RENTAS is a collaborative residency programme as part of GEMADAH – Traditional Malay Music Festival. Under the mentorship of NADI Singapura’s Riduan Zalani, residency artists Syafiqah Adha and Megat Firdaus will be creating new compositions that are not only inspired by the rhythms and melodies of traditional Malay music, but also its spirit, values and subtle nuances.

Discover the sounds that reflect the unwavering affinity between the musicians, their instruments and the music. With a strong desire to refine and redefine the boundaries of traditional music in our dynamic landscape, the ensemble hopes to fuel the minds of the generation with the power of creation and innovation. Witness the energy and the merger as the generations present their work in RENTAS.

Do also join us at GEMADAH – Traditional Malay Music Festival, a day-long series of activities and performances that will bring you on a journey celebrating the rich tapestry of traditional Malay music.


The participating musicians of the residency programme are handpicked based on their individual experience and interest in developing their craft within the sphere of traditional Malay music. After more than 20 hours of workshops, training and rehearsals, the residency programme culminates in a music showcase, featuring new works by the residency artists, solo performances and even a creative composition by the participating musicians.
