Sing Along with Martin
“The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers.” Roy Ayers
An enjoyable sing along session, with me and my guitar. This might be your first encounter with the Kristang’s music and you will get to know more about the lifestyle of Portuguese in Melaka through the lyrics of songs composed by the community members of Portuguese Cultural Society, which was established in 1967 by the late Bernard Santa Maria.
Each song was inspired by true stories and the lifestyle of Portuguese community in Melaka in the 60’s and 70’s. I feel that these songs are very meaningful as it carries the heritage of Malacca Portuguese and it is my honour to be able to pass on to the next generation. My uncle, Don Biens and myself love music and we compiled some of the best Kristang songs in an album called Festa De San Pedru in 2006.
On this virtual experience, I’ll be sharing the lyrics and its messages that each song carries coupled with some of my personal stories as a Kristang in Malaysia.
Let’s have some good time together and rest assured we will have lots of fun! I can’t wait any longer to meet you and sing along with me virtually.
