Quick Overview

Spanning from the 1960s till 1990s, A Song of the Wind is the story of Singapore Malays in an impatient emerging independent nation, where they live in poverty and associated social ills, and are marginalised in a land they lived in for centuries. Then, the 1979 Islamic Revolution of Iran sends shockwaves through an already fragile community, caught between spreading Islamic fundamentalism and an intolerant paranoid state. (Translated from Malay.)

A Song of the Wind - which spans from 1960s till 1990s - tells the story of a twenty-one-year-old Singapore Malay remembering his childhood and his teenage years in Kampung Tawakal, before his family moved into a Housing Development Board (HDB) flat in Ang Mo Kio.

It is the story about him falling in and out of love, studying at the Raffles Institution, confronting the stirrings of manhood, discovered the meaning of friendship, and treading a precarious religious path. His journey, too, collides somewhat dramatically with the real-time history of an emerging independent Singapore nation.
