Dikir Temasek – Di Pinggiran Aidilfitri
From one of the pioneers of Dikir Barat, a traditional Malay form of singing which originated from Malaysia and Thailand, this song from Dikir Temasek will leave you close to tears with the combination of soothing vocals and harmonious choral singing.
Sweet Charity - Seri Hari Raya
A Hari Raya song coming from a band that has been dubbed as Singapore’s Deep Purple and Santana, Sweet Charity was part of Singapore and Malaysia’s new wave rock era from the ’70s and ’80s. The song Seri Hari Raya has a lot of catchy riffs that will definitely make you jam to it.
The Pinholes – Besok Oh Yeah
Time to get your groove on with this gem from a band known for its grooviness. With the band’s signature retro look and sound, it wouldn’t be a problem bobbing your head to The Pinholes’ Hari Raya song, Besok Oh Yeah.
Force Vomit – Selera Raya
So yeah, a surf-punk band with a Hari Raya song. Singapore’s very own Force Vomit released this Hari Raya single in 2002. The lyrics are very simple and straight to the point. A lot of headbanging will happen while singing this song so better keep painkillers ready for the next day.
And we’ll round out the list with a definite contrast to the last artist,
Imran Ajmain – Aidilfitri
Imran Ajmain, an R&B and Soul Artist released a Hari Raya cover album. Not straying too far from the original versions, Imran’s take on Hari Raya classics is both refreshing and nostalgic. His renditions of these timeless classics give him a lot of room for his signature sound but still keeps the song true to its roots.
