Sing Along With Malaccan Portuguese (Kristang)

Hosted by Martin - The Malaysian Portuguese Chef & Chorister


“Ke sorti kambradu, teng bong.” (“Hello my friends, hope all is well”), I'm Martin Theseira, a Malacca Portuguese (Kristang) descendant born and raised in Praya Lane Melaka, Malaysia. Growing up in Praya Lane was like growing up in paradise. Unobstructed views of the Straits of Malacca from our backyard, the sound of waves gently caressing the coast in the background. When night fell, the stars would sparkle brilliantly in the darkness as if they were shining only for us! This place was once a vibrant fishing village until our seafront was reclaimed in 1984. I learned fishing from my late uncle since my childhood days. Later I decided to promote Kristang Heritage Cuisine which forms an integral part of Melaka’s rich and unique cuisine that is more than 600 years old. One of the main dishes that I am very proud of is my home-made salted-fish, mango pickle paste and you must try it because they can't be found anywhere else in Malaysia! Music has always been part of my life. I have been a choir member of the Assumption Chapel since I was a teenager and also involved in the Kristang Music scene with the guitar and the ukelele is my favourite instrument. I hope to open through this live on-site virtual experience a new page for you to understand and appreciate where I come from, my heritage, traditions and the culture of my Community!

Highly recommended. Martin gives us a perfect introduction to Melakan heritage through a context of songs and oral tradition. Although it is thoroughly enjoyable even if you don't know Portuguese (the show is run in English), this is an extraordinary experience for Portuguese speakers, from anywhere around the world. The spoken Kristang is very familiar, the vocabulary is irresistible, and the songs give us fascinating glimpses of local lives possibly different from ours, but with so much in common. Wherever there are Portuguese links, there are aways 'rede' and 'te kuseh apom'. Ta alegrah, Martin and team! Sergio Teixeira Coelho

I loved the show. My sincere congratulations to all those who contribute to protect the Kristang culture! Special thanks to Martin Thesera, Martim Teixeira if it were in the modern Portuguese spelling.
