I am on Raya Mood now! Everywhere I go I hear raya songs, in the shopping malls, restaurants, shop, cars, office even in my house (from the tv and radio). Well, there are always a few classic or signature songs for every festive season that perks up our mood to sing along, celebrate and be jolly.

One of the Raya songs that I love and can sing along is Menjelang Hari Raya by Datuk DJ Dave. The lyric is simple, easy to remember and meaningful. I have been listening to this song on every raya since my childhood time.

Down memory lane… Menjelang Hari Raya song was originally recorded in 1979 and is a perennial favourite for Raya celebrations since its first performance by Datuk Irwan Shah Abdullah, who is popularly known as D.J. Dave. 

Let’s celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri with love, kindness and forgiveness by 
sharing the spirit of the season with friends, families and loved ones. 

This year, Celcom Axiata Berhad has created a new remix on the classic hit. The new Menjelang Hari Raya (CUBE Mix) single is conceived and produced by The Cube and will be available exclusively on The Cube as part of its Musicube and Call Me Tones offerings. This is an exclusive collaboration between Celcom and Datuk D.J. Dave.

Menjelang hari raya
Berakhirnya puasa
Bergema takbir senja
Menyambut syawal tiba

Suasana riang ria
Terlihat sini sana
Menyeri malam raya
Terhias indah rupa

Oh… cantik berseri-seri
Tua dan muda berpakaian serba baru
Oh… sungguh meriahnya
Miskin kaya pun turut bergembira

Selamat hari raya
Aidil fitri mulia
Semoga berbahagia
Hidup aman sentosa

Dave’s unmistakable tenor vocals, the upbeat single also features world-renowned percussionist Steve Thornton who has performed with the likes of Tracy Chapman, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, and jazz legend Miles Davis, local turntable maestro DJ Nabila, who won the Choons Award for Best Female DJ for three consecutive years, and upcoming newcomer DJ Feeraz.
