Noh Salleh’s band Hujan celebrated their 16th anniversary last year with four special themed concerts. The four themes signified different eras in the band’s history, from their 2008 EP ‘1, 2, 3, GO!’, to their 2010 single ‘Kotak Hati’ and a reference to their 2012 album ‘Sang Enemy’. The band’s latest release came in the form of the EP ‘Pelangi Dan Kau’ in 2020.
Lunadira wrapped up two live showcases for her collaborative 2020 EP ‘Tangerine’ with producer Reddi Rocket just last month. The singer last appeared on Malaysian rapper Dinho’s debut album ‘1999’, lending her vocals to the track ‘Honest’.
