ANGIN KENCANG | THE GALE

Malaysian singer-songwriter Noh Salleh has performed in Singapore several times as the frontman of popular indie rock band Hujan, but this show will be his first as a solo act. Unlike Hujan's upbeat repertoire, his solo venture, backed by the Restoe Iboe Band, will feature a more eclectic set of songs from the album Angin Kencang.
