Whether you’re stuck in traffic on your way to visit a relative or simply need a tune to amp up the Raya atmosphere at home, check out these 2019 Hari Raya releases:
Tak Dapat Raya (Floor 88 & Baby Shima)
With 4.5 million YouTube views so far, Tak Dapat Raya is fast becoming one of the most popular Raya tunes of the year, and we can definitely see why.
Besides the fact that the song is a catchy, toe-tapping number, the music video is fun and hilarious.
Chronicling a group of youngsters’ attempt to look for a place to celebrate Hari Raya, it has an entertaining storyline which combines elements of horror and comedy.
Bersyukur Seadanya (Hael Husaini)
Hael Husaini has been churning out hit after hit since 2016’s Jampi, and he might just have another one in his hands with Bersyukur Seadanya.
Combining contemporary and traditional music elements, the track has all the elements of a classic Raya tune but with a modern twist.
Menjelang Hari Raya (Colour Of Voices)
A capella group Colour Of Voices breathes new life to this old favourite, boasting solid beatboxing, smooth harmonies and a glorious high note courtesy of vocalist Joe towards the end.
Menanti Di Aidilfitri (Wany Hasrita, Wani Syaz, Muna Shahirah & Wan Azlyn)
Get your tissues ready before you hit the play button on Menanti Di Aidilfitri.
The four talented singers, who play sisters in the music video, sing about celebrating the festivities without their father.
Selamat Berhari Raya (Ariff Bahran & Sarah Suhairi)
Up-and-coming singers Ariff Bahran and Sarah Suhairi – who rose to prominence on reality singing series Big Stage last year – may be new to the industry but the two prove they have what it takes, with their voices blending beautifully together in this Raya duet.
