Since 33 years P. Ramlee passed away, the aura and charisma of the legendary entertainer is still as strong as ever.
In his short, colourful career in the entertainment industry, Tan Sri P. Ramlee directed 54 films, acted in 62 films, wrote 359 songs and sang more than 200 of them.
He started in the industry in 1948 and continued till he died of a heart attack on May 29, 1973. He was 44 years old.
The last song recorded was Air Mata di Kuala Lumpur, sung by his wife Saloma in 1972. She passed away at the age of 48 on April 25, 1983.
Legions of fans continue to pay tribute to the great artiste and his wife. Many performed or re-recorded their songs, and held special occasions in their memory. P. Ramlee's memorabilia, including records and pictures, adorn the homes of many fans.
The authorities too, have put P. Ramlee's name on the tourism map. These include Rumah P. Ramlee in Penang (restored to almost its original state) and Pustaka Peringatan P. Ramlee and Jalan P. Ramlee in Kuala Lumpur. Then there are privately-owned restaurants dedicated to P. Ramlee and Saloma.
