72 pages / 600gr colored lyrics/quotes/photos with hardcover book included chords notebook and CD version
It's rare to see a Malaysian band fuse classical Malay musical elements with contemporary sounds, resulting in music that can be enjoyed by people all over the world. Meet Salammusik, a nine-member band comprising Ashraaf Salam A. Azlan (lead vocals), Dyana Shamsuddin (vocals), AhmadBulya Abdillah J. a.k.a Bulya (vocals & maschine), Mohd Irhas a.k.a Payung (trumpets), Jazmi Jamaluddin and Aabid Aafiat (saxophone), Kevin Theng (drums), Yuswa Ansari (keyboards), and Kristopher Chong (bass). This award-winning band has not only played across the country, but also performed at international music festivals in Europe, mostly in the Netherlands. Now, most people might assume Salammusik to be a reggae band – no thanks to Salam (fondly known as Acap) and Bulya, who both sport dreadlocks, in addition to the occasional tinge of Jamaican influence in the band’s music.
