Born 88 years ago today, P. Ramlee’s artistic achievements left an indelible mark on the cultural history of Malaysia.
P. Ramlee was a prolific actor, director, writer, and musician who contributed to more than 60 films and composed around 250 songs.
After his death in 1973, Malaysians kept his legacy alive, honoring him with posthumous awards and naming halls, museums, and other buildings after him.
Today’s Google Doodle highlights the Malaysian legend’s diverse artistry that transcended the entertainment scene and won the people’s hearts.
It shows him as people best remember him — sporting a thin mustache and a checkered suit, his head cocked slightly to the side.
