Chow Kit Road! introduces me to Sudirman’s Kulit

I went to watch Chow Kit Road! Chow Kit Road! last night at Istana Budaya. You can see some of the tweets I sent below after the show:

But for me, other than the issues that were raised in the story and the great performance, it really reminded me about how wonderful Sudirman was, and how unfortunate that I was that young when he died that I wasn’t able to appreciate so of his music. The song below is probably my new favourite of his now … especially considering the sentiments in the country over the past couple of weeks.

Kulit by Sudirman

Kulit kulit berbagai warna kulit
Kulit kulit kalau dicubit sakit
Kulit kulit di tengah panas perit
Sakit kulit ada jenis berjangkit

Kulit berjerawat boleh dirawat
Niat jahat bawa akibat
Kulit jangan dijadikan alasan
Memisahkan sesama insan
Bezanya zahir sahaja

Kulit kulit berbagai warna kulit
Kulit kulit kalau dicubit sakit
Kulit kulit di tengah panas perit
Sakit kulit ada jenis berjangkit

Sawo matang itu warna kulit ku
Putih kuning mungkin kulitmu
Yang hitam atau pun putih susu
Yang utama hati budi mu
Hati budi mu

Kulit kulit berbagai warna kulit
Kulit kulit kalau dicubit sakit
Kulit kulit di tengah panas perit
Sakit kulit ada jenis berjangkit

Anak anak itu (lihat)
Mereka bersatu (jangan)
Diajar mereka (jangan)
Beza membeza

Kulit kulit berbagai warna kulit
Kulit kulit kalau dicubit sakit
Kulit kulit di tengah panas perit
Sakit kulit ada jenis berjangkit

Kulit kulit berbagai warna kulit
Kulit kulit kalau dicubit sakit
Kulit kulit di tengah panas perit
Sakit kulit ada jenis berjangkit.
