Founded in 2011, Nobat Kota Singa (NKS) is a traditional Malay band that performs for weddings as well as theatre and dance productions. They have been actively involved in annual festivals at Esplanade, such as Muara and Pesta Raya – Malay Festival of Arts, as well as international festivals such as the recent International Folklore Festival 2016 in Elk, Poland. Their members come from different backgrounds such as dikir barat, reggae and even theatre. Since they started, the band has expanded their line-up with the recruitment of their second band, and they hope to keep expanding. NKS aims to introduce traditional Malay music to a wider audience. Besides expressing their passion in music, NKS also aims to create a platform for budding musicians and singers to learn and experience traditional Malay music.
