MM-015: Blues Gang feat Hamzah Dolmat ~ Tudung Periuk

I’d like to feature a legendary Malaysian Blues Band simply known as Blues Gang. They released their first album in 1979.  Back than Blues wasn’t really a popular music genre in Malaysia. But thanks to them and a bunch of other musicians, the blues is now a recognized music genre. And to any musician who put some time listening and noodling to traditional malay music, they will recognize the blues in it too.

Blues Gang

“Asli” is a  form of a traditional malay music that presents the blues element but arranged slightly different from a standard blues structure.  So here is Blues Gang with a legendary traditonal singer and violonist, the late Hamzah Dolmat. This one showcase a very famous traditional malay song with a twist. If I’m not mistaken this tv show was in 1983. Please excuse the audio quality as it’s an old VHS recording. Give it a listen and see whether you can spot the blues line in the song ;p

    Wah best lah this song.. i love it.. esp the blues line.. kalau depa nyanyi pun best gak.. heheheh….

    • Namz says:

      Ya laa…but I guess it was an honour due to Hamzah Dolmat. The man did pay his due to music. In a way it was apt. How many other video can you get the man to play violin like that? Salutes to him.

      Hmm…gotta start workin on the tribute thingy..
