A taste of Kopisusu charmed with a strong dash of jazz - 90 minutes of seamless concert play featuring memorable Nanyang flavored songs infused with Malayan sentiments of the 1950s and 1960s – a decade that offered a menu of whimsical yet modern entertainment & dramatic music presented in theatrical fashion, an era where the ones who entertain and those who are entertained live in, an era of all kinds of possibility.
This concert play is about a one-day life of a group of materially poor but spiritually rich musicians who conceive a dream in their shabby home; that the joy of music penetrates time and space to pervade the air with a sweet, dreamy and free-flowing rhapsody that is a modern nostalgic interpretation of old-time Nanyang.
Kopisusu was nominated for eight awards including Best Solo & Group Performance, Best Musical Director, Best Production Value and won the grand-prize of Best Solo Performance (Yudi Yap) and Best Ensemble in Malaysia’s 11th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards 2014 which recognizes excellence in the performing arts..
