Sanisah Huri – The Lady in Concert celebrates the achievements of one of Singapore’s greatest entertainment icons through her journey and career over five decades.
Renowned for her powerful and sultry voice, Sanisah built her reputation as a successful teen star emerging as a technically-skilled singer and successful recording artist who is regarded as one of the region’s most popular vocalists in pop music.
The 90-minute concert will be a momentous occasion for Singaporeans and her fans to reminisce their golden memories with her evergreen songs across diverse genres including joget, pop, keroncong, asli and modern.
“This is a first-ever concert by Sanisah Huri, presented by Esplanade as a recognition of her significant contribution to the Malay music scene. Sanisah dedicates this concert to her fans and everyone who loves her music. It is a great opportunity not to be missed as she will be singing 18 of her most popular songs that captures the soul of her 50-year journey in the entertainment scene.” – Rusedah Tawahid, Concert Director.

Sanisah Huri began her music career at the young age of 15 when she was selected by Kassim Masdor, one of Singapore’s greatest music composers, during a singing audition for a film produced by Shaw Brothers' Malay Film Production Limited, A-Go-Go '67 (1967). She was given an opportunity to sing two songs, Siapa Gerangan and Alam Seni, accompanied by The Terwellos.
Following that, she recorded two other songs, Si Baju Hijau and Cuti Sekolah, accompanied by The Hooks. In 1969, Sanisah recorded the song Selalu accompanied by Orkes Dendang Perindu, led by Kassim Masdor.
In 1970, she began recording her songs accompanied by Indonesian band Clique Fantastique. She recorded two EPs, Malam Minggu and Mana Utama. One of her songs, Sedih Sekelip Mata was jointly penned by Kassim Masdor and Yusnor Ef and became a hit. Besides singing solo, she also showcased her ability to sing in a duet, with A. Ramlie in Rambut and Hello Hello Sayang and M. Ramlee in Wajah Cermin Hatimu. Sanisah last recorded a song in 1986.
Over five decades in the entertainment scene, Sanisah has recorded over 120 songs, many of which became hits.
