This classic and upbeat Malaysian folk song is about flying kites! It is usually sung while seated on the floor and while performing synchronized-choreographed movements and hand claps. This pentatonic melody can be adapted to suit choirs at all levels and makes for a colourful opening or closing of any concert.
