Asia Music Festival - Hevance
Hevance is a Malaysian Independent Iban rock band from Bintulu, Sarawak. Formed in 2001, the band was known to the public with their first single Semampai Ngenang in the year 2008 but what really boosts their popularity was the second single Aku Nemu which was in their mini studio album or EP titled Sada Ati in the year 2010. The song topped the charts in most of the local radio station in Sarawak which later was nominated for 3 categories in Anugerah Carta Borneo ERA 2010/11 organized by ERA FM. To be the only iban band nominated in the event, Hevance break the boundaries of local iban music to be accepted in a Malay Award.
The following year the song was awarded for BEST SONG in an all Iban artist competition called Anugerah Juara Rentak Ruai (AJARR) 2011/12 organized by local radio station in Sarawak CATS FM.
