Tenor 1 | Co-Founder | Malaysian Malay | KL based

Hey y’all!

My name is Asnal and I am the 1st Tenor of Colour Of Voices. I am a late 80’s kid who was born in Penang but spent most of his life in Kuala Lumpur. Singing has always been my passion. I joined the school choir when I was 16. Since then, I have always been amazed by the beauty of human voices – when singing together in unison as well as in harmony. Singing can be a powerful tool in expressing oneself and also soothes the hearts of the listeners.

In the year 2007, I pursued my studies in KUIPSAS where I met Jaswan for the first time. We sang together in a Nasheed group where I developed ear training on how to sing in harmony and polished my singing skills. We participated in several inter-college music competitions together to gain exposure and build experience.

My interest in A Cappella music was ignited when the first Pitch Perfect movie was released in 2012. That was when I told Jaswan and Tux that we should form Malaysia’s very own A Cappella band; that we must do this seriously and live the dream we have always wanted.

My all-time favourite genre of music will always be soulful 90’s R&B. I could listen to ‘em Boyz II Men harmonizing all day long! It is something about their delivery of vocals that inspired me to be a better vocalist and express my emotions through music.
