Malaysian version by Evawanialisza Mohammad & The Music Mates ensemble
I am very thankful to them from taking the song finally really "around the world".
Dan marak, membara
Api…kau musnahkan kasihku
Kini kau pergi
Jauh dari ku
Mekar mengimbau mimpiku
Tak ku menduga
Ku mampu berlari
Apa yang ku lakukan
Kau tetap di ingatan
Dan pujuk manjamu
Masa ku berduka
Api yang marak
Api..kau jadilah temanku
Agar dapat bertemu
Kekasih yang kurindu
Api…kau membakar hidupku

I am a music teacher. have been a music teacher since 1991. Degree and M.A at University Putra Malaysia majoring in music. I love music since I was a kid and learnt to play piano since I am 10 years old. I love music so much and I opened a music club and class at my school SMK Bandar Baru Slak TInggi, Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia since 2004 when I moved over there.
My music group started with recorder ensemble group and mostly traditional music such as gamelan and caklempong group. Since the group was so active and the students really gave full commitment and co-operation, I decided to have a small music ensemble group include angklung, guitar, keyboard, flute and what ever musical instruments that could suit the music that we perform.
I like to make something different as our trade mark for the group. A lot of performances have been done since the ensemble group have been created. "The Music Mates" was the music ensemble group that joined the On The wind project.
The singer is Farisha Asmadi and she was also a teenager singer in Malaysia.
My guitarists are the talented Hasif Sham, Tariq Tahir, Harith Nadzmi and my keyboard player is Farez Asmadi, the brother of the singer.
Others are the flutiest Nadzirah Hamid, the born talented violinist Wan Muzammil and the angklung was played by Quratu and Irzam.
In the live performance the angklung is played by a larger group.
I hope to get my music group known by many people in my country and hopefully one day … all over the world.
I have worked hard for such a long time to build my school music group and we were happy to be invited to this project. I also want my students to be proud of their talent and achieve more than just perform around the school only.
The music in the song was not changed much but with our own musical instruments we gave it a personal and local touch.
The video was produced by my music club students themselves.
