Preview of RWMF at Taylor’s University, KL


The much talk about Rainforest World Music Festival will kick off on the 12 July with the official launch followed by the 3 days of workshops and stage performances in Kuching, Sarawak.

Before that however, a special preview will be held at the Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus in Subang Jaya on July 10 and 11 for audiences to experience the magic of the festival firsthand.

The preview will highlight the performances of HATA and Čankišou. HATA, are coming as a 9 piece band with musicians from Malaysia, Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. Their music shifts from the spiritual and the evocative, to the exciting and joyous. They encapsulate the many facets of Asia – capturing, molding, fusing, and coming up with a unique sound yet completely enchantingly Eastern.

Cankisou, on the other hand, is one of the top world music bands in the Czech Republic and their most recent album made 17th in the World Music Chart Europe in November 2011. This band is completely energetic and the music is riveting. They bring with them a huge collection of exotic instruments and an unforgettable lead singer.
