P. Ramlee Superstar

Ein tolles Video des malayischen Musikers P. Ramlee auf seiner “Bunyi Gitar”. Die Musik ist schon geil, und richtig hammer wird es, wenn die Tänzer auftreten. Ich schmeiss mich mal wieder weg!!!

P. Ramlee war übrigens auch Schauspieler und Regisseur, und er hat sein eigenes Denkmal in Kuala Lumpur (s.u.).

P.Ramlee’s big break came on 1 June 1948 when he was spotted by Tamil film director B. S. Rajhans. The director was impressed by Ramlee, and in 1949 he was cast in the film Nasib (Fate). Seven years later, Ramlee directed his first film Penarik Becha (The Trishaw Man). In 1957, Ramlee would act in the first of his Bujang Lapok (Dowdy Bachelors) comedic films that he acted along S. Shamsuddin along with Aziz Sattar, which are still popular among the modern Malay film watchers.On 29 May 1973 P.Ramlee died at the age of 44 due to heart problems and was buried in Jalan Ampang Muslim Cemetery, Kuala Lumpur. In 1986, in honour of his contributions to the Malaysian entertainment industry, the P. Ramlee Memorial was set up in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. In 1982, Jalan Parry in the KL city centre has been renamed Jalan P. Ramlee in his honor. He was posthumously awarded with the Malaysian honorific title Tan Sri in the early 1990s.
I like the music and I love the dancers :-)))
