Al-Quran Busker at Bukit Bintang
- Al-Quran Busker at Bukit Bintang 00:00
Still from the same night in the Bukit Bintang area, about a hundred meters from the MRT station, I recorded the voice of an Al-Quran reciters busker sitting on the sidewalk on a thin plastic carpet. He wears a kopiah, and in front of him is an Al-Quran holy book. Beside him, there is an open bag as a place for passersby to give money. This scene initially surprised me a bit because I had never encountered the same activity in Indonesia. But during my stay in Malaysia, I encountered these Al-Quran reciters several times in Kuala Lumpur and Melaka and then became somewhat accustomed. They chanted the holy verses of the Koran in the crowd.
That night, without using loudspeaker technology, the reciter voice mixed with the hustle and bustle of the streets in Bukit Bintang, the sound of police sirens, the sound of footsteps and people passing by with high intensity and also the sound of music singers from a distance.
