There are a lot of people trying to make the best of the current situation plaguing the world…thousands of people in some sort of self-isolation, whether through government decree or a decision on their own to keep themselves and their fellow citizens safe by staying the fuck home.
Yesterday, a bunch of Malaysian punks came together under a project called Punk Rock Akapellat to release one of the coolest things…an acapella version of an anti-racism song originally written by Malaysian punk band Soul Savior.
Punk Rock Akapellat’s members include: Salman of the band Soul Savior, Shah of The Mindless Show and Multiverse GD, Akmal of TIM and Skunkfix, Adib of The Needles, and also Hasbi of TIM. The song Sifar Rasisma (Zero Racism) was originally recorded back in 2017 with plans to release a music video for it. But due to a clash of schedules that never materialized.
Now that Malaysia’s government has imposed a Movement Control Order (MCO) on the entire country, people are stuck at home with plenty of time on their hands. So there was no reason to delay this anymore…all vocals were recorded at Guerilla Studio.
Below…please enjoy this INCREDIBLE song brilliantly sung by a group of awesome Malaysian punks about a great topic.
Go follow the band Soul Savior at the following links – after the acapella version below, you can hear the original song.
