Music and Songs from Singapore

51SLPOBuHJL._SX362_BO1,204,203,200_Terry from Singapore wrote to me about folk songs and children’s songs from Singapore. Here’s his letter…

I’m not really sure how many Singapore songs are really out there. As this is a country made up of three major cultures, with a British influence, many songs come from Chinese, Malay/Indonesian, and Indian cultures.

This book may be of interest, "Singalong – A collection of Singapore Songs".

Here is the list of songs in the book:

    Terry wrote, “The song Injet Injet Semut (from Indonesia) is sung by Malay children in Singapore (and in Malaysia). It is debatable where it really comes from.

    It’s a hand game. Here are some instructions on how to play.”
