陈同同壁画

陈同同壁画

从一位朋友口中得知了这个壁画,所以今天就去找了。虽然已知道大概的位置,但是找了好久还是找不到。最后,因为不甘心所以就去找他问个明确的地址。
这幅壁画真的很难找,它躲在一条平时应该都不会有人经过的小巷里。今天我找到的时候,天色已经非常昏暗了。幸好是我的同事载我去找的,要不然真的会很危险,因为那里有点暗也有点阴森。这条阴森的小巷乔治市高庭(Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling)的对面,AIA的旁边。

Heard from a friend about this mural and so I went to search for it today. Though I have roughly knew the location of the mural, but after a long search, I still found nothing. Not giving up, I went to find my friend and ask for the exact location. This mural is hiding inside a small alley which is rarely passed by anyone. Today, when I found this mural, the sky has turned dark. Fortunately, I got my colleague accompany me to find the mural and we went by his car. Otherwise, it will be very dangerous as the alley is quite dim and spooky. This alley is located opposite the Georgetwon High Court (Pitt Street side) and beside the AIA company.


陈同同其人
艺名,原名不祥。生年亦不祥,卒于1983年。
早年学艺于戏班,也曾粉墨登场,多演丑角。战后一段时期犹见他在戏棚上演出,后来脱离戏班,成为走唱艺人,手抱月琴,琴杆挂签诗,卖签兼卖唱。
50年代末,受丽的呼声有线广播的赏识,开始在该台作录音广播。节目名称为《福建杂碎调》,每周播三个时段,每一时段一个小时。《福建杂碎调》节目也在怡保吉隆坡丽的呼声播出。稍后在国营电台录音广播。国营电台的节目名称为《陈同同弹词》,每周一个时段,每一时段半个钟头。槟城分台开播后,收听范围只限北马。丽的呼声的录音在1967年该台工潮后因人事变动而中止。国营电台的录音则持续到他去世为止。然丽的呼声一直持续重播其录音。
民间走唱是选唱各别曲牌或杂碎调;电台录音则是说唱长篇故事,内容不外乎忠孝节义等的传统价值观。

Tan Tong Tong (unknown - 1983) is stage name; real name unknown.
Apprenticing in itinerant troupe in early years and playing minor roles on the stage. After WWII, he was still seen performing on the stage for a short period of time. He left the troupe later and become an itinerant bard who played Yue Qin and sang out the fortune of his clients from the soothsaying sticks.
In the late 1950s, Tan Tong Tong began making recordings on Redifution. The one-hour program, which was entitled "Hokkien Miscellaneous Strains", three times a week. "Hokkien Miscellaneous Strains" also aired on the Redifution of Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur. Tan Tong Tong's program on Radio Malaya was called "Tan Tong Tong Tan Ci (Folk Ballads)". This half-hour program once a week and aired to the northern areas of Malaya. Recording with Redifution was terminated in 1967 due to personnel alteration of Redifution after a strike, while recording with the national radio (Radio Malaya, and later RTM) continued until his death. However, previous recordings were still aired on Redifution.
Tan Tong Tong sang minor or miscellaneous strains during itinerancy. But on the radio, he sang and told long stories which were tinted with traditional values such as loyalty and filial piety.
