M Nasir Sang Pecinta

Sang Pecinta, Sun 31 July 2013, Istana Budaya

Another M Nasir concert - always a joy to attend.

Overall, 25 songs were played (according to NST) And it stretched to more than 2 hours, how generous of him. He seemed not to realize this at all, enjoying himself throughout the concert.

The set started with a backdrop of CGI to the instrumental tune of Cermin Mimpi, followed by a recital of poem.

The first song kicked off with M Nasir and his musicians performing behind a translucent screen where you could see the performers' silhouette a la wayang kulit.

He's backed by the Orkestra Seni Kebangsaan for the strings section and Orkestra Tradisional Malaysia for the gamelan ensemble; apart from his very able band of course.

He played a mix of his own songs and his compositions for other artistes. According to here, he played a whopping 25 songs which stretched more than 2 hours! Thank you for being so generous :)
