Lan Trouble, an arrogant rockstar, hits rock bottom when he fails to compose new music. He goes on a journey to find himself that brings him back to his roots and meets his father, the OG musician, Osman Gebu. His father teaches him respect, open-mindedness, courage and kindness, imparting wisdom and advice through Malay folk songs and nursery rhymes, as well as elements of dikir barat. This multifaceted storytelling session explores colours of music in genres such as rock, reggae, pop and Melayu asli through music, humour and fun interactions.
