Valuable Treasure


For this Ramadan, we have two songs to celebrate the festive aspects of the holy month and to showcase some cross language singing: Harta Berharga ('valuable treasure') by Michela Thea and Bie Zhi Ji ('take care, my friend') by Rani Pancarani. Though Bei Zhi Ji is in Mandarin, the chorus, which sounds like 'Ehsan Boh' is in the Yi language (closer to Burmese, spoken in Yunnan and vicinity). 'Ehsan Boh' also translates as 'take care, my friend'. Wishing Muslim readers Eid Mubarak and an early Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
