Gadis Kebaya, a musical duo, is conceived and produced by pop pop music, the premier boutique Jazz music label in Malaysia.
Exotic and elegant, like Old Malaya, it embraces Nanyang music by refreshing, re-imagining the renditions of various popular Malaysian music legends: Dato. P. Ramlee, Saloma, Dato Sheila Majid, Teresa Teng and Lee Yee, to quote some. It is as "muhibbah" as it is harmonious, reflecting the multi- faceted cultures of Malaysia in the 60s and early 70s.
Gadis Kebaya features 2 songstresses,
Z Yan (Chinese) and Ezza (Malay), whose voices reflect a classic and timeless quality befitting the music. (They have a combined 25 years of experience.)
Image-styling is helmed by Eric Choong, a renowned veteran in the fashion industry famous for his Kebaya and Aseana designs.
Pearlly Chua, a veteran thespian / film actress cum coach, guides and mentors Gadis Kebaya in Artistic Expressions.
Gadis Kebaya, entertaining in nature, weaves music and song in fine harmony to showcase the fabric of rich cultural heritage of our Malaysian society in a modern musical context.
