“Kabar Ma Kye” was composed by YMB based on the work by Thakin Ba Thaung.

The song blends the Burmese and Western styles.

So, let’s defend
This Golden Land
Till the End of the Time / World”

Kabar Ma Kye Bu

The literal meaning is “We will not forgive and forget till the end of time”

The song was composed by Naing Myanmar.

The tune is based on “Dust in the wind”.
