Accidental artiste

This article is from The Star Online (http://thestar.com.my)
URL: http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/6/2/mustread/20080602092343&sec=mustread

__________________________________________________________________________
SHE isn't your typical picture of an artiste - no airs and graces, no flamboyant jewellery and perhaps strange to some, she dons the tudung, off stage and on.

"I was wearing tudung before I started to make music, and I wear it still, it has become my comfort zone," says singer-songwriter Yunalis Zarai.

Calling herself a "simple person", this 22-year-old law student regularly dons jeans, T-shirts and hoodies.

"I'm a huge fan of vintage T-shirts and jackets, hoodies and jeans. I like one-of-a-kind scarves with bright colours, but I'm pretty normal when it comes to dressing up," says Yuna, who also plays the piano.

Yuna didn't spend hours as a child indulging in dreams of becoming a singer – in a way she pretty much stumbled into the music industry.

"I started out writing songs when I was 19, because I just started to learn to play the guitar then," explains the 22-year-old Subang Jaya native. "When I was getting better at it, I recorded my own songs on my laptop, and a friend convinced me to play at his gig around two years ago."

The friend even had her name printed on the flyers before she even fully agreed to play, but from the look of it, it all turned out all right in the end.

To keep her studies as her main priority, Yuna usually only performs at gigs on weekends and holidays.

"I turn down gigs if they are the same time with my exams or assignment submission," says Yuna.

On stage she appears completely at ease, interacting with the audience as she would a casual friend, laughing and cracking light jokes before she breaks into song.

Strumming away at her guitar, she smiles slightly throughout her performances, changing up her voice as she goes along.

One of her signature tunes, After Midnight showcases the versatility of her vocals - it has her varying between deep notes and brief high pitches.

The law student writes songs in English, but has attempted at writing a few songs in Bahasa Malaysia. She admits that her ability in writing Bahasa Malaysia lyrics will take a while to improve, but she's trying.

"My music is a mixture of what I grew up with, the people around me and the music they play. There''s folk rock, acoustic and alternative elements, thanks to listening to a mixture of The Cardigans, No Doubt, Garbage, Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos and other 90s bands," explains Yuna, who says her current ultimate influence is Feist.

All songwriters have their regular places of inspiration - and Yuna's is her car.

"While I'm driving and staring vacantly into space is when I'm most likely to come up with a new song. It's a subconscious thing, I never really write them on paper the second I get a line or a melody," she says.

"It just plays in my head over and over again, and when I start holding my guitar everything naturally comes out, the lyrics and the melodies."

Yuna has already performed at numerous venues - the Moonshine acoustic event at The Apartment KLCC, Layar Tanchap in Shah Alam, No Black Tie, the Annexe Central Market and at university/college events.

Yuna's music career has only spanned two short years and her music has that fresh, enthusiastic sound about it and she is all geared up for more.

"It's such a fun thing to do, being able to make music that you like, and when people like it, nothing else matters, not getting airplays, getting signed, being on TV. The only thing that matters is that people appreciate your work," she says.

Survival in the music industry is another thing as many artistes emerge from nowhere and disappear just as quickly, but to Yuna if your love for music is real and the artiste believes in what they're doing, survival shouldn't be a problem.

"If you're talking in terms of income, that's a different story," she jests, but adds, "Making music on your own, that's a commendable quality. Because it's a personalised style of music, it's not tainted by people's demands. I hope that this will continue based on the love for music, and not just for the sake of jumping on the bandwagon."

For the fans, there's good news - Yuna plans to begin recording an album next month, so watch her page for updates.

To listen to some of her songs, visit www.myspace.com/yunaroomrecords, or search for her live performances on YouTube.

How do you avoid spoiling your child?

Talk to them

You have to remind yourself not to spoil the children especially when they sweet talk you. I think you have to be strict but at times you might need to be flexible as well. It depends on the circumstances. Of course, nowadays kids expect to buy something whenever they go to the shopping mall. So, you have to talk to them before you take them out and warn them otherwise they'll be upset. You have to talk to them. It's okay to buy a book or toy now and then but you can't allow them to have it every day. So talk to them before you take them out. Even though I only have one child I can't spoil him. It's quite challenging because when he goes to school, some of his friends have a lot of expensive items because their parents can afford it. Sometimes I might allow him to buy something new but not all the time. - Bor Yit Ling, mother of one boy, aged 9

Be firm
I am a disciplinarian. I believe that you can love your child and instill discipline. If they're done playing with their toys, they have to pick them up and put them back. After my daughter is done with her lunch she knows she has to put her plate in the sink. It's just training. I train them so they're not spoilt and they don't expect me or someone else to pick up after them. Whenever I take my kids out I do buy them things. I give my daughter an option when we go out – either go to a toy shop or a bookshop. You have a choice. You can't have both. She has to decide which she wants. She usually chooses the bookshop. If she picks up a book that is too expensive, I'll tell her it's too expensive and ask her to choose something that is more reasonably priced. I had the benefit of having a stay-at-home mom – she didn't spoil us, we had home-cooked meals, she was with us all the time. She had a way of disciplining us. I try to do the same with my own children.
- Selvi Gopal, mother of a girl and a boy aged six and two

Explaining helps

I think I have not spoilt my elder son but I have spoilt the younger one. Being the youngest I've been giving him everything he wants. But recently since having a bit of financial constraints, I explained to my younger son that mummy is not able to get you a game every week because papa does not have a full-time job, he has a part-time job at the moment and I can only give you one game a month. I explained to him that mummy has to work hard to bring home money to pay for all the bills. He seemed to be able to understand that and he said, “Fine mom, I will just decide on one game that I like best and I'll get one a month. Will that be all right?” And I said yes. Because I have kept to my promise for the past few months, he understands we are restricting our finances. I also told him that when I have more money I will get him two games every month. So far for the past three months he has not been nagging me about it. But my elder son is different. He has always been selfless and tells me I don't need to buy him expensive things. He has told me before that sometimes he eavesdrops on mummy and papa's conversations and he knows that we are having difficulties sometimes and he is more mature. I think I'm lucky that my boys are so understanding. - Marie Cho, mother of two boys aged 8 and 12
