The unique thing about our band is that we are using traditional music instruments like sape, bungkau, kompang, seruling.... basically any instruments we can get, and then combining them with modern instruments like keyboard, bass and guitar, while infusing nature elements (rain, birds etc) to make music.
We are trying something new by combining modern western music and traditional Malaysian music. We hope that we can show the beauty of Malaysia through music.
Our first single is Sada Borneo (based on our band name)For more information visit :Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/sadaborneo?r..
