Music runs in the family: After initial objections from her parents to pursue music, Ainul graduated with a BA in music from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) and plays the piano and cello while her brother Ahmad Fahmi, 37, plays the classical guitar. “She did an excellent version and made it her own. On how her father should be remembered, she said: “It would be great if names of composers and lyricists are mentioned together with the singers’ names and their songs every time they are played. Both songs sweetly expressed togetherness in overcoming adversity and achieving dreams. A year later, Syed Haron died at age 65 when he was Universiti Tun Razak (Unirazak) registrar. Glasgow-based Ainul said her father was a devoted family man and a pillar of the music and education communities. Syed Haron’s brilliance was immutable – his lyrics for uplifting gems like ‘Warisan’ and ‘Mulanya Di Sini’ (also known as ‘Sama Sama’) were immaculate. All Rights Reserved. We have been trying to correct the common flaw since Abah was around.”.
Syed Haron is thought to have begun as a full-fledged songwriter when Rhythm 67 was disbanded in 1968 after Syed Ahmad moved to Kuala Lumpur. Syed Haron’s unwavering spirit came from his humble beginnings. The classic, ‘Mulanya Di Sini’ (It begins here), composed by Royston Sta Maria and recorded by Freedom, is an anthemic singalong that has thrust at least a dozen commercials into the limelight. “He got satisfaction when he completed a song and the icing on the cake was when it got recorded, aired or performed,” she said. At 15 when he was in Form Three, he was the drummer of Rhythm 67, a band formed by Syed Ahmad with three other students of English College Johor Bahru.

PETALING JAYA: The late songwriter and composer Syed Haron Syed Ahmad was a magnetic force in Malay music for decades but few Malaysians know he eloquently stirred the emotions of the nation. Friends shared her posting and it soon got the attention of then minister of information and multimedia Ahmad Shabery Cheek who subsequently met Syed Haron. Syed Haron’s first recorded song, dedicated to his wife Siti Rohaini Kassim who he married in 1977, was ‘Hanya Lagu’ by Sudirman. In 1980, when Sudirman wanted to record a patriotic song, he amended the lyrics to embody Malaysia rather than focus on the separation. Clearly, Syed Haron’s greatest moments are part of the national palate and a strong testimonial for composers and lyricists to enjoy a bigger pride of place in the pantheon of Malaysian music innovation. “He was excited because it meant that he could share what Warisan meant to him. Was Syed Haron sad that he was not recognised nationally when ‘Warisan’ formed the basis of Merdeka Day in 2014?
One who did not seek accolades. Last month, local soul-jazz singer Poovaa’s moving rendition of ‘Warisan’, made popular by the late Sudirman Arshad, gripped Malaysians. How did the family react to Poovaa’s cover version of Warisan?
He wrote ‘Warisan’ after Singapore separated from Malaysia on Aug 9, 1965. He was born in 1950, the fourth of seven children, to hospital assistant Syed Ahmad Syed Haron and nurse Sharifah Shekhon Syed Khalid. He and Rhythm 67 guitarist, Hanan, formed The Wheels with two friends, Najib (bass) and Abid (keyboard and vocals).

Syed Ahmad made the melodies with English words while Syed Haron did the Bahasa Melayu translation, Ainul said. Siti Rohaini was a dancer and singer while Syed Haron was drummer in the Kesuma band. In 1985, the group had a hit song, ‘Dalam Kenangan’. Pertiwi soup kitchen founder Munirah Abdul Hamid urges Malaysians to comply with SOPs for the safety of others who are more vulnerable. He also played drums for ‘The Fifth Sound’, UM’s Fifth Residential College band. Syed Haron was a self-taught musician. Syed Haron also formed the teenage duo Anuar (Zain) and Ellina, wrote a number of songs for them and produced some of their albums. He met Siti Rohaini in University of Malaya (UM) where they were pioneer members of Kumpulan Kesenian Universiti Malaya (Kesuma), the university’s cultural group set up by then vice chancellor Ungku Abdul Aziz. She said more than 200 of her father’s songs were recorded by various singers including ‘Hujan’ by Sudirman, ‘Mawar Putih Untuk Mama’ by the late Sharifah Aini, and ‘Pulang Di Hari Raya’ by Noorkumalasari. We were happy he was in the limelight,” she said, adding that Syed Haron was invited to the ceremony on Merdeka morning but was unable to make it. He played the guitar and keyboard, and also taught the gamelan in UM but his main instrument was the drums. In 1985, the group had a hit song, ‘Dalam Kenangan’. “He was surprised but also happy and proud,” said Ainul. “The line she sang was ‘Betapa, di bumi ini ku melangkah’ when the actual word is ‘Bertapak’.
Since he was Johor Bahru-born, it was how he felt then. On his birthday on Aug 15 that year, Ainul posted a celebration picture of her father, his brother Syed Ahmad Feisal and of herself on Facebook as they were born in the same month.
