"Mereka ialah band rock muktamad selama 40 dekad ini. Muzik mereka mendefinasikan keseluruhan spektrum yang dipanggil rock n' roll. Sekian lama, band ini menjadi telah paksi dan rujukan band-band rock yang pernah wujud di Singapura dan Malaysia.

17th - 20th AUG 2000 - Ramli Sarip performed in the Rainforest Music Festival at Sarawak Cultural Village.

Ramli Sarip gets in tune with nature at the   Rainforest World Music Festival 2000. This is the third event of this nature, held in the land of the headhunters, White Rajahs and Orang Utans, Sarawak, from August 18 to 20.
The festival brings together singers and musicians from all the continents against the backdrop of one of the world's oldest rainforests. The music will flow under the jungle-covered Mount Santubong, bordering on the South China Sea.
Beyond the concerts, there will also be music workshops and master classes, held in the longhouses of the hospitable indigenous Sarawak folk.
For Ramli, this will be an ideal opportunity to explore new avenues for his acoustic music. He will be indulging in rainforest rhythms, which are already evident in some of his previous albums, and he can develop his fusion instincts, allowing his folk leanings to intertwine with the natural rhythms and melodies of Sarawak. For his concert, Ramli will be accompanied by acoustic instruments such as guitars, drums, rebana and the bamboo flute. As a bonus, and to display the cross-border nature of world music, Ramli and his band will jam with Tuku Kame, a Sarawakian group which won the 1998 MTV Band Alert contest in Kuala Lumpur.
Ramli's trip to Sarawak was made possible through the kind assistance of Holiday Inn Kuching, Sarawak Tourism Board and Eureka Renovation.
Venue: Sarawak Cultural Village
Date: 17th - 20th August 2000
Ticket: RM40 for 3 day concert and workshop
RM20 for 1 day concert and workshop

Apa khabar Samri,
Boleh anda bantu saya? Saya orang Inggeris. Saya belajar bahasa
Melayu.Saya sudah diberi satu taip dari radio dari Malaysia. Ada satu lagu yang saya suka banyak. Mula-mula saya diberitahu bahawa penyanyi lagu ini ialah Jamal Abdillah. Kemudian orang lain beritahu saya bahawa penyanyi bukan Jamal Abdillah tapi Ramli Sarip. Tapi ia tak tahu nama lagu ini. Panjangnya lagu ini tujuh minit (sangat panjang?). Kawan saya di Malaysia akan beli CD untuk saya kalau kita tahu nama lagu. Di bawah saya sudah tulis sedikit perkataan dari lagunya:
Dekat permulaan:  
   .... lalu dimulia
   .... semuanya, kerana dia, kepada dia
   .... menghilang
   .... mendengar berita tentang janjinya
   .... menjadi papa
Dekat hujung:
   .... dengar, gerak, rasa, fikir, kata, semuanaya
   .... budak, anak kecil, remaja, raja, rasa mati
   .... kereta, gedung, istana, .....
Saya tak berbahasa baik Melayu. Oleh itu, mungkin beberapa
perkataan dari lagu tidak betul.Kalau anda tak tahu nama lagunya, kenalkan seseorang yang boleh bantu saya? Terima kasih untuk membaca email ini.
