Kuala Lumpur Music Festival 2012
DIKIR BARAT REGGAE
Dikir barat (Jawi: دكير بارت ) is a musical form, native to the Malay Peninsula, that involves singing in groups—often in a competitive setting. Dikir barat may be performed either with percussion instrumental accompaniment, or with no instruments at all. The origins of dikir barat are not clear; it is found in both Thailand and Malaysia, and today the Malaysian government actively promotes it as an important part of Malaysian national culture.
For the first time a Reggae Dikir Barat Fusion will be performed at the Kuala Lumpur Music Festival 2012 @ Istana Budaya on the 1st & 2nd of July. Don’t miss this! Malaysian Reggae figure Poe will be backed by 500 Dikir Barat members (the largest ever).
Be there for Reggae!!!
Tickets are priced @ RM20, RM35, RM45 & RM60
