Ikan Kekek

SATB – a cappella    $2.35    CP 1643
“Ikan Kekek” is about a fish, and a whole lot more! As with children’s songs from other countries, Malaysian children’s songs consist of  simple, catchy, and repetitive melodies. These tunes are usually lively and festive. They often either tell a story, bear advice for young people, or are humorously written and purely meant to entertain. This popular children’s song from Malaysia covers them all and is arranged for SSAA / SATB choir and percussion.

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.
