Kampung is the Malay word which means “village”. I grew up in a city, and never have such experience of village life. However, it’s my dream to have a different life in the kampung and through this piece, it shall express the frustrated feeling towards the village life.
甘榜,即马来文 Kampung 的译文,乡村的意思。作者自小就在城市成长,并没有长期 亲身在乡间生活的体验以及回忆。而这部作品,纯粹只是作者自身对远离大城市的乡间生 活一种情感的抒发及想象,通过音乐来表现心中所向往的那种纯朴乡村风情。
