Sarawak's brightest musical gems are set to take the stage at Rainforest World Music Festival 2021, happening virtually from 18 to 20 June.
The annual event organized by Sarawak Tourism Board will feature performances by eight of the Malaysian state's best homegrown talents — Alena Murang, At Adau, Nading Rhapsody, Mathew Ngau, Sang Rawi, Tuku' Kame', Kemada and Suk Binie'.
Taking on the theme 'Entranced, Liberated, Immersed', the festival will be livestreamed on its official webpage from 6 PM to 7.30 PM SG/PH time (5 PM to 6.30 PM ID/TH time) across the three days.
Viewers may also catch the festivities on Sarawak's Astro channel TVS (Channel 122), which is the event's official broadcasting partner.
“We are heartened to be able to bring the much-anticipated RWMF virtual, giving our local indigenous musicians the opportunity to share their music and songs with audiences around the world. We hope that RWMF will give everyone the opportunity to sing and enjoy music together, although we are apart,” shared Sarawak Tourism Board's CEO Puan Sharzede Datu Haji Salleh Askor.
Aside from having this year's line-up of musical guests, the show will also take viewers down memory lane as memorable performances from past editions of the festival are replayed. Tantalizing giveaways which include hotel discount vouchers, festival tickets and a grand prize worth RM2,000 will also be held during the programme.
To level up the viewing experience, Rainforest World Music Festival has also partnered with Grabfood and Shopee to offer festival-goers an exclusive array of merchandise and food take-away options as they watch the show.
