Intimacies of P. Ramlee's Film Music

BY ADIL JOHAN
@ VOL 8 ON MAR 14, 2019

Why do the films of P. Ramlee leave such a lasting impression on Malaysians' sense of national identity? The obvious answer is, his films and music were made during an intense period of nation-making known as the Independence Era. 

Dr Adil Johan, a research fellow at the Institute of Ethnic Studies (KITA), The National University of Malaysia (UKM), argues that the lasting impact of P. Ramlee's music lies in the intimate themes and narratives that his songs express; intricately tying Malaysians (and Singaporeans) to an emotional and complex history of continuous self-actualization. 

People know him as the 'researching saxophonist'; by day, he researches anything to do with music, culture and society and by night, he makes music with Azmyl Yunor and Nadir.
