Ghazal Parti is a performance that combines music, songs, comedy, and dance that is popular in northern Malaysia, especially in mainland Penang. The style of language used tends to be the northern dialects of Kedah and Penang.[1]


Ghazal comes from the Arabic word ‘Ghaz’ which means a song addressed to women. Ghazal in terms of language means love ballad, love expressions or speeches uttered to women or spoken to women. Ghazal is also known as a form of nasyid poetry which is a poem that displays the story of the poet's love affair with his lover. This art was very popular around the '40s to '60s. It has become popular culture and a must for the local community, especially when there is a party. Hence, it is called Ghazal Parti.[2]


In Ghazal Parti performance, the musical instruments used are gambus, violin, accordion, flute, drum or tambourine. However, the change of time and also the influence of music during the party ghazal performance also used musical instruments such as saxophone, trumpet, maraca, triangle and bongo.

All of the popular songs come from Arabs. Most popular songs came from Arabia itself and sung in Arabic or translated into Malay. Among the popular songs are Alabaladi, Anawintal Wahdina, Ahbabinna, Wai Ya, Ya Gamil, Istak na ya albi, ma'al wen telu etc. The Ghazal Parti popular songs are mostly taken from the songs of popular Middle Eastern singers such as Fairuz, Ommu Kulthum Muhammad Abdul Wahab, and also Abdul Halim Hafiz. Some songs have elements of advice, work ethic, romance, and even patriotism.
