raisa, tuan empunya lagu :)

Sekali dengar, terimbas warna suara Joss Stone dialbum pertama, sedikit India Arie single "serba salah" menceritakan episod sesudah putusnya perhubungan, putus habis tiada lagi sambungan buat kali kedua kerna "rasa itu telah hilang, maafkanlah, ku tak ingin, ku terluka kerna cinta". Rasa tak? kalau tak pernah putus cinta memang tak akan merasa maksud disebalik lagu ini, tapi rasanya ramai yang pernah dan sedang merasainya kan?


Raisa - Serba Salah

Harus ku akui, semuanya telah berbeda,
lelah menjalani, semua serba salah...
apa lagi salahku,apalagi salahmu,
ku tak mengerti, apalagi salahku,
apalagi salahmu, apalagi?

sudah, lupakan segala cerita,
antara kita,ku tak ingin,ku tak ingin
ku terluka, kerna cinta...

lelah menjalani, semua serba salah...
apalagi salahku,apalagi salahmu,
ku tak mengerti,yeah...
apalagi salahku,dan apalagi salahmu,
apalagi....

sudah, lupakan segala cerita,
antara kita,ku tak ingin,ku tak ingin
ku terluka, kerna cinta...

bukan kerana rasa itu telah hilang,
maafkanlah ku tak ingin,ku takingin
ku terluka...kerana cinta.....

bukan ku tak berharap padamu.
tapi fahami,ku tak ingin, terluka....yeah...

sudah, lupakan segala cerita,
antara kita,ku tak ingin,ku tak ingin
ku terluka, kerna cinta...

bukan kerana rasa itu telah hilang,
maafkanlah ku tak ingin,ku takingin
ku terluka...kerana cinta.....

CONCERT:David Archuleta elevates Stadium Negara

It has been a while since i went to concert for such a mainstream scale, but i guess i remembered that i once secretly pray to meet him face to face when i saw him in American Idol. His sincerity and down to earth charisma will surely make you not to hate this fella.

So when a friend of mine asked me if i would be interested to watch him live in action(on stage), i reschedule my appointments and make time for my friend and also for him(ehhehe). We arrived missing the first couple of songs, the indoor stadium was almost full with screaming kids, teens and their supportive guardians, singing along to his song.

His team must've known that cause most of his song covers, are ones old hits that people from the matured set of age would enjoy his performance and his rendition of hits like 'crazy' from gnars barkley, 'heavy' from dj sammy, 'a thousand miles' by vanessa carlton and few others hits received roaring applaused from the fans of his smooth vocals.

Wearing with just black skinny, grey shirt and pop the colour purple jacket he dance to his upbeat songs and at times use a keyboard to perform the slow songs. The

As the the concert move towards the end, his energy doesnt drained out even his shirt startes to get sweaty, smiling from ear to ear he serenades his fans to his hits like'touch my hand', 'something about love', 'elevator' and other songs from his latest album 'the other side of down'. Knowing that he havent sing his debut hit 'crush' the crowd screamed for encore and yes, he went out closing his concert last night satisfying his legions of fans singing along to the song before the curtains really went down.

I didnt bring in my camera, so sorry for the poor blackberry quality type of pictures, but i went home with memory of Archuleta to remember by :)

SPOTTED:Anak Kayan




Who would've thought a regular family 'gendang' silat practice suddenly turns the whole family into an ethnic band performing series of pahang ethnic folklore songs? Meet "Anak Kayan", Pahang talented band consisting of Man Kayan and his family tree from wife, sons, daughter, nephews and nieces.

Established in 2010 in Kampung Permatang Badak,Kuantan.Man Kayan past time activity (other than handling their food stall) are jamming music with his wife and kids practising gendang silat alongside other equipments such as gendang, keketuks, rebana, tamborine and bebuluh singing along to ethnic songs of pahang, jamming to the songs of Datuk Ariffin Said a reknown local ethnic singer in Pahang.

From a close personal jamming sessions in front of friends and family,man kayan relatives later invite them to perform at family weddings, then more invitations pour in which later named themselves as "anak kayan" started to perform on bigger stage,from getting invitations to perform representing the state of pahang in cultural fest,dinners and events to an invitation to representing Malaysia for culture fest in Riau in January 2011! They also once invited to perform 'live' on TV during TV9's Nasi Lemak Kopio programme.

Of course the art blood runs naturally among man kayan family when he later started to wrote and compose their songs, which circles around the story of nature, love and malay culture. from the story of kancil, to words of advice from elders to the young kids to take care of the land, the trees,river and be good to people and respectful to nature. His talent were formidably full of potential since one of his song titled"semalam di kuala pahang" won Pahang ethnic song contest in 2010.

The name "Anak Kayan" comes from the musical instrument used by them were mainly made from "kayu kayan" aka wood, the kayans family as what i like to called them consist of man kayan(lead vocal/guitar), mak kayan(gong), akilah(2nd vocal),farah(keketuk),Alif(rebana/gendang),nado(gendang/rebana),kanda(gendang),apit(buluh kuntum/tamborine),idan(guitaris)along(guitaris) and afina(gamelan). Most of the kids are still in lower and secondary school except for along who just started working. Music currently is their part time get together activity and money from shows were used for school and also to provides what they need for the bands esp on clothes(which some of them were made by themselves) and instruments.

Its an honored to have "anak kayan" on TM presents Everyone Connects @ Berjaya Megamall Kuantan stage,since its not often to see such a inspiring local talents from Pahang to perform in such nature of event,whereby during the two days event, they performed and entertained the crowd with Pahang folksongs bridging both traditional and digital culture together.

The future is shining bright for man kayan and his family as his genuine effort to promote local pahang culture via music certainly gaining attention from local people, government and corporate company such as TM. Their music will soon be heard in some school in Pahang as part of the school curricular activity which "anak kayan" will be performing in front of the school kids as part of the effort to expose the kids with positive local malay culture and of course invitations to perform for shows will continously keep pouring in for the band especially when their good rapport seems to spread from mouth to mouth, the down to earth persona seems to become another charming amulet to the band since man kayan is not only a person with a calm,loving personality but a down to earth person aswell.

At the the time this posting were published, 20 "anak kayan" songs has finished the process of recording just awaiting funds to print them into CDs, hence any donors or sponsors is certainly welcome by the band to help their music distributed in a proper manner.

Eventough the time has move forward and tradition and culture is something that has becoming something that is not really important to be taken care off in era of starbucks and high speed internet?maybe we shouldnt forget where are roots from and bring them along in our modern lifestyle to keep us grounded and to make us remember that maybe, tradition is something that we all need to makes us a sane human.
