Jalur Gemilang

Jalur Gemilang, the flag anthem is written as dedication and pride of the Malaysian national flag. It is performed on Hari Merdeka, the nation’s independence day on 31 August every year. The original anthem Benderaku was written by Malaysian songwriter Tony Fonseka. After the flag was given the name Jalur Gemilang, the flag anthem was updated in 1997 to reflect this change. This was then followed by an introduction of a new flag anthem, with arrangements by Malaysian songwriter Pak Ngah and lyrics by Malaysian songwriter Siso Kopratasa.

Malaysia Wind Band Initiative

Music in the form of national anthem and patriotic songs were and remain essential components to bind our society together under the imagined nation-of-intent. This is especially true for Malaysia upon its independence in 1957. These songs are popular and accepted by Malaysian as a part of the national identity and such affinities are supported by the songs’ repeated broadcast and consumption on national radio, television and social media platforms.

There are many versions of wind band arrangement available for these anthems and patriotic songs, but most of them are in the form of hand-written manuscript. This particular arrangement was type-set and re-arranged to fit the modern wind band instrumentation.
