Ruh

Barangkali rasa terindah hari ini adalah apabila para penonton yang berbilang bangsa, agama, dan usia memilih untuk duduk dan dengar muzik kami, puisi kami, walau dihenyak hingar bingar hutan konkrit. Kami asalnya menjangka yang buruk - persembahan ditenggelami riuh rendah manusia - kerana sejujurnya apalah lagi yang berani hendak kami harapkan setelah ditimpa pelbagai cabaran sepanjang di JB. Sangkaan kami ternyata meleset. After the show, one of the audience who approached me was a non-Malay-speaking lady who told me that our performance moved her to tears despite the fact that she didn't understand the lyrics. She asked me, "What was it about? I felt like it was a dream." And she felt it right. The song was indeed about a dream. Dia menangkap ruh lagu kami sekadar dari bunyi dan bahasa tubuh. Allah. Isn't that amazing?
