Support our Women Composers CD project

Award winning young composer Jessica Cho has a dream, to put together an anthology of Malaysian women composers as a tribute to the rich and colourful sounds penned by the country's leading talents.

The CD will be a showcase of how far Malaysia's contemporary music scene has come over the last decade, with compositions that can stand alongside the best in the region, indeed the world.

One of Malaysia's leading composers Adeline Wong has composed a new string quartet work specially for the CD, which will also include ethnic inspired compositions by Jyotsna Prakash and Isabella Pek.

The cover art has also been specially commissioned from Malaysiakini senior journalist Susan Loone, who is an avid artist who explores among others, women's themes in her unique and audacious artwork.
