Fuse with SAX
With flavours from our Motherland, Malaysia, Birdian Saxophone Ensemble fuses a few patriotic classics from the 80s along with an extraordinary medley of folk songs from the East Java of Indonesia, Penang’s Baba Nyonya heritage and the Malaccan Portuguese community. It is an invitation to travel through our own unique cultural identity through music. Amazed by our imaginative and talented local music arrangers and composers, come celebrate with us!
