Who we are
Founded in 2016, Wicked Music People seek to provide a platform in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the performance of early music (particularly vocal and instrumental music of the late Renaissance and the Baroque). Where possible, we play on period instruments (such as baroque violins, violas da gamba, harpsichord, &c), and we are guided by modern sensibilities and a commitment to freedom of expression while remaining true to the music and the appropriate performance practice.

What we do
We aim to spread the love and beauty of early music in Malaysia and to make it truly accessible. Our regular concert venue is the Wicked Pancake Parlour, a humble space above the Yellow Brick Road café in Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur. However, we have also played in concert halls and theatres such as Dewan Filharmonik Petronas and the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.
We've had a very eventful two years since our founding: We’ve hosted more than 25 events in KL and Penang, ranging from early music concerts, outreach demonstrations & performances to workshops and collaborative efforts with other groups such as VerSeS, Pro Musica (Penang), Ensemble Virama, and The Sutera Ensemble. Wicked Music People have also been featured in festivals such as OperaKUL 2017 and the George Town Festival 2018
