At Adau to perform at ‘Rhythm and Colour: The Family Celebrates’ by SJFS

At Adau is set to perform at the event.

KUCHING, Aug 3: Award-winning band At Adau will perform at the St Joseph’s Family of Schools’ (SJFS) ‘Rhythm and Colour: The Family Celebrates!’ this Saturday, Aug 6, at 7.30pm.

According to a press release, At Adau will be doing their bit for charity by raising funds for SJFS’ new school building.

At Adau, an experimental world music band, started in 2014 and has achieved international recognition for their own brand of music.

Their tunes are a blend of modern and traditional music, with the use of different instruments from around the world.

This band is well-known in Sarawak’s local music scene and their performances are a highlight at both local and international music festivals.

SJFS shares the same vision, as per event music director Benedict Lo.

“In recent years, SJFS had come together to produce their own musical, based on the life of Sir James Brooke, the first White Rajah of Sarawak.

“The schools’ performing arts groups integrated local folksongs, culture, and music into their performances,” he said.

Lo expressed gratitude to the band (At Adau) for taking time off their busy schedule in order to be part of the charity event.

The band’s performance will be a learning experience for the budding young student performers.

Lo also hoped that there will be more collaborations in the near future.

Meanwhile, similar sentiments were expressed by At Adau band member, Meldrick Bob Udos, who plays the djembe, drum, cajon, and percussion.

He mentioned that the band is thrilled to be part of the event and looks forward to showcasing their performance to the young crowd in order to show them how important music is.

“Music is a perfect tool to create a positive vibe and creativity can create stories,” he added.

Meldrick encouraged the young performers to keep up the good work, and because music knows no boundaries, he encouraged them to think and act outside the box and not limit themselves.

The musical performance will take place on Aug 5 and 6 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are sold out but those who are interested may watch it free via the ‘Rhythm and Colour’ official website.

Donors may contribute to the schools’ building fund via online platforms (SPay, DuitNow or Simply Giving) made available on the same website. — DayakDaily
