Asia Music Festival 2014 Performers

Hey y'olz! Back with more updates on Asia Music Festival 2014 performers.

As most of you know (if you read my previous post), I've mentioned almost all of the performers from Malaysia and International. Well, forgive me cause I've missed out on another Malaysian act. The band will be mentioned here in the post.

Alright. Lets get started.

Pisco. A band all the way from Taiwan. I believe most of you have looked up for the band's background at AMF14 website but found that they only posted video and photographs of the band. Well, here's a little bit about the band (with the power of Google). This band have a unique "set-up" whereby they combine dance and rock genres. Their tagline "We Should Not Hesitate To Bring Hapiness" says it all. They have performed at major music festivals throughout Asia such as, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and China. So basically, for those that like to dance, here is a band that you should not miss out on. Really looking forward to what this band can do this coming AMF14. For more on this band, you can visit their website at Pisco

Next up we have Soulmate from India. A band that inspired by the sound of Blues, Blues-rock, Soul, Rock 'n' Roll, Funk and R&B. In October 2002, Rudy Wallang and Tipriti Kharbangar form this band dedicated to play the Blues and spreading the awareness on this particular genre of music. Now, that is what I call heart and soul for music. Last year we have performers from India and they were awesome. This year? With a little bit of Soul, Funk, Blues and R&B, you know you're about to have the time of your life!

Last but not least we have a performers from Malaysia. They call themselves Salammusik. After listening to their music, they brings a unique taste of Ska, Reggae and Rap. Well, another unique performance that all of you should watch out during this year's AMF14.

So, there you go. All the of performers have been mentioned in my blog posts. Looks like its going to be one hell of a weekend ahead! Cheers!

Performers For Asia Music Festival - International Act

In my previous blog, I mentioned the performers from Malaysia. Now, its time for some international scene.

Beginning with a performer from Singapore, Masia One. My first impression of this performer do I put this.....I was expecting a dude but guess what. It's a GIRL and she can rap dawg! I'm a huge fan of hip hop beats and believe me when I tell you this! Her beat is sick! Now, I'm exited! Ok. A little background info on her, she was born in Singapore and she became a fan of hip hop music since the age of 8. She moved to Vancouver, Canada at the age of 9 and she started to develop her interest in break dancing and graffiti. But the fun really kicks in when she start studying architecture at University of Toronto. That is when she started to write her own rhymes and performing. Thus, began her music career.

Next up, we have Pancake 80 all the way from Philippines.This is a band comprising five musically talented individuals who share the same interest and love for music of different genres. From reggae, rock, pop alternative and especially new wave music of the 80’s to which they add their own flavor when covering songs.

Moving on, we have Ras Muhamad from Indonesia. This is a multi-talented man. From, recording, performing, bi-lingual lyricist, book author, radio host and producer. Also, self-proclaimed Raggae Ambassodor of Indonesia. He has relentlessly and ceaselessly spread the message of Raggae from the aspects of culture and history throughout Indonesia and to the likes of South East Asian regions. Now, we get the chance to listen and enjoy his message through the sound of Raggae!

Retrospect from Thailand is next in the list. Now, this is another rock performance being showcase at Asia Music Festival 2014. The band made of Big (guitar), Bomb (bass), Not (guitar) and Nap (drum/vocal). The specific genre of rock that this band carry is industrial metal rock music, a mix of death metal and thrash metal. Another head banging session and most probably mosh-pit.

The line-up above shows it all. I'm not going to say much other than I'm excited about all the performance this coming Asia Music Festival 2014. So, that's all for now. Nope I'm not done yet, still got several more bands to blog about and will post it in my next entry.

Performers For Asia Music Festival 2014 (Malaysian Performers)

Like I said in my previous post, I'll talk about the performers that are going to be at Asia Music Festival 2014 (AMF14) but for this post, I'm going to introduce the performers from Malaysia.

First off Drumcall. The band started with less than 10 members early June 2014. Now (2014), the community grew to more than 30 members. The interesting fact about Drumcall is this, it is a community made to give platform for drummers to practice together trough consistent drum shed and lesson. They have been performing in Kuching, Sarawak and this community is currently growing.
Please also check their Facebook page DrumCall

Next is Mad August. The band was formed in 24/08/2011. The name for the band was derived from their critical decision in the month of August. They have to choose between pursuing their dreams in the music scene or live an ordinary life. The name "MAD" come from an abbreviation of a philosophical slogan "Make A Difference". It simply shows that anyone can make a difference in life, even with a least of strength. The word "August" which in numerical "8" refers to success, opportunities and strength. The band plays modern rock and emo rock music (guess there is going to be head banging).

Last performers from Malaysia is MISALUVI AND MOTION FAMILY. This is not a band but its a dance crew. This is something new for this event. Normally when it comes to music festival, more of us would think of music but this time around, AMF14 showcase something different which is dance. I've heard of this dance crew before and they have a studio based here in Miri, Sarawak.

Asia Music Festival 2014

Most of you already heard the news about Asia Music Festival 2014. Same as last year, the huge event will be held at Eastwood Valley Golf and Country Club, Miri, Sarawak.

I attended the 2013 edition of AMF and it was AWESOME!! People are dancing and having the time of their life!

From my personal experience of last year's AMF, I find that this particular event does not focus on 1 specific genre of music. It can be instrumental, rock, dangdut, and etc. That is what makes this event different from Borneo Jazz Festival, RWMF and so on.

The line up for this year performance consist of 4 performers from Malaysia, 1 from Singapore, 1 from Thailand, 1 from India, 1 from Indonesia, 1 from Philippines and 1 from Taiwan.

Now, looking at the list of performers, its gonna be one hell of a night peeps! Will tell you guys more details on the performers and the price rate for the tickets in my next blog!
