“Sky Songs” breathes new ethnic-pop life into the ancestral songs that her longhouse-dwelling grand aunties have passed down to her, it’s a blend of dreamy, lullaby-like vocals over a base of world music”
– South China Morning Post.
“Alena Murang’s songs evoke both the mystery of a faraway people and instant identification with their reverence for the sky”
– World Listening Post
Famed as a sape’ songstress, Alena sings in the endangered Kenyah and Kelabit languages and is the first woman to professionally play the lute instrument of the highland tribes of Borneo. Alena has carried the enchanting sounds of the sape’ to over 20 countries, from Iceland to Australia to Thailand to the USA.
With sold out concerts in Sarawak and Taipei, Alena Murang takes flight in KL. Sky Songs, the show, is named after Alena Murang’s second album, her songs inspired by elements of the sky – the thunder, rain, the sun, the morning mist, the stars, the moon; and contemplates how all of nature interacts.
