RENTAS is a collaborative residency programme as part of GEMADAH – Traditional Malay Music Festival. Under the mentorship of 2018 Young Artist Award Recipient Zulkifli Mohamed Amin, resident artists Danial Ariffin Azman and Muhammad Hardi Aris will be presenting new compositions inspired by the rhythms and melodies of traditional Malay music which embody the spirit and values of Malay culture. With a strong desire to refine and redefine the boundaries of traditional music, join us in discovering new musical creations at RENTAS!
The participating musicians of the residency programme are handpicked based on their individual experience and interest in developing their craft within the sphere of traditional Malay music. After more than 20 hours of workshops, training and rehearsals, the residency programme culminates in a music showcase, featuring new works by the resident artists, solo performances as well as a creative composition by the participating musicians.
