Playspace Presents Sound Bites Vol.4 Featuring Azmyl Yunor & Orkes Padu
AZMYL YUNOR & ORKES PADU
Azmyl Yunor & Orkes Padu is acclaimed Malaysian folk rock singer-songwriter Azmyl Yunor’s project with producer and long-time bandmate Raje. Their new album Was Was was released in 2015 on Malaysia Day eve and features Azmyl’s trademark bi-lingual lyrical observations about Malaysian social and cultural life coupled with his hook-y melodies. Was Was completes his ‘W’ album trilogy following 2010’s Warga and 2012’s Wilayah.

Azmyl Yunor & Orkes Padu features a rotating cast of band members from the Malaysian independent live music scene including bassists Sadat, Mustaq (Keladak, Space Gampus Experiment, The Sofa Sessions), Adrian Yap (Furniture, AY & the Sigarettes, Ferns); guitarists Syaril Zizi (False Opus, Lab the Rat), N.R. Lohan (Cats in Love, Square Circles), Jason Ong (Ben’s Bitches), Keng (Seven Collar T-shirt, AY & the Sigarettes); saxophonist Adil Johan (Adil Johan Quartet, Nadir); and percussionist Ammar Khairi (The Maharajah Commission, Vega).
The eight songs on the album were recorded, engineered and produced by Orkes Padu band leader Raje at his own Zig Zag studio between November 2012 and August 2015.
This showcase will be special as the band will be playing the Was Was album in its entirety (just under one month short of its 1st anniversary) along with crowd favorites from the Warga and Wilayah albums.
This showcase also features special guests Nadir - a new genre-crossing band to look out for in the future.
