Yuna Yunalis - Ustazah Rock

Yuna - Ustazah Rock (Indie Musician )

There's a new wave of talented ladies emerging from the local music scene and 22-year-old Yunalis Zarai (Yuna) is one of them. Yuna voice similar as Juliet The Orange and she can play guitar and the most thing she wear “tudung”. It’s really make me amazed her. Yuna (also known as Yunalis) is a young female acoustic/folk singer-songwriter based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, who began making a mark for herself in the local independent scene in 2007.

Yuna has been cementing herself in the local scene with complementary comparisons to the likes of Norah Jones and Rachel Yamagata. Her influences range from Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple, Tori Amos and Feist.

Sample songs can be heard on her MySpace profile at

Biography - Yunalis

She writes a couple of songs, and basically picks out the best out ofthe bunch to share it with the world.Nothing really mindblowing. It is what it is, you dont have to like it. Best listened when you’re lying on grass in a quiet afternoon, your toes in the sand facing the ocean,or when you’re in the car watching trees go by.

Singing became a habit when she was 6. She didn’t like her piano lessons and quit when she was 12. She wrote her first song when she was 15. She quit singing when she was 16.

She started writing songs again when she was 19. About the same time she started playing the guitar. Last year. She started playing the piano again. And now shes regretting that she quit music school.

She’s very new to performing with the guitar, and piano. Saya budak baru belajar. Kalau salah tolong tunjukkan. Other than that, shes pretty much a very normal person. Who loves JimiHendrix, Alanis Morissette, and Feist, and goofing around.
