Ramli Sarip ‘SADAQA’

Ramli Sarip or PapaRock as he was affectionately called, is an iconic figure in the Nusantara music scene. Ramli shot to fame with his pioneering rock group Sweet Charity that was set up in 1967. His last concert with his band, Sweet Charity in 2009 at the Esplanade was a sold out. Generally accepted as the ‘father-figure’ by the artistes community on both sides of the causeway, this recipient of 1998 COMPASS Artistic Excellence Award is an all-rounder singer, musician, producer, composer and mentor. His last solo concert titled ‘Perjalanan Hidup’ was staged 27 years ago at the then World Trade Centre. SADAQA is therefore his first solo concert in almost 3 decades and the only concert for the year that is charity-based. With special guest artiste, Raihan, Ramli will perform songs from his latest album – SADAQA. SADAQA features a compilation of 14 selected hits throughout Ramli’s solo career. SADAQA is in aid of Hasanah Mosque.

    Dear Andrew,I attended the November 8 show and rbemmeered seeing the keyboard player but did not realise that he was the former keyboard player with Sweet Charity. I saw Sweet Charity many times in concert during the Seventies. At one concert Sweet Charity appeared as a four piece. Ramli did not turn up as he was unwell. The keyboard player did the singing and they did a great version of Amazing Grace with him singing and Wan burning on the guitar. His passing is regretted. He and the bass player Hassan who passed away years ago. Regards.Joseph.C.Pereira
