Just added a 10-inch LP by siblings Kamariah Noor & Hamzah Dolmat, selves-titled "Kamariah Dan Hamzah". Not a duet album hence filed under Various Artists. The streaming is made possible with the contributions from Hadi Rahmat Wahid for the tracks and images.
Just added more images (contributed by Hadi Rahmat Wahid of Singapore) for Kamariah Noor's 1959 10-inch LP simply titled "Kamariah". Some of the songs were from the Cathay Organisation film "Bawang Puthh Bawang Merah" for the same year. These included a duet by Norma Mam & Mustapha Osman "Anggrek Desa" as well as a well-known solo by Mustapha Osman "Bunga Kasturi".
