About TARAKUCHA!

 

TARAKUCHA! is the Terrer-Menerrer Big Band with a Vintage Malaysian Twist. The brainchild of Malaysian singer and actor, Sean Ghazi, who sings lead vocals with Kebaya Jazz songstress Ida Mariana, Tarakucha! features a 10-piece big band led by musical director, Nish Tham, with supporting vocals by The Kuchettes -  Izlyn Ramli, Maya Tan and Ruzana Ibrahim.

The Tarakucha! repertoire celebrates Malaysia's musical heritage with songs by the nation's great composers, artistes and songwriters including P. Ramlee, Sudirman, and Jimmy Boyle among others, while taking inspiration from global influences, and also featuring their own original compositions written and performed in the same nostalgic style. Its big band sound transcends the musical genres of jazz, latin and modern classics packaged with humour, culture and contemporary nuances.
