During the Raya Haji weekend, I planned to do some updating on my blog. And as you all have noticed, for quite some time, the postings under the header ‘Art appreciation’ has been very minimal. This is due to the fact that the free WordPress does not allow uploading of Audio and Video files.
Well, it is a shame that I only realised today that I can embed YouTube links into my WordPress heheheh. To celebrate my newly-acquired blogging knowledge, allow me to share one of my favourite compositions – “Naga dan Rasaksa”.
This song was composed by me in 2001 and the lyrics were written by my friends – Zaid Zainal and Kucikuci. This song was performed for the first time in public at the Battle of the Band 2001 in Leeds, United Kingdom by our band – The Lost Plot. We managed to secure the 2nd Runner-Up for the event. Unfortunately, I was unable to perform on that night as I had exams at my university.
This video was recorded in my room at the University of Kent in 2002.
Almost ten years later, I recorded the following video – performing the same song, using the same guitar and with same person singing (trust me, both are the same person – ME!)
