Description
The highly rhythmic music of Malaysia is a bit of a melting pot, befitting its location on various trade routes. East African, Arab, and Indian tonalities flow through these 15 tracks, with instruments including tablas, ouds, harmoniums, accordions, and flutes.

"Sandii, one of the country's biggest stars (who's actually Japanese) turns in a glowing performance on 'Cinta Hampa.' But she's just one of several outstanding female singers on this disc…. There's vintage Malay pop from Fredo & the Flybaits, which is deliciously cheesy. There's also creativity and originality (still rooted in the tradition) from Salih Yaacob, and a mix of Indian ghazal and Middle Eastern rhythms on 'Ghazal Masri' from Mari Menari. The diversity is quite spectacular, and it's easy to trace influences in the music: the Zapin rhythm, for example, featured on 'Burung Burung Ayam' is simply a softer version of Arabic Zapin. What remains apparent is that Malaysia has a strong identity that's more than the sum of its parts, while still retaining its various ethnic characteristics."—All Music Guide
