I return once again with another APM2015 entry, my second instalment of this year’s edition. This time, I’ll be sharing miscellaneous shots I took during the “Red Carpet” event, the “Walk of the Stars” segment as well as a few shots I took post-event. Unfortunately there was no post-event reception this year and the “Walk of the Stars” segment had to be cut short due to time constraints before the event proper began, so there were not many photographs that I took and certainly less of a variety as compared to previous years.
Also since I am basically a one-man team, I had to leave the “Red Carpet” event at the hall’s entrance to take shots of the events transpiring on stage. In years past, I would have broken my entries into several postings, but this year, I’ll just post my miscellaneous snapshots under one entry, with my review coming much later, as I still have five thousand-odd photographs I need to sieve through and pick the best ones to be featured. Hope this filler entry before my review would help to satiate your thirst to view the photographs of the event. I will not put a timeframe to the publication of my review entry but I hope I will not take another month to post it up… 😛
From hearing budding and up-and-coming talents introducing themselves on national radio in the “Opening Act” segment on Hafeez Glamour‘s daily radio show “Go Glam“, you can now watch them present their talents live!!! The stage that gives them the opportunity to realise and take baby steps to spread their wings in our local Malayentertainment industry is the brainchild of two music activists, Olly Ismail and Alif Nuramin and organised by CMX International, Ilham Kosmik, Anchorvale CC MAEC and People’s Association Youth Movement (PAYM). The event brings together over fifteen of the talents who have been featured on the daily popular radio segment on 31st March 2012, which is this coming Saturday. What is unique about this unplugged concert is that it is free, given the number of talents involved!!!
Not only will the budding acts be the performers on that day, they will be joined by already established local solo artistes and bands like Fuad Rahman, Ikhsan Ace (former vocalist of Aryan Band), Kraton, Virus Cinta, B8, Revalina, Shahridzuan Selamat, Rudy Djoharnaen, Rifa’ah Ridzuwanulhakim and Dinodi, amongst others. The show will be hosted by recently-anointed “Best Tukang Karut” at the recent “Terjah! Chingay 2012” event and part-time deejay at RIA 897FM, Dzar Ismail. He will be joined by his fellow Anugerah Skrin 2010 alumnus, Raja Razie, and part-time model / actress / host Deanna Manto. Seeing the huge line-up and with the weather being very fickle of late, I really hope what happened at last month’s “Muzik Festival Melayu” at Marina Barrage, will not be replicated. Moreso since this concert will be held at the Floating Atrium of the Anchorvale Community Club, an outdoor facade. The concert is slated to begin at 6pm and end at 10pm. If you support local talents, this is the place to be this Saturday!!!
