There won't be the usual pasar malams and bazaars this year but Kampong Glam will still be celebrating the fasting month of Ramadan with daily festive light shows as well as various activities and programs such as workshops and tours.
From 7pm-12am daily, several areas in the Kampong Glam district including Arab Street, North Bridge Road, and Kandahar Street will be lit up with festive lights.
There will also be an animated light show, The Light of Gelam, where designs showcasing the Malay and Islamic heritage of Kampong Glam will be projected onto the facade of Sultan Mosque.
The Light of Gelam displays specially curated contents that are designed to showcase Malay and Islamic theme and elements with a special attention to Kampong Gelam’s traditional footprints, as well as its historical landmarks.
The show pays tribute to Sultan Mosque as a heritage monument and icon of Singapore, with the illustrative content combining the architectural elements of the mosque and its intricate motifs.
Malay and Arabic-themed tropes are sequenced with beautiful displays of animation and graphics, all synced perfectly to the songs composed by music director, Hardi Aris.
