A Tapestry of Baba Poetry
Although there is an ever increasing range of books on the dress, architecture, furniture, silver and much else of the Babas and Nyonya/Straits Chinese there's little published about how this mixed Chinese/Malay group amused themselves. Chee has remedied this by bringing together a wide selection of their traditional songs (with musical scores) and poetry. All of the contributions have English translations.The book also contains short pieces on Peranakan culture and an ample selection of photographs. This fourth edition includes many new poems, songs and colour photographs together with other amendments to the earlier editions. 137 pages with a CD included,
