Jiwang by P7:1SMA


You may be feeling emotional today. But guess what? You’re allowed to be.

P7:1SMA shares JIWANG, a karaoke dance film about enjoying excessive emotions and a desire to escape.

Be vocal and vulnerable through evergreen Malay jiwang songs from the 80s-90s. Let your guard down in a personalised experience.

“Biar tenang jiwaku…”
“Let my soul rest…”

What is Jiwang?
Jiwang is a Malay slang referring to excessive romantic, anguish and heartbreaking love. The popularity of Jiwang songs (slow rock music) in the1980s-1990s accompanied the growth of the term Jiwang. It describes an individual’s emotional relationship and release with music and can be a social marker (e.g. a Jiwang person).
