Zainal Abidin

Abidin began his music career singing having a Malaysian soft rock and roll clothing, Headwind, but still left after making a decision that his part didn’t allow him to to explore or celebrate the cultural customs of his nation.

Subsequently he got a far more moderate position and started to test in musical fusion, influenced by Globe Music leading lamps Papa Wema and Youssou N’Dour.
