Singapore Writers Festival
Performed in Malay.
What could the traditional Dikir Barat form and contemporary Hip Hop have in common? In this performance, Tukang Karut performers from various Dikir Barat groups will be pitted against some of the best Malay rappers in a gelanggang or a free-style arena format to test their wit in traditional Malay quatrains. Come experience a spontaneous showdown of rhythmic poetry like never before.
This programme is part of Singapore Writers Festival 2019.
SWF 2019: A LANGUAGE OF OUR OWN
This year they invite you to join us in considering all the ways in which the verbal, physical and visual languages we use every day affect how we see the world. Language heals and language hurts. Language can tie down and language can transform. In a world that is so simultaneously connected and fractured, who has language left behind? What has language taught us about the past and how must language evolve to accommodate a changing humanity.
