Stomper Jumizah was on her way to an interview yesterday (Feb 17) at around 12pm when she thought a Malay wedding was happening at Raffles Place MRT station.

To her surprise, it was a group of boys busking in traditional red baju kurung and black pants.

They were playing traditional musical instruments, one of them being a kompang.

One of the boys can be seen in the photo standing while gesturing while the rest sits behind.

According to Jumizah, everyone stopped to hear and watch the group.

She said, "Everyone took out their handphones to record them and I love that we get to see something which promotes racial harmony in Singapore."
