Comprising theatre performer Rizman Putra and sound designer-producer Safuan Johari, NADA (which puns on the Spanish word for “nothing” and the Malay word for “tone”) combines music, art and history in the most cryptic of ways. Putra’s brilliance is exemplified in his all-white attire (complete with fresh face paint) and contemporary dance moves. Pair this with Johari’s impeccable arrangements, and they synthesise into a captivating musical performance that’s best experienced live. The duo digs through a rich archive of Malay pop from the ’ 60s to ’ 80s to create completely fresh retro tunes. They’ve done multimedia projects and performances at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and the opening of National Gallery Singapore.
