SMU Malay Language & Cultural Club (MLCC) aims to create a greater awareness and appreciation of our arts while cultivating strong bonds within the community, in and out of SMU. We have two performing arts wings - Rentak and Persadamu.
Rentak is the only Malay percussion ensemble at the tertiary level. Under the guidance of Singapore’s prominent Malay performing artists, members will learn about different Malay instruments and their various playing styles. Throughout the year, members also get multiple opportunities to perform in and out of SMU!
Persadamu is our biennial theatre production through which members bring to light pertinent issues found within the Malay community. It is a ground-up initiative of student-led teams with mentorship from distinguished figures in the Malay arts scene. You will get to learn the ins and outs of a production - acting, scriptwriting, producing, stage management and more!
Aside from our performing arts wings, MLCC also organises a multitude of bonding events such as movie night, outdoor events, arts workshops, and educational talks!
Monday & Wednesday
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Meetings and training days would be based on the event schedule.
