Getting into the spirit of Merdeka, let us remind ourselves on what makes us Malaysians. One of the many things we and even foreigners love about our country is how multicultural it is. You won’t be surprised to see people of different races and backgrounds coming together to have a good time during the holidays and cultural celebrations.
Malaysia is also known to be filled with multilingual people with most citizens being able to speak 2 -3 languages. However, you don’t see Malays speaking or singing in another language other than Malay and English as often but this couple managed to wow the crowd at shopping malls by singing some popular Chinese songs.
Fantastic Malay sings a famous Chinese song #keluargamalaysia
Posted on multiple social media platforms, this Malay couple is going viral for performing songs in the Chinese language in shopping malls around the Klang Valley such as Pavilion Bukit Jalil and Eko Cheras. The woman is the one who sings while her husband plays the guitar.
The busking couple is apparently known to perform contemporary and classic Chinese songs including the popular ballad “The Moon Represents My Heart” by the late Taiwanese singer, Teresa Teng. Netizens were very much impressed by the duo’s performances and left supporting comments on the viral videos. According to some of the comments, the woman can also sing songs in the Hokkien & Cantonese dialects as well.
It is currently unknown on who exactly they are as no one has shared any info on them such as their names, where they’re from or if they are on any social media platforms. The only thing people do know is that you can expect to be entertained by their performances in Malay, English and Chinese.
Wonder if they will perform songs in Tamil next? We’d love to see that!
