A QUIRKY and sensual blast from the past, Ghazal Party Queen aims to portray rural life in all its dramatic glory, writes AREF OMAR.
Who says life before Jom Heboh and Sehati Berdansa was boring? People then really knew how to party.
Picture the highlight being men dressed in drag who could gelek and joget like the best of the girls to addictive music.
During the 60s and 70s, the Ghazal Party was the most happening entertainment event for villagers in the north from Penang to Kedah.
It played the role of bringing people together to escape the rigours of harsh rural life through accessible song and dance.
