WPM: Word, Play, Music is a musical showcase of five poetry works inspired by dikir barat lyrics, poetry and the music of Hidayat Nordin, reimagined into pop music. Interwoven with word play, this presentation will showcase two young talented singers, Nurul Jannah (16) and Nurani (16) along with rappers Haziman (22) and Zam’0 Deen (23).


They will be accompanied by three musicians—Patrick David Pasaribu, Faris Z and percussionist Naim. Together, the collective will put on an artistic play on the words and poetic music of the Singapore poet Nordin. The showcase promises an array of emotions and high energy vibes, coupled with the fresh play on words reimagined from traditional texts.
