Photo: Ella, Ramli Sarip, M. Nasir & Spider @ Konsert Untukmu Loloq, Istana Budaya

While the rest of the younger population was drenched at the Justin Bieber concert at stadium Merdeka; we were dry, happy and comfy while enjoying a special preview concert of Untukmu Loloq at Istana Budaya.

The tribute to one of the greatest Malaysian songwriters, the late Rosli Khamis (1957-2008) or better known as Loloq featured four of top Malaysia's pop-rock giants no less. We've got Ella, Ramli Sarip, Spider and M. Nasir (listed according to sequence of appearance).

We love most of his songs. Brilliant lyricist!

There were also some sketches thrown in by Hasnul Rahmat who plays Loloq, Azrul Raja Lawak and Azreeen Mohd Nasir. But somehow we didn't get the purpose of the sketches. Was it supposed to be funny? What did it try to say?

I was expecting more info on this creative human called Loloq. Who was Loloq? How did he contribute to the Malaysian music scene? I was looking for genuine heartfelt tributes from the artistes who have worked with him before. But all of them are cramped into a video montage at the beginning of the show...Somehow I think the concert lack the "tribute factor". It is more like a "Let's-sing-Loloq-songs" concert.

Anyway, I suggest concert goers to come early to Istana Budaya and browse through the mini exhibition at the foyer and read about this great lyricist called Loloq. You will learn something about him from there. Also check out his hand written lyrics sheet on the display.

Anyway, enjoy the photos.....

I heart ELLA. :D

Papa Rock, Ramli Sarip in action.

The only duet of the night - Rock Queen vs Papa Rock! Terbaik!

Gosok! Jangan Tak Gosok! Tam Spider rocking it out!

Sifu M. Nasir, a long time collaborator with Loloq.

Finale - Mentera Semerah Padi brought the house down!!!

A short PC was held after the show. The idea for this concert is the brainchild of our Defence Minister - Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (middle)

The proceed of the concert will be channeled to the widow of the late Loloq and his children. They were also given free flights from Firefly to Kuching for holiday. Yay!

I wanna share a snippet of Bagaikan Puteri, originally sung by Farra. It is one of my favourite Malay songs. I like it and I like it better when Ella sings it! :D

Konsert "Untuk Mu Loloq" featuring M.Nasir, Ramli Sarip, Spider, Hasrul Rahmat & Ella will be showing @ Istana Budaya, Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur from 22 - 24 April 2011. Get your tickets at

Was it an acoustic performance? somehow i feel like a tribute is always associated with acoustic/unplugged performance.
