Growing up in Malaysia, our culture and customs are significant areas of familial focus. It is important to not lose touch of who we are; the rite of passage to transfer knowledge is traditionally passed from one generation to next. “Anak Dara” is a Malay term that translates to ‘a young and unmarried child’. It is a term of endearment my mother often uses. Here “Anak Dara” is an ode to the diaspora leaving home and the journey to recover what was lost through materiality, performance, and the power of my mother’s voice.
