Berkatlah Yang DiPertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan
State anthem of Negeri Sembilan
|Lyrics||Tunku Zakaria Mambang|
Berkatlah Yang DiPertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan is the state anthem of Negeri Sembilan. It was composed by Andrew Caldecott (1884–1951) with lyrics by Tunku Zakaria Mambang, and it was used by Tuanku Muhammad, who was the ruler at that time.
The anthem had went under a revitalization project by the efforts of the second son of the current Yang DiPertuan Besar, Tunku Zain Al-'Abidin ibni Tuanku Muhriz. The rearranged composition, recorded with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and choirs from several schools across the state, was first presented to the public on the installation ceremonies of Tuanku Muhriz and his wife Tuanku Aishah Rohani in early 2009, and it was officially launched on 27 October 2010.
