OzAsia – Siti Nurhaliza – 5K

by Riccardo Barone

Has been a night of human warmth and success for the multi awarded Malaysian singer Siti Nurhaliza. Number 1 Artist not just in her homeland, Australia remembers her for two awards from ‘South Pacific International Song and Singing Competition 1999’ held in Gold Coast.

Her band consists of three background singers, drums, bass guitar, guitar, musical director/keyboardist/background singer, programmer plus six dancers.
Her music genre is wide: from classic rock to pop, from disco to folk traditional, from fusion to R&B and really noticeable is her ability to sing in so many languages: Malaysian, Javanese, English, Mandarin, Arabic, Urdu, and Japanese.

The audience was literally coming from everywhere: Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia. Their effort and fidelity has been awarded and noticed by the extraordinary singer, which made everyone feel like home due to her speech mostly in Malaysian; and there is nothing better than seeing rivers of people enjoying and smiling all the time. Therefore that night many people from the audience had the privilege to have their birthday celebrated by an exceptional “Happy Bday” sung by their favorite Star. Indeed her generosity and big heart culminated when she invited a lucky one from the audience to hold her hand and dance with her on the stage; and of course she couldn’t hold her joyful tears.

The show went for two hours and a half with 2 short breaks due to costume changes.
Unforgettable the last song, remembered for the peculiarity that has been written in fourteen Malaysian dialects!
