Just added an LP by Sheqal or real name Shahrin Salehuddin from 1990. His music career was launched by producer Manan Ngah who wanted a change from his previous pop outputs (Fran, Sudirman, Dato’ Shake, etc). Although by all means not the first to introduce the Nusantara/Pop Traditional genre, this album proven to be a go-to for current research on the subject prompted by the album title "Balada Nusantara Menampilkan Sheqal". This LP version ignored two tracks made available on the cassette tape and CD releases namely the minus one and instrumental version of "Cinta Nusantara". However, they are included here as "bonus tracks" for your listening pleasure ヅ.
All tracks were contributed by Pak Mat Tempe IsTaiping, Penang, Malaysia. You can do the same for other albums/songs. Click the button below and the throughout the MN website to donate to the MN Fund:
