KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Step into a world of enchantment and wonder as we invite you to experience an extraordinary retelling of Malaysian folklore in songs, specially curated for children of all ages. Delve into the rich tapestry of our cultural heritage and embark on an unforgettable adventure that will ignite imaginations and foster a love for our vibrant folklore.
The origins of Dondang Dongeng began with a simple question; Do Malaysians, especially kids, still know of our local folklores? While many of us grew up listening to the tales and songs of Disney, dreaming to be part of that world, did we still remember to find our way home and remember our own stories.
Dondang Dongeng is a quest in sharing the stories of treasured Malaysian folklore like the smart and mischievous Sang Kancil and legends of beautiful local princesses complete with important morals to take away, as we pass down these narratives, but in our own way. In songs and tunes, in celebration of our traditions. Of who we are, our past, our present and our future.
Helmed by a team of esteemed creatives such as Irena Taib, composer and member of The Impatient Sisters; Mia Palencia, renowned singer and songwriter; Melina William, musician and producer and other local talents that are highly sought-after in the music scene, Dondang Dongeng is craftily weaved into a dreamscape, filled with stories less remembered but hopefully not long forgotten. Stories as old as time, presented in the form of songs with a modern twist.
Let the songs awaken these folklores again. And let’s journey into this dreamscape together! If we continue to tell these stories, we might realise that we all share common narratives and that will lead us to the way home.
