Wani Ardy : Senikatawati

At times I only blog about my pictures and my street photography stuff. Amdist all of this, I am very in touch with the local music scene, not as much as some people I know. I have been in touch with it for a while and I am very much blessed to be in Malaysia and to see all these wonderful talent. New talents who just blow ur mind away and the seasoned ones who still proves that we in Malaysia have really good musicians around.

I want to talk about a good friend, who is a singer songwriter and she is unique in her own way. The first time I met her was during the OMG sessions at Food Foundry, Petaling Jaya. Her rendition of “Falling Slowly” from the Academy Award winning movie for BEST SONG “ONCE” just blew me away. Her laid back and suave voice just spoke to me that people who sing doesnt need to be right on your face to send a message through songs but just singing from the heart matters. So, I give to you WANI ARDY .

Her small stature and sweet looks may give people the thought that this young girl is your girl next door but when she sings, that is the thing that makes you wonder “WHERE on earth she writes like that ? “During the OMG session, she sang her song titled ” Teori Lucu”... which means ‘Funny Theory’ direct translation from Malay. I was really overjoyed with the down to earth lyrics that speaks about life around her… Here is the song :

TEORI LUCU

Nananana nananana nana, nana
Nananana nananana nana, nana

Dunia hari ini, semua mengaku seni
Lebih baik jadi diri sendiri
Negara hari ini, kurang lelaki kualiti
Jangan salahkan skeptikal mentaliti

Kau apa kurangnya? Hip tapi sempit
Siapa kata lelaki dan perempuan tak bisa menjadi kawan karib?
Lucu!

Nananana nananana cukup, cukup
Nananana nananana cukup, cukup

Ada apa dengan Valentine?
Bila ku ada teman-teman, cita-cita, masa depan
Kau mungkin fikir ku “in denial” atau ku suka yang sejenis
Oh tak mungkin, hak ku memilih

Jadi aku solo, tak bermakna bolos
Memang ku sendiri, tak bermaksud aku mahu kau punya kekasih
Lucu!

Nananana nananana cukup, cukup
Nananana nananana cukup, cukup

Aku selesa menjadi aku
Dan engkau bukannya aku
Aku tak perlu teori lucumu
Cuma buat sakit perut

And the other song that she performed was “Orang Kecil” which means “Litte People”.  It basically says about be thankful and grateful for the things around you even though you may think you are small in things you do :

ORANG KECIL

Hari ini ku lihat awan biru dan hijaunya dedaun
Ku lupa betapa indahnya kehidupan yang sebenar

Tersesak dalam cita, diuji dan diduga
Namun aku ini hanya orang kecil

Jauhnya cinta, jauhnya bahagia
Lelah gelita, kosongnya jiwa
Ku impikan bulan, ku terjatuh di bintang
Bersyukur apa ada, ku ‘kan sampai ke sana

Hari ini ku lihat teman ku dan separuhnya bersatu
Ku lupa betapa indahnya kehidupan yang sebenar

Tersungkur bangun lagi, komplikasi duniawi
Namun aku ini hanya orang kecil

One of my favorite songs from her is called “Knock Knock Wonderment” and as usual there must be a song on love, and I totallty love the whole melancholic feel of the guitar riffs and lyrics in this song :

KNOCK KNOCK WONDERMENT

Knock, knock, who’s there?

Are you love? Are you lust?

Knock, knock, who’s there?

Are you a poison? Are you a cure?

You see, I have a love-and-hate relationship with love itself
I don’t intend to make it worse or change my orientation

The world is too spontaneous for declaration, whatsoever
Maybe we should just go back to the days of secret admirers
Where love letters and chocolates were slipped into lucky lockers
Life was full excitement
But soon you’ll get tired, soon you’ll get tired

Knock, knock, who’s there?

Are you the one? Or, are you like, number ten?

Knock, knock, who’s there?

Why did you come in?
I… don’t think I invited you in

You see, I have a love-and-hate relationship with love itself
I don’t intend to make it worse or good lord, change my orientation??

The world is too spontaneous for confirmation, whatsoever
Maybe we should just go back to the days of secret admirers
Where love letters and chocolates were slipped into lucky lockers
Life was full excitement
But soon you’ll get tired, soon you’ll get tired

Soon you’ll get tired
Soon you’ll get tired
Soon you’ll get tired
Soon you’ll get tired
Soon you’ll get tired
Of wonderment

These are some of the songs that really spoke to me and I would recommend it to all of you and for more information Wani Ardy, please check out her MySpace account of go to her WEBSITE or even just YOUTUBE her name and you will find a long array of videos of her performing in various places around Kuala Lumpur.  I am very privilleged of knowing her and taking pictures during her gigs once in a while.

So, people out ther dont forget always remember to support the local music scene and listen to Wani’s stuff who is one of the many great talents that are around Kuala Lumpur.
