A1 Matrix No.: A-7590 Artist: Miss Fadillah Title: Lintasan Kaseh B1 Matrix No.: A-7596 Artist: Miss Fadillah Title: Kebuasan Hitler Miss Fadillah, whose real name was Fedela Tagarino, was a popular singer in the pre-war period. Her father came to Malaya from the Philippines, and her mother was a local of Portuguese descent. The song 'Kebuasan Hitler' (The Cruelty of Hitler) was specially composed as anti-Nazi propaganda. A Straits Times article from January 1941 claimed that the recording "tunefully but effectively indict[s] the man who, with Mussolini, is recognised by all Malays to be an enemy of Islam and of all races not falling within the so-called 'Aryan' category."
