Join us in this 2-hour Eid / Hari Raya (“Day of celebration”) special to mark the end of Ramadan 2018, with Hari Raya-celebrating guests Hanisah Rizaudin and Nabilah Said.
We share our favourite Raya songs, talk about how we celebrate, what “Balik Kampung” (Returning home/to the village) means to Singaporeans vs Malaysians vs British Malaysians, what Ramadan means to each of us, and why Raya songs are also tinged with sadness.
Selamat Hari Raya / Lebaran!
