Since the '60s, one Malay music songwriter has stood out in Southeast Asia for his prolific talent and heartfelt lyricism, having lent his magic touch to hundreds of songs by artists such as P. Ramlee, Saloma, Ahmad Jais and Anita Sarawak. Till this day, the songs of Singapore Malay music pioneer and Cultural Medallion recipient, Yusnor Ef, continue to be performed and enjoyed by many.

Enjoy an evening of songs specially selected by Yusnor Ef, including Gelisah (Restless), Taj Mahal and Joget Malam Berinai (Wedding Night Dance) to be sung by 60s & 70s songbird Sanisah Huri, in a rare appearance, joined by other well-loved veteran artists Mariah Bachok, J Mizan and Rahimah Rahim.
Popular young artists Imran Ajmain and Sezaire Sazali will also grace the concert together with a special guest appearance by Malaysian singer, A Rozaini, who will be singing beloved songs by A Ramlee such as Kasih Sayang Suami Isteri (Love Between Husband & Wife) and Hancurnya Istana Cinta (Broken Love Palace).

Accompanied by Orkestra Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru, with music arranged and conducted by renowned Malaysian composer, Datuk Suhaimi Mohd Zain, affectionately known as Pak Ngah, join a variety of Malay music artists across generations and re-live a nostalgic night of beautiful songs that owe much of their appeal to Yusnor Ef's evocative lyrics.
