Censoring Sad Banter

Kam Raslan | Shamaine Othman | Azmyl Yunor

Censoring

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam is joined by two iconic figures in the Malaysian arts industry—triple-threat and comic Shamaine Othman and singer-songwriter and academic Azmyl Yunor—to examine the magic of sad songs, the importance of stage banter and the LPF’s stance on censorship. Kam recently discovered the secret to writing a powerful sad song through YouTube and asks the table what type of song makes them shed a tear. Meanwhile, Azmyl as a seasoned performer stresses on the importance of connecting with the crowd through a show to humanise the performance. And having went all the way to Singapore to watch Hustlers, Shamaine challenges the logic behind Malaysian censorship to outright ban a film about strippers.
