Team BURO Answers: Guess the Raya song (Google Translate edition)

Familiar, yet different

Google Translate never fails at being (unintentionally) hilarious, as Team BURO discovers when we try to guess the classic Raya song... but with English lyrics

It’s not Hari Raya without Aidilfitri anthems, especially when we’re once again celebrating within the "bubble" of our own households. We can always count on familiar tunes from Saloma and Sudirman to raise our spirits. At a time when we can’t balik kampung, the rousing melody of Sudirman's classic is tinged with an extra dose of nostalgia (thanks, Covid) but there’s also comfort in the familiar.

No matter our race or religion, we all know at least one or two Raya songs—the ones every shopping mall plays—but would you still recognise them when the lyrics are Google translated from Bahasa Malaysia to English? Curious to find out, we gave ourselves the challenge of this Team BURO Answers: Guess the Raya song (Google Translate edition).

Take on the challenge too and guess along with us! We hope it brings you joy and laughter this Raya, as well as something to do either IRL or virtually with your loved ones!
