Bangkit

Bangkit is a Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia (SABM) initiative aimed at giving the youth of Malaysia a musical platform to express their feelings, hopes and dreams for their country.

Youths were encouraged to explore their musical prowess and participate by sending in original musical arrangements and lyrics; 20 of which were shortlisted through online popularity polls then sent to a panel of the country’s top music industry professionals to whittle down to the final 11.

Once these 11 were decided, the mix of first-timers, up-and-coming, and established artists begin recording the Bangkit album, some with the guidance of acclaimed music producer Yuri Wong.

The result of which, is an eclectic mix of genres and styles, from pop to r &b and rock, each giving a unique voice to a showcase of not just their talent but also of what is at the heart of Malaysia’s youth, today.
