It was a little dark from the circle seats but little Joshie managed to count the number of musicians with their instruments in the various sections of the 42-strong group. The orchestra was lead by Amri Amin, music director since 2009. His flair in music arrangement, together with the experienced singers on board, helped retain the original flavour of most of Kartina's songs.

It was a fascinating music and cultural experience which took me back to Kampong Wak Tanjong and Kampong Melaka days in the 1960s. Thank you Esplanade.
