Awang bin Omar (Che Ahmad)

Awang bin Omar, better known as Che Ahmad, is one of the most highly acclaimed rebab players in Kelantan. He is particularly known for his subtle musical style and unrivaled vocal mastery. As a child, Che Ahmad used to watch his father play the rebab and developed a deep interest in the instrument. He began his formal study of the rebab under the guidance of a master when he was thirteen years old. Che Ahmad soon learnt the performative and ritual aspects of the Main Puteri and Mak Yong traditions. He is now considered one of the true masters of these traditions.
