Busking

Busking provides a fusion between arts and politics, and this is what the street performers in Penang are bringing to this year’s Local Democracy Month (LDM). Singing folk songs and performing sketches that
speak of the people’s struggles and beliefs, busking has been an old-age art from around the world that truly portrays democracy: performances for the people, by the people. Featuring Rahmat Haron (KL), Aishah (KL), Adel (KL) and Blu (Brazil), Orkes Rakyat Tertindas (KL), and Ray Cheong (KL/Penang).

Busking merupakan gabungan antara seni dan politik, dan inilah apa yang akan diaksikan oleh buskers di Pulau Pinang pada Local Democracy Month (LDM) tahun ini. Dengan menyanyi lagu-lagu rakyat dan melakonkan sketsa yang melakarkan perjuangan dan kepercayaan rakyat, busking merupakan antara seni yang paling tertua di dunia yang dengan jayanya menggambarkan apa itu demokrasi: seni untuk rakyat, dari rakyat. Persembahan oleh Rahmat Haron (KL), Aishah (KL), Adel (KL) and Blu (Brazil), Orkes Rakyat Tertindas (KL), and Ray Cheong (KL/Penang).
