Margasatwa is a Malaysian Rock group formed by 5 young men from 5 states of Malaysia. Kimal (Terengganu), Syahir Majid (Perak), Fadhil Imran James (Sabah), Shadiq Sapian (Pahang) and Shahir Samsi (Kuala Lumpur). The band developed its sound to elements of Jazz, Malay Folk/Traditional music, Ballad, Psychedelic and Hard Rock to forge a unique Fusion Rock/Ballad signature. They recorded their first demo at Fasola Studio where Shadiq worked as a sound engineer and music tutor. Margasatwa played in gig spaces increasing their fans with different conceptual approach in their performances like reciting a poem, acting and auctioning their own painting. Their theatrical performance and songwriting gives a fresh approach to Nu-Malaysiana and Nusantara Rock music.
