This initiative begins with a Puisi writing competition opened to all youths primarily from Secondary Schools, Centralised Institutions/Junior Colleges & Institutes of Higher Learning (IHL). Writers of the selected works will go through a 1-day workshop under the mentorship of Md Khair Md Yasin, Rafaat Haji Hamzah and Cikgu Khaziah Yem. These selected works will be transformed into original musical works by a team of youth composers led by NA Artistic Director, Zulkifli M. Amin. From an original Puisi, to an original piece of music; this combination will be performed at a concert by ‘Nusantara – an ensemble by Nusantara Arts’, which comprises of youth musicians. Nusantara uses kroncong instruments to deliver the original works, which will be performed with the essence of traditional Malay rhythms.
