  1. Salam,
    I’m in the midst of doing research on the history of Malay film and music. As we all know that Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah was an accomplished musician himself, I’m looking for some facts, as well as pictures of Almarhum DYMM Tuanku playing the saxophone with his RISHAH COMBO. If possible, a group photograph of the combo including singers like Mustaffa Osman and the rest.

  2. Salam,

    Thanks so much, M.
    Looking forward to that.
    I also have with me some personal collections of old photographs portraying Almarhum Sultan Idris 1 dated back in 1918.
    Maybe someday I’ll post these photographs at Sembangkuala.
